Microchip PIC Hand-Held 8-Way Programmer Starter Kit with 2MB US$189.00

Microchip PIC Hand-Held 8-Way Programmer Starter Kit with 2MB

Starter Kit: Hand-Held 8-Way Field and Production Programmer for Microchip PIC12F, PIC16F and PIC18F microcontrollers, plus USB PC interface and software.

The ultimate programming tool for PIC16F and PIC18F microcontrollers, in the field or on the production line so easy a child can use it! Just load it once with up to eight programs and then program target devices again and again.

You need just one starter kit for your PC, then you can load as many programmers as you require. This starter kit is compatible with both the 8-way programmers, which have 2MB of code space each, and the single-program 256kB versions.

Simply connect the starter kit dongle to your USB port and run the master software. Select your code file, device type and settings, and now you can load the programmer with your program or test code in seconds. As the programmer is battery powered during load, you don't need any power supplies or cabling; just plug a programmer into the lead supplied. Once a programmer is loaded, it is completely portable and can be used where you need it not where your PC is located. The 8-way programmer can store up to eight different programs for different PIC microcontroller targets, selectable using a dial on the front of the programmer.

The Handheld Programmer features one-button operation, auto sensing of target, auto verification and an error indicator. In most cases, the target circuit does not need to be powered, and low-voltage targets are supported. It can power the target circuit at 3.3V or 5V. The 8-way programmer has 2MB of memory and is powered by a common 9V PP3 battery, or by an external power supply. If your target circuit requires more than 150 mA current, it must be self-powered or the programmer must be powered by an external supply.

When it's time to program new code into your devices, simply reconnect the handheld programmer to the PC, load the new code into it, and you're ready to go again.

Hand-Held PIC Programmer Software Features

  • Supports Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7, both 32-bit and 64-bit
  • Simple software
  • Loads Flash, EEPROM, Configuration words and User ID from HEX file
  • Low or High Voltage programming
  • Select for Device ID match, configuration word verify, EEPROM Data save, and other features
  • Limit number of programs allowed, if required

Hand-Held PIC Programmer Starter Kit Contents

  • 8-way PIC Hand-Held Programmer
  • PC Interface (USB) for loading code and settings
  • Ribbon cables with 10-way connector
  • 6-way flying lead adapter
  • Software CD

Hand-Held PIC Programmer Features

  • PIC Hand-held programmer uses 9V PP3 battery or power supply
  • Single-button operation
  • Reload new programs as often as you need
  • Holds program code indefinitely
  • Low or High Voltage programming
  • 10-way DIL and 6 x 1-way flying lead connectors included

Free updates are available for new device support. This list is current as of 4 January 2013.

Extra Single-way PIC Hand-Held Programmers and 8-way PIC Hand-Held Programmers are available individually. You only need one starter kit for as many programmers as you require.

Power Supply

If you do not want to use the internal 9V PP3 battery, the power supply required is 9V with a 5.0/2.1mm Barrel connector. See below for optional universal power supplies that can be used in most countries.

Designing the Handheld Programmer into Your Product

To use a handheld programmer to configure your product in the field or on the production line, you need to have a 10-way box connector or just use the 6-way flying lead adapter.

The header has 0.1-inch (2.54mm) pin spacing. The GND pins marked with an asterisk (*) must be connected to target ground. Either or both of the other GND pins also must be connected to target ground. VDD must be connected to the target circuit's Vdd. The PGM pin is only used for LVP mode.

For more information, see the 8-way PIC Handheld Programmer Quick Start Guide.
