  1. After further thinking on this topic, I have found the answer. The header files supplied within the SourceBoost env. for 16F1827 is incorrect for _EEPROM symbol address. The address should be set to 0xF000 and not 0x2100. Forcing the address in the #pragma statement as shown below fixs the problem :- #pragma DATA 0xF000, 253, 200 Therefore, this is clearly a bug in the header file define.
  2. Gents, I would like to ask for your support on this one pls, as I have checked the forum but could not find any references to this issue I see. Background I am changing my project target from a PIC16F648A to a PIC16F1827. I have changed the internal readback EEPROM routine to reflect the register difference and find that I read back 0xFF from EEPROM that should have been pre-loaded. On debugging my issue, I looked at MPLAB IDE -> View -> EEPROM directly after the compile to see if the values were being setup correctly. I dont see these values being stored to EEPROM. On the 648A the EEPROM is setup correctly On the 1827 the EEPROM remains as 0xFF The Issue On a target PIC16F1827, using the #pragma statement to pre-load the EEPROM, I don't see any of the values defined by the pragma to be stored in the EEPROM data area. Code Fragment :- #pragma DATA _EEPROM, 13, 200 The results When compiling, I then check the EEPROM values in MPLAB IDE using View->EEPROM and the values are all 0xFF (i.e unchanged). I have also programmed a target and check the EEPROM read back as 0xFF where I would expect my values. - I have checked the PIC16F1827 include file and the symbol is defined correctly as 0x2100 My System details:- MPLAB Certified Windows XP 5.1.2600.2 Service Pack 3n\a Source Boost = BoostC Optimizing C Compiler Version 6.97 (for PIC16 architecture) PIC16F1827 Any advise would be welcome.
