Description: Replacement: None. We are no longer stocking these programmers. This page is for reference only.

The PIC-PG3B is a powerful programmer based on David Tait’s parallel port design. To operate it needs an external power supply of 12-15VAC or 16-18VDC. It supports all 8/18/28 and 40 pin PIC microcontrollers which allow serial programming. This programmer comes with an ICSP connector and cable can be used to program the P28B, P40B, and other prototype boards.

Dimensions: 75x58 mm (3x2.3")

Tutorial: How to setup the PG3B.

Customer Comments

  • I use a RadioShack #273-1631 power supply. It is sold as a replacement power supply for AT&T answering machines.
    It outputs 9-13VAC switchable and has the correct barrel connector for this PIC programmer.
