PIC USB Keyfob Mini-programmer Starter Kit

Single individual USB PIC keyfob mini-programmer with USB PC loader and software for In System Programming of PIC flash microcontrollers in PIC16F and PIC18F families. Ideal for field and production use. Each PIC programmer comes in a key fob case and has one button operation to eliminate operator errors. Removes the need for a PC on the production line or in the field. .

PIC Keyfob Operation

Just load using the USB dongle and software included. Once the PIC keyfob programmer is loaded, just keep plugging it into your target boards and program/verify Flash and EEPROM with a single button press.

As the PIC keyfob draws power from the target circuit, it operates at the target voltage, down to 3V. However, the BULK ERASE command on older PIC microcontrollers will not work below 4.5V. So, if your target voltage is below 4.5V locked devices cannot be re-programmed. Older PIC16F microcontrollers (not 16F1xxx) need at least 4.5V in all cases. We recommend the PIC Handheld programmer for low voltage applications as it can power the target.

In HVP mode, if the configuration bits are set for internal master clear and internal oscillator, the PIC device will start to execute code before entering the program mode because the MCLR pin will not hold it in reset. Also, if RB6 and/or RB7 are configured as outputs by the program there may be contention between these pins and the PIC programmer preventing the device from entering the program mode properly.

6 Way Adapter

10SIL6 adapter

This adapter has standard Microchip layout, MCLR, VCC, GND, DATA, CLOK, (LVP). If you require a different pin layout, see 10FLEX in accessories below.

The PIC keyfob is NOT designed to cope with faulty target boards, so you should test or isolate target boards first, or use the PIC handheld programmer instead.
