 RS232 Serial Port PIC Programmer


Model: FD-SPP

PIC Programmer is an essential tool if you wish to learn or build projects with Microchip PIC Micro Processors. 

This programmer is for those who do not have a Parallel Port on their PC. Programmer may be used with Free Windows Software such as "PIC PROGRAMMER Professional Serial" from Oshosoft and may work well with other serial programming software.

Programmer PCB is double sided PTH board measuring 6cm X 8cm. Since my idea was to make this programmer small in size with ICP capability with ICP header having PICKIT2 compatible pin connections, I have used a separate Programming Board containing IC sockets for 20 (Includes 8,14 & 20 pin PICs), 18, 28 & 40 pin PICs.

Firmware in PIC 16F628A controls TXD, RXD, Vdd & Vpp lines to program the Target Chip.  A true RS232 interface IC is used to connect programmer to PC's com port.

To use this Programmer, you will require a 14-20V DC or AC Power adaptor, A Programming Adaptor Board  and a serial cable. Programming Adaptor Board is included with this programmer.

If you wish to build this programmer using your own parts, you may buy a PCB for this project. 

PCB with Pre-programmed firmware in PIC 16F628A is also available for those who do not have a programmer.

If wish to build this programmer using PIC16F628A, 627, 627A or 628, you may request for a suitable firmware with 8, 10, 12, 16 or 20MHZ crystal frequency.

Free firmware for PIC16F628 & 628A is already supplied here for crystal frequencies of 8, 10, 12, 16 & 20MHZ.

Free Serial Port Prof Programming Software is suitable for programming, both PIC16F & PIC18F chips, using this programmer.
