without comments

Important update!

We have just released another update to ROBOTC for Cortex & PIC. This release is required to use Cortex motor ports 1 or 10. In earlier versions,  you may encounter a firmware bug that can cause the motor control circuits to overheat and burn out.

Cortex Microprocessor

Enhancements in this release include:

  1. Support for direct wired USB cable between PC and  VEX Cortex for downloading user programs and debugging added.
  2. Support for Debugger “Debug Stream” window added. User programs can easily write (“print”) to a text window on the PC.
  3. Faster firmware downloading. It now takes just 10 to 15 seconds. User programs download in just one or two seconds.
  4. Fix control of H-bridges for motors 1 and 10 to prevent “shoot through” and the potential for internal short circuits.
  5. A few minor bugs fixed in the compiler.
