I'm happy for you.

Were you just bragging that you found some nifty little tools?? Or did you mean to share some information??

I'd like to have one of those myself as I plan on playing with them.

If not, I think I can make one, not easy, but no choice really!

Cool chips too. 8 bit processor, 6 pins. incredible.

when i opened the sample packet after receiving the 10 series PIC's with a PICKit2,i dropped the pesky thing in the carpet,took me ages to find too! i thought about making up a LIF socket,but couldnt think of a way of RELIABLY holding the thing on the contacts, i planned to shave the top off a multi-way connector (the plasic'ribbon' sockets,used in scanners/printers)they where the only ones with the right pitch.all the commercial ZIF sockets are too big,and at over £70 a go too expensive for me.i got a secondhand promate production programmer off ebay,but cant afford the sockets for that,as theyre even dearer (like £100+!)so if it isnt 40 pin or 28 pinSM i cant 'production' program it.luckily this covers most of the chips which ARE quite cheap!

I thought about making one using those "pogo" pins they use in automated testing.

It'd take a bit of work, but....

"clamshell" programming adapters have long been available for 10F PICs. The problem is that they are expensive, and simple applications like "littlebits" have vanished.

My earlier posts give links to providers of these sockets.

it's arrived though the pinout on the bottom is odd,NOT DIL as i had hoped; but very fine 'TRI-PAD'so it will be awkward to mount on a board,unless i just drill clearance holes for the leads,and glue it down.the contacts are springy 'fingers' not pins,unfortunately it will be a while before i get to mess about with it as i am moving house soon...then it's a case of making up a double tri-pad to 'DIL legs'board THEN it will go in the PICStart socket! ADAPTAPHOBIA strikes again!

Hello hackinblack,

Am I missing the point or couldn't you have just bought one of these to plug straight into your PICSTART Plus?

correct i will now go and stand in the corner of the class facing the wall in shame...last time i looked at M'chips adaptors they where outrageously dear,this one is obviously the exception.that'll teach me to take my eye off the ball...
