Open hardware pogo-pin programmer

Tuesday, December 10th, 2013

Ethan Zonca of Protofusion writes: The PogoProg is a small open source hardware pogo pin programming solution. The PogoProg does not need a physical connector on the board, it uses surface-mount pads for signals and thru-holes for alignment. Two standard footprints are available, the smallest of which takes up very...

Bus Pirate PIC programmer v0.2

Thursday, August 5th, 2010

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...

Bus Pirate PIC 18F24J50 programmer update

Monday, May 24th, 2010

We've been working on a PIC 24F programmer for the Bus Pirate, now we're working on PIC18F24J50 support. PIC 24Fs and the 18F 'J' parts can be programmed directly by the Bus Pirate because they are 3.3volt chips that don't require a separate programming voltage. 18FJ support means the Bus...
