'[EE] I2C Programmer Anyone?'

Suddenly I need an I2C programmer in the worst way. I need the
application as well. Can run on Win2K+ or DOS  (have both).

Help, I need it tomorrow. Everybody I looked at are expensive
and in EU, not in the USA.

Any ideas? I can probably whip something up as a breadboard
I guess...

Hi Bob,

I don't get it. What is the target?  An I2C EEPROM, or ... ?

What's a "I2C programmer"?

Last time I needed one, I breadboarded the circuit on the bottom of
this page and used the ponyprog software.

Are you trying to program i2c EEPROMs?

Your computer already has the hardware inside on the memory DIMM.

If you can use a parallel port, say in Windows pre-NT or DOS, I guess
that you can come out with some I2C code in BASIC pretty quickly...

maybe the most "cheap and dirty" way.

Hi, Bob:-

It's not hard to whip up something with a plugboard and a PIC, but
have you considered the DV243002?

http://www.microchip.com/stellent/idcplg?IdcService=SS_GET_PAGE&nodeId=1406&dDocName=en010059

Mouser and others have it in stock (but not Digikey)

Same question here :-))
I suppose that Bob needs to program some I2C memories or so...

As nobody suggested it yet, how about buying a Willem EEPROM-board? It
will read and write to virtually anything:  http://tinyurl.com/3k3kek

Ah, so someone else has a use for those SMT EEPROMs too. I
keep a bag of old memory for parts (hey, a $'s a $ and they aren't
going in the bin without a fight)

I am forced to finish mine. Just got pulled off something else to finish it.

We've got a free kit for this. It is good for evaluating
the EEPROMs (including reliability). But for programming,
PICkit 2 is cheaper and more powerful. It suppoorts serial
EEPROMs (I2C, SPI and Microwire).

Win2k is supported. There is also a console version. But not
real DOS.

Back in 2000, we needed a few and I only have one Promate
II, so we made PonyProg (http://www.lancos.com/prog.html).
I am not so sure if there are DOS support.

You are a man after my own heart, Spehro. That's exactly what I need in
a hurry. There
were TWO left at mouser, and I got one.

Would you believe what I discovered about the USA? Except for Microchip,
not ONE
us vendor of I2C programmers costs less than $475USD...

I think I am in the wrong line of work....

You should read my email and get the official PICkit 2
instead. It saves you even more.

The SEEVAL32 kit will soon be replaced by a cheaper
USB version. We got this free because we designed
in several Microchip EERPOMs since Atmel obsoleted
quite some of the 5V EEPROMs.

Another thing about SEEVAL 32, it may not reliably
program some non-Microchip EEproms. We've
encountered this issue. Since there is no source
code for this, you can not fix it.

With PICkit 2, you have a chance to fix it since you
have access to the firmware and PC application source.

******

When I needed to programme a couple of serial EEPROMs I pulled the SEEPROM
off my old PICDEM2 board and fitted a socket. As well as the original demo
code there is a fair bit of I2C stuff on Microchip's site, app notes, code
examples and a web seminar.
Cheers
James
