I'm starting with pic and pic basic pro .
I heard that an In circuit programing can be done ,
My Question is what type of software , hardware should i use to be able to program my pic 16f877 in circuit .
Thank you
Regards.

Re: PIC Beginner Q?

Hi,
There are lots of ICSP modules available for free. ICD1 schematics should help you. But if you are using some complicated circuit a better option is go for a separate programmer like Oshon PIC programmer.
Free software and circuit is avialable.

Re: PIC Beginner Q?

Do you see AN732 at MICROCHIP web site. Check it out!

AN732 is bootloader for PIC which ICP.

Re: PIC Beginner Q?

Post edited by Cluricaun, many new experiences in such a short time. Next time I call it spamming and you get a warning...

from my experience.

to start PIC.

1) look at the very simple example to start with such turn on LEDs
2) Chip to start with is 16F84
3) Learn assembly language first
4) Next, using CCS as C compilar
5) work with more complex project

My experience again.

1) Search the website for more examples
2) build up yourself database of PIC

My experience continue:

1) Finding the easy IC to communicated with PIC such temp sensor
2) Using RS232 between PC and PIC. It makes more fun.

Again, my experience continue

1) The window program using to communicate with PIC is VB. it is what I found
2) From this point, the complex project can be build up from

My experience again continue:

1) Now, search for the web for the project in which complete using PIC as microcontroller.
2) the best search tool is google. you can type such as "PIC", "project" to get the results

My experience again:

1) Since now you are a good at PIC. you can use it to do your own projects

The idea projects are:

a) sensor controller
b) alarm system
c) robot
d) measurement system

I need help.

Im new in PIC.
I'm doing a project using a PIC16F819 microcontroller recently.
Can anyone tell me whether any place can found a low cost PIC programmer(self build) and software for my project?
Is it a PIC16F84A programmer(self build) can be use to program PICF819? :?:

Thank you.

Seah

You can use a both HVP (High Voltage Programming) and LVP (Low Voltage Programming) for 16F819.


Byron Jeff's Trivial HVP Programmer: www.finitesite.com/d3jsys/proghvp.html

If you are from Europe you can just replace the American/Japaneese transistor 2N2222 with a general purpose European NPN transistor like BC547 or BC548, in Europe they are much easier to obtain and cheaper than 2N2222. (BC547/BC548) has different pinout than 2N2222).


Trivial 16F87X/16f62X LVP programmer: www.finitesite.com/d3jsys/index.html#TLVP

16F84(A) can only use HVP programming, while the 16F84A replacements 16F627 and 16F628 (and 16F819 too) can use both HVP and LVP.

For 16F819 you can use all programmer that 16F62X can use.

PIC Beginner Q?

Does anybdy know if it can program the 16f877A
and is there any difference between 877a and 877 algorithm?

Main site: www.voti.nl/pic/n_index.html

Direct link without frames: http://www.voti.nl/picfaq/index_1.html#What's%20the%20difference%20between%20the%20*%20and%20*A%20(for%20*=16F84,%2016F628,%2016F877%20etc)?
The *A is the newer version of the *. For some chips there might even be a *B version.

In most cases you will be able to use the *A chip instead of the *, but you'd better check the document that describes the differences. Go to the page on Microchips website that describes the chip, and get the 'migration' document.

Watch out: the 16F87*A chips use a programming algorithm that is very different from the 16F87* chips, so unless your programmer / PC software explcitly supports the 16F87*A chips you will probably not be able to program them.
