    Default Using the PX1 as a pic programmer

    I have a PX1 and a SS24. The 24 came with 57.5 baud and I programmed the px1 to 115Kbaud. I have a pickit 2 to do the programming with but the SS24 doesn't have programming ports. Can I put the pics from the ss24 into the ic holder on the PX1 and program them then move them back?

    Yes. That is how it is done.

    Hmmm, never tried it, but it should work.

    Most of the MicroChip CPUs have programming pins in a standardized layout. You could use the PX1 as the socket. I personally prefer to use the ZIF socket since it does not have insertion and removal limits.

    My plan was to just use the PX1 as a socket. I do not have a ZIF handy.

    keep in mind there are a limited number of insertions a socket can handle before it stops making contact.
