Adapter for small size PIC/AVR chip programming
This is a homemade adapter I made for programming SOIC/QFN size microchips that I use in my micro airplanes (http://maxoffsky.com/tech-blog/rc-micro-spitfire-airplane-build-log/).
If you want an adapter to connect and fit any size microcontroller, this Instructable is for you.
Tools and parts that you will need:
+ Hot glue or epoxy
+ 6 old floppy disks
+ plexiglass or piece of thick plastic
+ 8 pin chip socket or just pins that you could plug into the PIC programmer
+ 6 springs (abt 2mm diameter, 2.5cm long)
+ drill or copper wire to make holes for the springs
