Having Issues with breadboard p1 setup.
I've recently bought the p8x32a-d40 and wired it up as per the typical connections diagram in the datasheet without the optional EEPROM and with/without an 5mhz crystal. Also have 2 0.1uF ceramic capacitors between the VDD and VSS.
When I try it identify the chip it succeeds once, after that it wont find it until the USB is unplugged from the prop plug or I disable/restart the COM port in device manager. I've tried 2 different prop plugs, several usb cables/ports, different pcs but the result is always the same a above.
Before biting the bullet and buying another chip since its the last thing to replace I thought id ask here if anyone has seen this behaviour before and there is something else causing this?
