USB PIC Programmer

This page is dedicated to everybody needs to program a PIC (Microchip) device via USB port. Looking on the web for ready-to-use  projects, I found a good one called Open Programmer, coming with several schematics, PCBs and Open Source code. The original link is http://openprog.altervista.org/OP_ita.html What concerned me was the need to mount, on the mainboard, a specific socket board depending on the model ...

Original PICKIT-2 microcontroller programmer

These days I was thinking about a better PIC programmer that can work with MicrochipMPLAB IDE software so that I can write my own programs or edit someone else’s programs. I found that there are numerous versions of the famous Microchip PICkit 2 on the web. Some of them are using the original schematic published by Microchip and some are lite versions – with different parts or simplified schematics. None of ...

“Fluffy” – A Scenix (and PIC) Programmer

I was trying to think of a suitable name for this project, and after literally seconds of careful deliberation, I gave up and decided to call it Fluffy. Sorry. Anyway, Fluffy is a SX programmer for people who havealready experimented with PIC chips, and want to try out the Scenix SX family. I built Fluffy because I wanted to experiment with the SX's, but didn't want to spend $300 or so bucks on the official ...

Enhanced 5/2-day Central Heating Programmer with serial computer interface using PIC16F628A

Overview This project has come about from my desire to control my home heating from work.  As I have a VPN between work and home a straightforward relay controlled from a PC would seem the easiest solution.  However I also wanted a control unit that I could operate in the house without resorting to the computer.  For example, I get up late and the heating is off, I just want to hit a button and turn it on.  ...

In circuit serial programmer for PIC16F87X

Intro Here you can find all resources you need to build your own in-circuit serial PIC16F87X programmer. After experimenting with the PIC16F84, time had come to move on to more powerful devices, such as the PIC16F871. These devices offer a low voltage progamming (LVP) mode. This basically means that it is possible to modify the contents of the program memory without applying a high voltage (12 V) to the dev ...
