'PIC Development Kit'
1997\02\24@063857 by Ralf Rudolph

Conrad Electronic, a german "home electronics" distributor, offers a Kit
called "PICSTART-PLUS" with the following features:

- Headline reads "PIC16/17CXX Development Kit" (are there others that are
important?)
- Support for all Microchip 8Bit PICs from 8 to 40 pin
- Including "EVAL-Software MP-LAB"
- Documentation for MP-LAB
- Microchip CD-ROM

The price is 399 DM (that«s around us$ 250). My question is, has anybody
heared of this system? Maybe someone uses it? Is it reliable, or in short:
Should I buy it?

I only need to program a PIC once in a while, so I am not willing to spend
too much money on it. On the other hand, I don«t want to waste _any_ money
buying garbage...

Thanks for any advice!

Ralf:

The Picstart Plus is manufactured and supported by Microchip
Technology; you'll probably be very happy with it unless you don't
have a Windows machine (Picstart Plus and MPLAB only run under
Windows).

MPLAB (and the Picstart Plus plug-in) can be downloaded at no charge
from Microchip's web site, so you should have no problems keeping
up-to-date with the latest versions.

The price is higher than what we pay here in the States, but I
suppose that's to be expected.

Hi Ralf!

Ich weiss nicht genau, was Conrad da verkauft, aber ich vermute, es
ist das selbe, was ich gerade benutze. Obwohl ich meine, dass meins
etwas weniger gekostet hat (aber ich muesste nachsehen).
Ich bin zufrieden mit dem Teil, funktioniert. Es gibt bei mir nur
ein kleines Software-Problem: Es scheint an der Kommunikation zwischen
der Windows-Software MP-LAB und dem Programmiergeraet zu hapern, ab
und zu passiert Unsinn, da wird z.b. ein geloeschter PIC als
beschrieben erkannt und so - aber das koennte evtl schon in neueren
Versionen von MP-LAB behoben sein.

Sorry for the last email in German, should have been a private reply.

OK, now that this happend, a translation:

Ralf Rudolph asked about experiences with PICSTART PLUS from Conrad
Electronics.

I don't know exactly what Conrad Electronics is shipping, but I guess
it is the same I use. I can recommend it, it works ok for me. I
think mine was bought for a smaller price, though.
There is only one minor software problem with the communication
between MP-LAB and the programmer, for example erased chips are
not recognized properly - but this may be fixed in current versions of
mp-lab!??

Ralf,
I have purchased PICstart Plus from Digi-Key in the United States for $199.00US.
I have been quite impressed with the value of the package.  To date I have
programmed only 16C84 chips.  As a novice PIC programmer I find the simulator
that is part of MPLAB (included in the bundle) to be a great time saver.
