Description: The mother of all programmers! A low cost alternative to PicStart+. It is MPLAB compatible and is fully recognized under MPLAB as a PicStart+ device. To operate it needs an external power supply of 12-15VAC or 16-18VDC. PIC-MCP includes a gold plated 40 pin ZIFF socket which accepts all types of DIP PIC microcontrollers.
