USB Infrared Toy as a JTAG programmer

Posted on Friday, July 22nd, 2011 in Infrared toy, JTAG by Ian

electronicia4u used a USB Infrared Toy as a JTAG programmer:

After seeing circuit details I discovered it used some pic18F2550 as was almost compatible with  dangerousprotypes IR Infrared Toy (also they used same xtal frequency), so I downloaded firmware and programmed succesfully this device easily without modifiying firmware source code.

You can get IR Toy v2 for $22.05, including world wide shipping.
