'[PIC] Wanted - Promate II programming modules'

Trying to keep the good old ProMate II in action but at the moment I'm limiting my new designs to chips it can actually support with the modules I've got (18 pin dip/soic).

I don't suppose anyone has retired their PM II and have any spare modules going for a reasonable rate ? Ideally I'd like to be able to program the 40 pin and 28 pin devices (SOIC and PDIP on the 28 pin).

I know that for the price of a new single module I could upgrade to the ICD2 but it seems a shame to waste a perfectly good PM II.

Thanks
Dom

Maybe you can buy the ICSP module for Promate II and it
will solve your porblems.

I could but at over $420 for the module it puts it a little out of my reach
at the moment (I'm in the UK). Having just spent $120 filling my modest car
up with fuel (>$10 gallon now) and finding out that out electricity/gas
prices have almost doubled in just over a year I'm trying to cut back on my
spending just so I can live .........

In that case, forget about the Promate II and buy the US$35
PICkit 2 so that you can buy more petrol. ;-)

Might well have to consider getting one when I place my next order with
Microchip - makes the shipping and handling charge more bearable.

Or my USBProg (http://www.embedinc.com/products/usbprog) at about half the
price of a ICD2.  It comes with a command line interface, so it can be fully
scripted.

I understand the feeling of not wanting to "waste" the PM II.  But all money
already spent is water under the bridge.  Look at where you are now, then
look for the most effective way to get where you want to be.

You might want to look into why your email is wrapped to oblivion when
viewed with OE.

In any case, I mentioned one of my products only because it seemed like it
could be good solution to what someone directly asked about.  I do also
occasionally announce new products or features on [AD].  As far as I am
aware, these actions are both within the letter and the spirit of what is
expected here.

It seemed to be a good fit in thread to me...
