Looking for a Cheap PIC Burner and PIC Info
« on: January 10, 2006, 11:20:46 AM »

Ok,
I think it's time I get out of the 80's and early 90's and start using PICs.
What I'm looking for is a low cost burner that will let me burn a pic with 32 outputs and a serial conection (RX TX for Rs 232), and a good place to learn about PICs. (website, books, etc.)

I've done a fair amount of assmbly programing and have worked with PAL chips, as well as you basic VB6 programing. But I have no  Idea where to start looking into pics.

Oh, I have used the Athena chips from Kronos Robotics (kinda like a PICAXe setup).

I know this is allot of Q's So I'm thanking you all in advance.

The only "cheap" pic programmer I found is those DIY circuits on Elektor and Everyday Practical Electronics magazines, never found any ready made cheap ones.

well, you can go the way most people and learn assembly, from here or you can get a free pic basic compiler and learn it here i personally used picbasic however it is not easily capable of the really advanced stuff. i would also suggest not using the 16f84 like the tutorials say, and using the 16f628 becasue it works pretty much the same and it is cheaper.
