Description: This PIC programmer, from Cana Kit, is a professional, compact USB PIC Programmer offering a 20-pin ZIF (Zero Insertion Force) socket for easy PIC programming. The PIC Programmer is 100% compatible with Microchip’s MPLAB IDE, and the PICkit 2 interface, and can program all popular PIC 5V microcontrollers including the PIC16F84A, PIC16F628, PIC18F458 and PIC16F877.
This PIC Programmer uses a USB port for power and connection to the computer, as opposed to the traditional serial port, eliminating the need for a separate power supply. The PIC Programmer offers In-circuit programming through a standard 6-pin ICSP connector as well as a built-in 20-pin ZIF socket for easy programming of any PIC of up to 20-pins right on the programmer. Higher pin count PICs can also be programmed, but through the ICSP connection header.
Standalone windows programming software, fully supported by Microchip, is available for download. The firmware of the USB PIC Programmer is also fully updatable as new devices are released and updates to the firmware can be easily downloaded via Microchip’s official website.

I bought this to flash the firmware back onto my GoGo Board 5.0 beta. Unfortunately it was not compatible with my MacBookPro. I was able to run it on another computer but also he to purchase an additional cord to connect the ICSP pins.
I am sure this works with many things, it just didn’t work for my needs at this time.
Sorry it didn’t quite fit your needs, but I’m glad you were able to run it on another system. I believe it’s fairly Windows-centric, which is more of a Microchip thing, although people have been able to run it on a Mac under Windows XP in VirtualBox.
