'[PIC]: Promate II adapters'
2001\07\31@010324 by Rob Symmans

Guys our production group have just purchased a Promate II programmer, we
purchased just one device adapter (the AC164012) to suit the DIP F877
devices. We were planning on using an inhouse made PLCC adapter for the
'F877s & 'F874s that we use currently on our Picstart +. It just has the 5
or so programming pins connected.

We were also hoping to use the same adapter to program some 16F84s.

We have tried programming some 'F874s in our adapter (plugged into
microchips dip adapter) with no success - the error message is "Code
Partially Protected".

We are not currently setting the code protection bit.

Has anyone any similar experience who may have some ideas on what may be
causing our problems.

- I learned from this list a while back that RB3 needs to be grounded
 when programming the F87x's via ICSP.  However, I've never had a
 problem programming the dip's directly in the AC164012 adapter.
 Perhaps the extra adapter you are using is enough of a difference
 that you will need to ground RB3 in this setup also.  Can't hurt to
 try.
- I've never gotten a "partially" protected error, but have gotten
 false "device code protected" errors.  It is almost always because
 of a bad connection somewhere - typically RB6 or RB7 are not
 actually connected.  As an illustration, if you do a chip read with
 the promate with nothing actually in the socket, the error you will
 get is a code protect error.

Rob,

microchip makes ICSP adaptor for promate 2 I do not
remember the part number but I use it all the time.
It has dip switches under nit to choose your processor.
it also has start button too after hex file loaded just
press the button it will program. I paid $350 for it
excellent unit. You can use what you made with it should
work fine.
