Embed LProg Programmer for PIC MCUs


Buy Now

The LProg Programmer by Embed is a low-cost, lightweight programmer for 3.3V PIC MCUs only. These include the dsPIC33F DSC, PIC24H, PIC24F, and PIC18FJ MCU families. The LProg is USB powered and provides up to 100mA Vdd current to the target.

All signals are limited to 3.3V. The LProg cannot apply higher voltages that are required for other PIC MCUs, as those voltages damage 3.3V devices. The programming lines are available via labeled pads. An extra ground pad is provided for ease of making cables that prevent crosstalk and allow for long (several meters) programming cables.

  • Small size (2.3 x 1 x 0.6 inches)
  • Scriptable run-time software available
  • Host library available; create applications to read/write/verify device memory using the supplied API
  • Documentation and free software available from the vendor
  • Not currently supported in MPLAB X IDE
  • USB and programming cables NOT included

The RSLink2 converts between PIC UART signals and RS-232, required for communicating with a standard PC COM port. On the PIC side it connects to ground, power, and the UART receive and transmit lines. The RSLink2 supports power supply levels from 3.0 to 5.5 volts. The RS-232 interface is via a female DB-9 connector. It can be connected to a standard PC COM port with a straight through extension cable. Complete specifications are available from the vendor.
