Topic: PIC compatability with arduino uno (Read 884 times) previous topic - next topic


Hi, I was wondering if the arduino uno will take a PIC16C56-XT/P?  I had one lying around and was wondering if I can program it using the arduino uno board.

I've been waiting for someone to do a PIC programmer made from an Arduino.  There's no particular reason that this should be any more difficult for a modern PIC (with low-voltage programming) than the ArduinoISP for programming other AVRs.

However, the pic16C56 is NOT a "modern" PIC.  It needs the equivalent of high voltage parallel programming, and it's not even erasable (It's a "one-time programmable", unless it also has the transparent window for UV erasure.)  Unless you're really sure that it's blank, it's not useful for much beyond sculpture.
