Low cost ICSP PIC-programmer using PIC16F648A

Galvanic from PC isolated PIC programmer The Wisp648 from www.voti.nl is an In Circuit Serial Programmer to program a flash PIC which mostly can stay in your circuit. No irritating doings like pulling the PIC out of the PCB, place it in the programmer, programming it, pull it out the programmer and place it back in the PCB, over and over again, it can stay in the circuit on your breadboard or PCB while prog ...

PIC micro Timer Code

Here's the minimal code to make timer 1 (a 16 bit timer) work using PICBasic. General descriptions of PIC timer variables used to control the timer: (you should be able to use these no matter what programming language you use): T1CON.0 is the first bit of the timer configuration byte, this bit is used to start and stop the timer. --so-- T1CON.0=1, starts the timer T1CON.0=0, stops the timer TMR1H is the tim ...

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 ...

PIC PROGRAMMER MkV using PIC12F629

PIC Programmer MkV is designed to get you into PIC Programming for just a few dollars. It uses just 12 components. Most of them will be in your "junk-box" and the PC board is a small piece of matrix board. It's the cheapest way to get started. As well as PIC PROGRAMMER MkV you will need these 4 things: 1. A desk-top computer with DB-9 serial port. (This programmer will not work on a lap-top computer and may ...

“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.  ...

Pic 16F676 ICSP programing socket for the PICkit 2 programer

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 s ...
