'Quick and Dirty Programmer'
Thinking of getting into PICs. Anybody had any experiance with the
"Quick and Dirty PIC programmer"? Does it work, will it work on my 686
|This is not about the Quick and Dirty - it is about one that
I have a little experience with that is also easy on the
I have just gotten into the PIC biz also. I have started
with Peter Anderson's PIC programmer that you build on a
breadboard. You can buy the parts from him for as little as
$10 (I bought the $49 version which included the
instructions, wall-wart, cable, a solderless breadboard,
buffer chip, IDC connector, LEDs, power supply chips, two
16F84s with resonators, and wirewrap sockets for the chips).
It took about 30 minutes to assemble and it works for the
16F84 and most other PICs apparently - it worked the first
time for me and hasn't failed at all. Painless. He's at
http://www.phanderson.com. I was so impressed that I now have the
bug. I hate it when that happens.
On another list, I asked if I needed to upgrade to a better
programmer since I really think this is kewl and I plan on
damaging lots of material with my new found (in)ability.
The answers were drawn between buying PicStart + or staying
with what I have.
