EPIC Plus Parallel Port Programmer


The pocket-sized EPIC Plus Programmer quickly and easily programs most PICmicro microcontrollers, including the PIC16C55x, 6xx, 7xx, 84, 9xx, PIC16CE62x, PIC16Fxxx, PIC14Cxxx, PIC17C7xx, PIC18Cxxx, 18Fxxx, the 8-pin PIC12Cxxx, PIC12CExxx, PIC12Fxxx and the 14-pin 16C505 microcontrollers.

The programmer has a built-on 18-pin socket for programming 8-, 14- and 18-pin DIP-packaged PICmicro MCUs. 40/28 Pin ZIF Adapter or 8/18/20 Pin ZIF Adapters are also available, as well as surface mount and PLCC. (It will not program or read the PIC16C5x or 17C4x series.)
