Hello - I am looking for a 16F873A bootloader that uses the built-in serial port (and ideally without WDT). Shane Tolmie's looks most promising to me but his site doesn't have a 20Mhz version. Apparently the 87xA versions use a slightly different algorithm for self-programming so I a

Guys need your help I have a cheap commercial PIC programmer based on the JMD design. It works fine, but I have subsequently found that it will not program 18F2550 PICs via ICSP, but will work fine when the PIC is placed in the sockets on the programmer. A friend therefore suggested that I use a bootloader which will make for rapid loading and testing of the development code I'm wor...

All the examples I've seen for ICSP use a MAX232, but the PICAXE 18X, which is a PIC16F88, has a simple two-resistor serial interface. Any reasons why I can't use the resistor interface for PIC ICSP? Mike

To those of you that are more experienced (than me); I've now started on a bootloader that will eventually transfer the 14KB program into the FLASH memory. I'm thinking of breaking the transfer up into 16 or 32 byte frames. Obviously when the program is finally in the memory every single b

I've successfully used a bootloader in combination with an FTDI 232BM USB chip for simple serial communication to the PC, but I have a few questions about how best to power it. The application in question is battery powered, so I want to conserve as much as possible. Can I power the PIC off the battery, and use the power rail coming from the USB port w
