programming in mind. It features a convenient 10-pin
header that can be connected to a target board. This
allows you to update a PIC's memory without removing the
device from the board. This speeds the development
process and allows you to program a surface mount
device that is soldered in place.
The programmer isn't limited to in-circuit operation. A
large selection of adapters is available for programming
individual PICs. The programmer is available with
accessories, including an adapter for 8-pin through 40-pin
DIP packages. Optional ZIF adapters support surface-mount and PLCC devices with up to 80 pins.
Windows software is included with the programmer. It
accepts standard Microchip format .HEX files that are
generated by MPLAB, C compilers, and BASIC compilers.
Command line options allow the programmer to be
controlled from a batch file or shortcut for production use.
The software is loaded with selectable options,
allowing you to customize your interaction with the
programmer. A detailed memory view shows you each
section of the memory in the PIC. The PIC's configuration
bits can be set with convenient dropdown selections. The
list of configuration settings is updated automatically when
you select a device, so the list you see is tailored to the PIC
you are programming.
The meLabs Serial Programmer with accessories
retails for $119.95. This includes the programmer board,
software, ZIF adapter for 8-pin through 40-pin PICs, AC
power adapter, and 9-pin serial cable.
