“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 ...

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 ...

Schaer+ Programmer using PIC12F629 microcontroller

Description Schaer is a generic programmer circuit capable of uploading and downloading firmware to/from several electronic devices like microcontrollers and eeproms. This and other programmers came to my attention when I was working in CAMBADA, the robotic soccer team from the University of Aveiro, and since all other programmers available there were too expensive for me to buy or build, I decided to build ...

Programmable watch with four character display using PIC16F628A microcontroller

Programmable watch with four character display You'll be the talk of the town when you wear this obnoxious, oversized, completely impractical wristwatch. Display your favourite foul language, song lyrics, prime numbers, etc. Inspired by the Microreader kit, I decided to make a giant watch using similar sixteen segment displays. Twelve hours later, I came out of my masochistic fugue and stopped trying to rou ...
