What ways could I simultaneous reset 2 PIC's? I am working on a PIC to PIC communication, and I want to know how I could reset them at the same time.
I was just going to use a DPDT push button and send each side of the MCLR reset through each side. I wasn't sure if it would cause problems during programming, thats why I asked before I build the circuit.That does seem like an unusually easy question for you to be asking Krum.. You just tie the reset lines together, if you still need to reset them separately use an OR gate from their original reset circuit.
During programming, it gives a device address error. I am just going to have independent reset switches, since I already put them on. Also, there is no benefit of having them reset at the same time since they are doing independent tasks, and only talking when one needs to send data to the other pic.Why doesn't the MCLR work when they're tied together?
Low amount of data, one is the master and the other is the slave. the slave will handle the LCD, 8 LED indicators, various LED's and etc. It basically sends and receives data from the master, such as what LED's to light up, and LCD display. Simple data transfers.Regardless of how you communicate between them, there's no reason (or purpose) in trying to make then reset exactly together.
How much data are you trying to transfer, and for what purpose?.
