Hello everyone. I thought I posted this but for some reason I can't find it!
I had a few questions about programming a PIC so I figure a new topic would be best in case anyone is searching for it.
OK, here's my questions:
I don't have alot of money. A homemade programmer is defintly the way to go, for a while with me. Can anyone recomend an easy to build circuit?
Here's a few random questions too:
What's an ICD2? What's EEPROM? Do I need either or? I beleive PICs have built in EEPROM, so why do some programming boards offer it?
What exactly is needed to program a PIC? I want to go the parallel port way, because my serial ports are being used.
One last question: How easy/hard is it to transfer serial data between a pic, and other hardware?
