'[PIC]: PIC16F877 Programmer question.'
2001\01\19@143517 by Bourdon, Bruce

I just finished building the PIC16F84 programmer described in Microchips
article AN589.

I am using code from:

- called IC-Prog (rev 1.03B).

I've tried to program two different families of devices (which it is
supposed to support) and had the following results:

Read Test:
Appears to read Pic16C71 ok.

Pic16f877 always reads 0x3f8c from program memory.

Program Test:
Pic16C71 remained blank - no bits changed.
Pic16f877 remained "blank" - still always reads 0x3f8c from program memory.

Note that electronics appear to be functionaing properly - looked over
breifly with o'scope. Program voltage about 12.7 (at MCLR pin), RB3
grounded, RB7 and RB6 look like valid data and clocks respectively, ...

I will try to verify what is being passed to and from the device in serial
stream later, also clock freq (looks about 40uS or 25khz) & delay periods.


-- hint: The PICList is archived three different
ways.  See for details.

Looks like it was software (programmer)...

Just tried "ProPic" from:
(with Microchips programmer design AN589).

And all works fine.
