Understanding ICSP for PIC Microcontrollers

Programming microcontrollers isn't hard. Building a programmer makes a great first electronics project. The goal of this instructable is to explain the simple 'in circuit serial programming' method used with Microchip PICs. Step 1: Why ICSP? Programming a big DIP (through hole) chip is easy. Pop it into a socketed programmer, burn, and return to the application circuit. Test and repeat. Things get more diff ...
