'[PIC]: Pocket?'

I see that the links posted for the Pocket schematics are broken, and
have been since yesterday. Is it gone forever? How do I get one?

Hi all,

I finished most of the Pocket project on the weekend. I only have to
complete a small PDF file of the circuit, schematic and PCB and serial
cable details which I'll do tonight.

The complete project and source code should be available from my site
tomorrow.

If anyone wants to add to or modify the source, then no problems. It can
be quickly reprogrammed via a bootloader and is already setup for
ROMzap.

I'll probably get flamed by Olin for the code comments ;-) but if
something can't be understood, I'll gladly explain.


Now the sad part.

I did a rough costing of the parts and all up, a kit would cost around
$US85.00.

That includes a PCB, all parts (with 96K EEPROM), a 40 pin ZIF socket
and a 1M ICSP cable and plug.

Seperate PCB's will be about $US11.00

There are lots of surface mount parts in this project, but the PCB
patterns were enlarged slightly to make it easier to mount them. I
figure about 2 hours to build it, 15 minutes to calibrate the verify
voltages and a few minutes to learn how to use it.

Don't feel bad. Have you seen what Kanda charges for their keyfob
programmer? That one only does one code file per keyfob, is not
upgradeable, and cannot be made to support non-Atmel chips. Plus, you
don't get the fun of building it for yourself.

Say... if someone ever finishes that IDE/FAT code on a PIC contest,
maybe it would be interesting for someone - certainly not you, Mr.
Nixon, as you've done enough - to make a SmartMedia or Hard Drive
based unit? Can you imagine having 64MB of PIC HEX files in your
pocket? Would that be useless or what?

no, because then you could put in the assember and a editor and a keyboard

I don't think that $85 or even more is excessive to pay for a tool of this
usefulness...

I think a lot of people will want to buy just a PCB and maybe some uncommon
parts and try to fill in the rest from their own parts box.

Now, if we add in an interface to Dan Michael's Pocket Test Bench, we can
have a little, portable development and testing unit in the palm of our
hands.

I'd love to help maintain a library of code updates and modules for the
pocket, but honestly, I think sourceforge would be better with their CVS
support.

I've added a nice big link from the programmers page at piclist.com
http://www.piclist.com/techref/microchip/devprogs.htm

When will the PCBs be available?
