Probably for Rob, Peter & Geoff.

Re the little bit of discussion recently about using other TTL devices on the console when the 1455's in circuit.

I noticed in Geoff's original design, that pins 9 & 10 are only used of initial programming, and not in the final circuit.

It has always had me wondering if whether 9 & 10 could be put to use for connecting other TTL devices for wireless access.

If so would that be able to not only provide wireless forms of access, which we already have, but also be able to feature over the air firmware updating.

(Both aware & wary of firmware updates over these sorts of links, but at times worth the risk cost).

Pin 9 and 10 can function as a I2C.
If you add some software you should be able to use those pins for communicating with something else.
If you can repurpose pin 8 and pin 4 then SPI becomes available.

I have a 1459 chip
in picture you can see changes (in RED). I don't know if it is good, because the serial port is not on the same registre.

you can use rc4/rc5 for led with ComPort transmit/receive

(in magenta: new connection)

pins 9 and 10 are accessible, but only when the 1455 is in programming mode - and to get there requires pressing the 'select mode' button. their function (once enabled) is to turn on/off Vpp and Vcc when programming other than a permanently attached pic32. while present, this functionality is there "for future use" and needs to be turned on before use via commands coming in through the 1455's usb port.

if you really wanted a remote pic32 firmware upgrading ability, your best bet would be to use an arduino pro mini. using the 328p firmware that pic32prog can program into any arduino, it is possible to turn on/off Vcc and carry out programming of an attached pic32 using commands sent to the arduino mini's serial port. this could be attached to an HC-12 for instance. you would likely also need to figure out a scheme for sharing the HC-12 with micromite basic.
