Everyone has a different requirement for PIC Microcontroller programming, from the basic development programmer or complete training kit, through field updates of PIC microcontrollers, to full scale production of thousands of circuit boards. The best solution for you depends on how you answer these simple questions:
- Have you ever used PIC microcontrollers before?
If not, we suggest a combined PIC Programmer and development kit
PIC Trainer including PIC board, Programmer and Debugger
- Do you want to program PIC microcontrollers in a socket, in small volume?
If so, the lowest cost solution is the
VP-590 48-pin Microchip Programmer
- Do you want to program PIC microcontrollers in a socket, in large volume?
The Xeltek range includes Universal programmers and Gang Programmers for all Microchip microcontrollers and other Microchip devices
- Do you want a PC based USB PIC ICSP, for In System Programming of
PRESTO supports all Microchip PIC microcontrollers, including dsPIC and PIC24 using ICSP. As a bonus it also programs serial EEPROMs and AVR microcontrollers and some other devices
PRESTO USB PIC Programmer
- Do you want to program PIC's without a PC?
For a PIC Programmer that doesn't use a PC, either for production or field updates, you need one of our standalone Keyfob, handheld or Portable units
Standalone PIC Programmers
- Do you want a unit that also programs other devices such as flash memory or more microcontrollers?
A wide range of USB Universal Programmers, with socket and ICSP programming can be viewed on our
USB Universal Programmer Page
- Which standalone Programmer do I need?
The PIC Keyfob is lower cost but is LPT port only, less robust and cannot power target, Handheld programmers are tougher, have USB loaders, with better device support including PIC18F K series and latest PIC16F and the Portable PIC Programmer is the most flexible.
PIC Standalone Programmer Range
- I want a standalone PIC Programmer that can store more than 1 program

If you haven't designed your PIC microcontroller circuit yet, then have a look at our recommended PIC Microcontroller ICSP interface. Microchip are a bit vague about the best design for ICSP (In System Programming) and tend to change their mind in different diagrams, so we have created a schematic that will work with all programmers.
