List of DIY Microchip PIC programmers projects:

 Here are some simple ways of programming a 16F84 (or 16C84) in-circuit. The TOPIC system is a very convenient way to learn about the Microchip PIC16C84 microcontroller. TOPIC is a combination of a small circuit board that connects to the printer port of an IBM compatible PC and a program to control the board. El Cheapo PICmicro Programmer Inchworm ICD2 from blueroomelectronics. Schematic is in the manual. Clone do Pickit2 da Microchip. PicBlaster PIC Programmer The SCHAER+ programmer is a programmer for PIC18 family from a PC parallel port (LPT). Wisp628 is an in-circuit programmer. The programmer is connected to a few pins of the target PICmicro, which is programmed while it remains in the circuit. RS232 Serial Port PIC Programmer This circuit is an alternative to the many parallel port PIC programmers that use the 7407 or 7405 type buffers.
