Supporting 8 pin, 14 pin, 18 pin, and 24 pin PIC microcontrollers, this board is quite versatile. Bearing the Velleman name, you know that only the best components and designs are used, so you are assured of its quality. It operates as a regular programmer, but also has on-board test functions using LEDs and pushbuttons. This makes experimenting and debugging faster and easier, reducing the need for constant chip swapping between programming and operational circuits. It includes a copy of PIC programming software, and can run on Win 95 / 98 / ME / NT / 2000 and XP. It operates through the serial interface for simplicity, and supports a huge array of microcontrollers. The list below is some, but not all of them:
PIC12F629, PIC12F675, PIC16C83, PIC16CR83, PIC16F83, PIC16C84, PIC16CR84,PIC16F84, PIC16F84A
PIC16F870, PIC16F871, PIC16F872, PIC16F873, PIC16F873A, PIC16F874, PIC16F874A, PIC16F876, PIC16F876A, PIC16F877(A)(ICSP only), PIC16F627, PIC16F627A, PIC16F628, PIC16F628A, PIC16F648A
PICF630, PIC16F676, PIC16F818, PIC16F819.
