USB Starter kit for 8-way Handheld PIC Programmer
The 8-way Hand Held PIC Programmer stores up to 8 different programs and PIC microcontroller types.
Select the correct program with the 8-way rotary switch and press the button, job done. It reduces mistakes
and means that a PC or laptop is not needed to program your PIC target.
This kit includes the USB adapter and software needed to load the programmer.
Starter Kit Software Features
- supports Windows 2000, XP, VISTA, Win7, Win8, Win10 - 32 and 64-bit versions
- Reads programmer and displays existing program names, file names and target PIC microcontrollers
- Loads Flash, EEPROM, Configuration words and User ID from HEX file
- Low or High Voltage programming modes can be selected

Handheld Programmer without Loader
Extra 8-way PIC Handheld Programmers
You only need one starter
kit to load lots of Handheld PIC programmers.
If you do not want to use the internal 9V PP3 battery, the power supply required is 9V with a 2.1mm Barrel
connector, centre positive, 250mA up. Any power supply that meets these specifications can be used, or they
are available on the shop.
9V International Power supply
for use with this PIC handheld programmer.
