29-Jan-2005 Geoff Child Canada I have been using your trusty old DT001 for some time now with Bojan's software. I finnally started using some of the 18 series Pics and found it could not program a 18f1320( I noticed there was a * beside it also). Anyways I saw that software was no longer supported. Searching the internet I found this one and even better its free I thought you might want to post a link or something in case other people are using the 18f1320. Geoff
31-May-2004 Helmut F SCHIRETZ Space Tracking Industry Technician ACT Australia By the way Don, As well as MPASM and such programs as FPP, and PicProg877, I'm using OshinSofts Basic IDE & Simulator for PIC and their Oshin Pic Programmer. The Pic Programmer works well with your DT001 and DT106 set up for a 16F877, the only changes needed are to the hardware settings, Invert D2 Invert D3 Non-Invert D1, D0 and ACK

This development system is also a Programmer which will allow you to program a PICmicro flash device in a SimmStick target board in slot 1 of the board without moving the device. You then throw a Load/Run switch and have the Micro running. This makes it a Program and Go operation. You don't need a ZIF socket, you don't need to move the micro. In fact you can even hook it up to your own target board.Suitable SimmSticks are the DT101, DT111, and the DT106 for 18 ,28 and 40 pin flash devices such as the F84, and F87x. Check out pickaxe.html for Cheap component kits for DT001 and SimmStick. The DT001 is both a SimmStick Development platform and a PIC programmer. It is functionally equivalent to my old PIC84PGM Cheap Programmer board with the 10 pin header in my standard pinout for my Pigmy target board, 18 pin socket for direct on board programming, Dontronics 34 pin Relay Bus header, power supply, DB-9 and Max-232, plus provision for 8 Simm Socket slots at .3" centers, so these can be single or dual connectors. Slot 1 is switched via the Load/Run switch for in-circuit programming for the 84. Additional holes are provided for 30 pin sockets or pins at .15" centers so that in fact 15 boards could be installed, well if they all had low profile Surface Mount Devices. This has been done so that the user has the choice of socket placement. A 30 pin female right angle pin header will allow for simple connection to an extension of the SimmStickTM Bus to additional boards, so you don't have to design to the 30 pin SimmStickTM module connector layout. To hook up a vero matrix board, all you need is a right angle 30 pin male strip pin header. With a modular system, right angle and straight male and female pin headers, extension boards that allow boards to flip right or left, vertical, 27 degree and right angle simm sockets, you will find it could be much like a Rubick's Cube or Meccano set building block than a serious Single Chip Micro hardware platform. Perhaps we should solder mask modules in different colors. :) Final design is up to the individual's imagination. People keep asking the same questions: Will the DT001 burn a 508/509 chip? Yes. Will it work on fast Pentium computers? Yes. Will it burn micros other than the 84 type? Yes. Reverse Engineering, Inc. Mod Chip FAQ, if you are burning MOD chips. See Don's Download Dungeon for free drivers for the 84 using DOS, W9x, and NT. Third Party software is available to burn chips other than the 84. See below.

The P16PRO software has versions for DOS and Windows. This software will allow you to use most "David Tait" variant programmers including the DT001, to program a very large number of PICmicro devices via the Parallel Printer Port of a PC.
