Portable PIC Programmer


The Portable PIC Programmer is a new more adaptable version of Kanda's long established PIC Hand Held Programmers. It builds on Kanda's keep it simple philosophy and so it is really easy to use, whilst allowing greater flexibility.

It has 32 program slots that are loaded from the PC with distinct target information, including different PIC microcontrollers, code and data, configuration bytes, programming voltage and slot title. Once loaded, it can be used anywhere. Just select the correct program slot using the keypad and display and press Program.


Operation

  1. Load from PC via USB using Kanda interface
  2. Take it with you
  3. On site, select correct target using LCD, keypad and scroll arrows
  4. Plug into target and press Program
  5. Check result on LCD
  6. That's it, job done - on to next job

Who is it for?

The Portable PIC Programmer is ideal for anyone who needs to quickly and easily update PIC microcontroller firmware in a variety of different equipment. This could be
  • Production technicians who need to customise products or deal with different product lines
  • Software developers who need to try various firmware versions on site
  • Service engineers who have to service a mixture of equipment
  • Maintenance engineers who need to update a range of machinery
In fact, it is ideal for any firmware update in situations where a laptop is too cumbersome or complicated for the job.

Loading the Portable PIC Programmer

Install the software from the CD supplied and plug in the USB interface included in the kit and the USB drivers will be installed automatically.
Connect the programmer to the USB interface and run the software to read the progammer contents. The contents of each slot is displayed in a list with its number, title, target PIC and filename. You can edit existing slots or add new slots up to the maximum of 32, but only 1 slot actually has to be loaded.

As well as setting target PIC microcontroller and files, each slot can have different programming method (LVP or HVP), 3.3V or 5V VCC and different options.
Click New or Edit Program button to load the programmer.
