    Question Recommendation and Other PIC Questions

    I have a few SS boards non-operational now. I want to load the diagnostics firmware to help trouble shoot.

    Q: When the diagnostics firmware is loaded can the board also run your show/display? Or can it only run the diagnostics?

    Q: Is the PICKit3 recommenced? Are there better, more functional programmers covering a wider range of PIC for example?

    Q: Where do you buy your programmers?

    Q1. Diagnostics only
    Q2. PICKit3 is a good choice
    Q3. Sparkfun

    I purchased 2 extra PICs and loaded the diagnostics on one and operational firmware on the other. Made field testing a lot easer. Be sure to label them.
