Rated 4 out of 5 by from Before Purchasing this Kit I would suggest a web search for "pic projects" ( or simillar ) to get an idea of the versatility of the PIC controller. I usually "scratch build" ( buy the components seperatly, etch my own board etc.) but after buying this kit I Think I'm a convert. Quality pcb, tinned, and solder resist coated, printed component overlay. Clear instructions on build order along with tick boxes for each component. A delight to assemble. In use. The Kit does include a PIC controller and an example program so does allow for some initial experimentation & programming practice but you are likley to quickly outgrow the limitations of the "experimental" side of the board. but becasue of the ease of reprogramming the pic it may often be possible to write a simple routine to "test in principal" within the constrains of the board and given how few components are required to "bread board" a pic project a quick re program and full test on a bread board is not an excessive task. For those inclined to do so building a more functional "plug in" test board (plugging in to the relevant IC socket) would not be a daunting task. The Documentation suppled is somewhat limited but there is a wealth of info on the web including tutorials and many project ideas / complete projects. A visit to Microchips own site and a look at the Application notes section is also worth while. In summary the quality of the kit "5 star." As an "entry level" programmer/ test board, "could be better"

My laptop doesn't have a RS232 port. Will it work with a RS232 to HDMI converter?

Asked by: Anon
RS232 is a serial Data output, not a video output, as such a HDMI converter would not be suitable. However you may be able to convert to USB with the following adapter cable; http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/usb-to-serial-9-pin-male-adapter-zp43w

Did you know program transfer failures with pic16f876A can be fixed by running the .exe file in "real time" mode and using a single cpu. These settings are accessed in XP task manager and right clicking the exe

Many thanks for the feedback on this issue.

Many PCs, and it would seem nearly all modern laptops are being supplied without a serial port. Is it possible to use this programmer and the supplied software via a USB to serial port adaptor? - e.g. Your product codes A86AN or ZP43W.
Asked by: Anonymous
This is not compatible with USB to Serial Adaptors (as per Manufacturers details).

Can you confirm that the version of the programmer you are selling will actually program the 16F628A variant as well as the 16F628 device. Most other programmers cannot handle the 16F628A version.
