    looking for PIC 12F6xx or 16Fxxx Programmer schematic to build...

    anyone have one available to download or know of a website to get it?

  2. Hi,
    There are many out there I am sure but here is a simple
    parallel port one together with its driver -

    Cheers - Joe

    great information but i'm looking for a serial or usb design

    sorry i did not specify before

  4. Google it!

    As important as the hardware programmer is the software you're going to
    be using.. These links may help; for the software (is very good).

    And try a JDM programmer for starting out; (schematic there)

    Be aware that some of these programmers just won't work properly. The
    one above will program 16f628A's just fine, but 16F877A's it just isn't
    happening. Is likely RS232 levels causing it.

    You really need something like this if ironing out the unknowns;

    You might want to check out the Olimex PIC-MCP-USB from
    in Colorado at about $87. Will do all DIP types up to 40 pins except
    17000 series and is meant to be compatible with the PIC Start+ from
    Microchip. As new versions of PICStart+ come out, free firmware
    upgrades are available at the Sparkfun site. Runs seamlessly under
    the MCLAB IDE software, available free at the Microchip site. Runs on
    40 pin ZIF socket. USB power, no external power supply needed. ICSP
    header and cable provided.
