This programmer is Essential when experimenting with PIC. Programs PIC16Fxxx and PIC18Fxxxx series (8, 18, 28 and 40 pins)
16F84A, 16F877A, 18F452 (DIL and PLCC) tested successfully with the IC-Prog software. 18F4550 (DIL) works fine with the PICPgm programmer software. Also programs EEPROMs (8 pins) type 24LCxx with the IC-Prog software.
When working with a 16F877, 18F452, 18F2550 or a 18F4550, prototype programming with a bootloader can be done with the excellent Tiny PIC bootloader, through the RC6 & RC7 pins. But, you will need this PIC programmer to write the PIC the first time with.
PLCC is also possible! Just build a small adapter-pcb with a 44-pins PLCC-socket and a 40-pins DIL output… only 5 wires are needed!
