11-25-2010, 12:33 AM
Is there anyone who has a PIC Programer in Illinois that they would allow me access to. I would be willing to meet at a mc Donald's or your house I just have one chip I need programed. I dont want to have to buy one just for the one time use. Thanks. I can do 2 way shipping as well but need it done asap. 2 way shipping I ship it to you and there is a label to mail it back to me in the box.

I know it sounds kind of crazy buying a programmer for one pic, but this won't be the only time you'll ever need it. Static electricity can jumble the PIC's memory and programming, voltage spikes, etc -- no different than how electrical things can cause problems with a computer.
I bought a programmer a couple years ago thinking I'd use it only a handful of times. Since then, I've used it several hundred. It's one of the best investments you can buy for this hobby. You can find them on eBay for not a lot more than it would cost to ship one back/forth.
But there are lots of DIYC members in Illinois -- especially around the Chicago area. It would be helpful if you put your location in your member profile so others could know whether they can respond.
All that said, I welcome you to DIYC -- this is an incredible place for sharing of information, techniques, equipment and what-have-you ---- anything related to Christmas lighting, and then some!

It's the renard 24 chip(s). 16f688 I think is what you guys are calling it. I guess there are 3 of them, I would like to use this with LED lights but I am unsure what firmware is correct if someone could spell it out for me I would be very appreciative.
