I’m trying to build this dual DC motor module for my robot project
And I did not have the space for placing an ICSP pin header on the PCB.
So i quickly mocked up this design.
Step 1: Geting the parts
Well to build the ICSP socket with header for the PICkit 2. We need 1part experiment board I used the one with raster 2.54mm holes where every 3 are connected in rows of solder islands.
I had one 18pin DIL IC socket just lying around so i used that one. (the 16F676 is a 14pin chip)
and i took 5pins angled pin header (Always have lots of break of pin headers at home.)
and some AWG26 PTFE red and yellow wire.
Step 2: Drawing
Well this is pretty straight forward just draw out your design on the experiment PCB
Just follow this table, for the 16f676.. I have not checked it up but this may be the same for all 14pin pic16F***

1 MCLR/VPP 4
2 VDD 1
3 VSS 14
4 ICSPDAT 13
5 ICSPCLK 12
