Hi, A question on toolkit tk3 I would like to program the 16f886 or 18f2520 28pin pics at the moment they are not supported but if the relevant information is entered into the pic device type folder will it work. Any help appreciated.

Many thanks.

Ted.

Ted,

Can't comment on the 16F886 but I doubt very much that you will get an 18F2520 to work as they need different algorithms and control signals to program.
I tried and failed to program 18F2550's.

Some of the newer PIC's need less than the 12v programming voltage that the TK3 puts out as well. All these PIC's have gotten very complex to keep up with and program.

I would have said that it's time for a TK4 and new software, but I'm guessing with the hundreds of dirt cheap programmers on the market these days, it's probably not worth anybodies time to re-do everything.

Have a look at 'ICprog' it is freely available and the toolkit 3 board can be adapted to work with it. This allows a huge range of chips to be handled.
