Introduction: How to Program a PIC 18F2550 or 18f4550 With Arduino UNO

here is our our first tutorial on Instructable so be indulgent. This tutorial shows the method of using an Arduino UNO board as a PIC microcontroller programmer. This method has been tested with PIC 18F2550 and 18f4550 but can be used to program the following pic:

  • 18F2420
  • 18F2455
  • 18F2520
  • 18F2550
  • 18F4420
  • 18F4455
  • 18F4520
  • 18F4550

The video is in french but sub in english.

That is the site of the author of the program that we use :

Hello how have I just seen your project and I wondered if it is possible to use it but for a pic 16f628a, given the little knowledge I have in programming pics, could help me to get the necessary code and circuit, I would greatly appreciate it.

Do you know if the PIC12F1571 will work with this too?
