'[AD] Announcing new USB PIC programmer'

The USBProg PIC programmer is finally in stock and available to order, see
http://www.embedinc.com/products.

This is a true professional quality PIC programmer that doesn't cut corners
on the USB or PIC interfaces.  It can produce the full range of specified
Vdd and Vpp voltages from any valid USB power voltage and deliver at least
100mA supply current to the target circuit.  It has a internal voltage
reference and does not rely on the USB power voltage.  Strong 150 ohm PGC
and PGD drivers can tolerate significant capacitance added by the target
circuit, while still remaining undamaged from shorts to 0-6 volts
indefinitely.

The USB interface provides "just works" operation.  Multiple USBProgs can be
connected to the same computer and distinguished by name.  Variable Vpp
allows direct support of PICs that require a lower programming voltage than
the old standard of 13V, such as the 18F2520 and many others.

This is the first USB PIC programmer that tries to "do it right".

I'm guessing that since you have host software....it doesnt work with MPLAB?

Right.

Just wondering how hard it is to get integrated into MPLAB. I hear that one
need to sign an NDA with Microchip and then can write the plug-ins for
MPLAB (which might require significant of work -- look at how long it takes
Microchip to get support of PICkit 2 integrated into MPLAB, still quite bad
after one year).

Olin, it might be worth your time. It looks like your USB programmer
will be a winner, especially since
you have overcome the USB 4.3V problem.

I've done the NDA and have the documents.  I was hoping all I'd have to do
is provide a DLL with specific entry points defined.  However it's all COM
based, which I currently know nothing about.  The plugin is also responsible
for implementing parts of the GUI.  The cost to entry is much higher than I
had expected, so I'm not sure when or if I'll ever get around to this.
Maybe if you know COM well it's not that hard, but they sure haven't tried
to make it easy for the little guy that can't have a full time COM/MFC GUI
programmer on staff.
