Hi,

I want to use PICkit 2 to program an external EEPROM out of circuit (Microchip 25LC1024).

PICkit 2 Readme file describes electrical connections between the two.

What I can't figure out is how to generate a HEX file so I can load it into the EEPROM. MPLAB IDE has all support for the chip showing in red (not available).

Any advice?

Thanks.

Data can be a pure binary file or a .wav file, depending on application.

Could you point me to some utilities that can generate a hex file that PICkit 2 would understand?

Thanks.

PICkit is surely understanding standard Intel hex format, that's used for all Microchip flash files. Google for binhex converter.
