    I am a newbie in the microcontroller field and have started a project designing a gas sensor using PIC16F917. Is it reprogrammable? And can it be simulated using Proteus? Can the code be burnt using MPLAB? It is surprisingly difficult to ascertain. I think the Proteus part is true.

    Read the μC datasheet,you will find the answer there.
    Do the same for the programmer and simulator.

    This is what you look for:

    High-Endurance Flash/EEPROM cell:
    - 100,000 write Flash endurance
    - 1,000,000 write EEPROM endurance
    - Flash/Data EEPROM retention: > 40 years


    You can reprogram it 100,000 times.

    You can load the EEPROM 1,000,000 times.

    I couldn't find anything ,did you?
    Can you read English?
    First page says "Flash based",google it and translate it to Hindi if you have to !
