Parallel Port Microchip PIC Micro Controller Programmer

PIC Programmer is an essential tool if you wish to learn or build projects with Microchip PIC Micro Processors.

This programmer is built using Free Windows Software called WinPicProg and other similar software from PICALLW or Oshosoft

 Parallel Port Microchip PIC Micro Controller ProgrammerProgrammer PCB is double sided PTH board. In this programmer, you have a 0.3 Inch IC socket (40pin) on the main board, where you can place either 8, 18 or 28pin ICS for programming. An adaptor PCB with male/Female header is supplied with this kit for 40pin DIP. (without 40pin DIL Socket) 

However, make sure that you insert PIC ICs at the proper location on this 40Pin socket. Suitable markings of placement are made on the PCB.

I have included required hardware settings in the DOC for Oshonsoft parallel programming software

Warning: This programmer is controlled from Parallel Printer Port of your PC. 

If you keep Micro-controller chip on this powered programmer & try to PRINT from any application,  it would damage the micro-controller. Apply power to this programmer only after running the programming software.
