USB Starter kit for Handheld PIC Programmer
Handheld PIC Programmer with USB PC interface and software. Load the PIC Handheld Programmer from a PC using the USB PC interface included and the simple loader software. Once loaded the programer is completely
standalone. You just plug it into your PIC microcontroller target boards and it programs/verifies Code and/or Data with a
single button press. Supports PIC16F and PIC18F microcontrollers, and powers target circuit at 3.3V or 5V.
It has 256KB memory so it supports the largest PIC microcontrollers.
The PC interface is USB port.

Hand Held PIC Programmer Options
Extra Hand Held PIC Programmers
. You only
need one starter kit for as many PIC Handheld programmers as you need. This starter kit works
with any of our PIC handheld programmers, including old LPT versions.
If you do not want to use the internal 9V PP3 battery, the power supply required is 9V with a 2.1mm barrel
connector, center positive. These are available on the Kanda shop or you can use other power supplies
with this specification.
9V International Power supply
for use with this PIC handheld programmer.
This is single handheld programmer to store one program.
See 8-Way Version
for programmer to store up to 8 programs.
