The Bus Pirate PIC programming adapter is back in stock at Seeed. It enables a Bus Pirate v3 (only!) to program PIC 12/16/18Fs that need a 13volt hit on MCLR to enter programming mode. You can program PIC 18FxxJ/24/30/33F without an adapter, and some experimental PIC32 support is also available in the forum. At this […]
The Bus Pirate PIC programming adapter is back in stock at Seeed. It’s still intended for developers only, and there isn’t any software support. We increased the price on this batch to the ‘normal’ $12. Get the adapter here.
The Bus Pirate PIC programming adapters we made for developers are already gone. Seeed Studio is working on a couple more, in case some potential developers missed out. We started with a cautious 20 units, just for developers. We expected 20 to last a long time, since it’s totally unsupported hardware. Now we’re wondering where […]
An experimental PIC programming adapter for the Bus Pirate is now available for $7 at Seeed Studio. This is unproven green label hardware. Only buy this if you want to contribute to PIC programming applications like piratePICprog. There is NO software support, and the final hardware will be slightly different. If you need this for […]
The new Bus Pirate PIC programmer has a wiki page with instructions and examples. The application is nearly complete, there’s just some tweaking required to get the memory settings right for each PIC family. If you’re interested in contributing, there’s a development section on the wiki with links to the source code and compiler.
piratePICprog programs PIC microcontrollers using the Bus Pirate. Newer PICs are programmed directly, like the 18F24J50 on the Logic Sniffer and the 24FJ64GA002 on the Bus Pirate. Older PICs, like the 12F/16F/18F require a 13volt supply to enter programming mode, an adapter will be ready soon. piratePICprog v0.2 is now available in the forum. It’s […]
PiratePICprog executable and source are available on the Bus Pirate Google Code page. PiratePICprog is a new application that uses the Bus Priate to program PIC microcontrollers. V1 only supports the PIC 18F24J50 in the Open Logic Sniffer, but is has 18F and 24F script modes for prototyping other chip protocols. It requires Microsoft’s .net […]
