'Programming PIC16C73A with PIC84PGM programmer'
I'd like to program 16C73A devices with my PIC84PGM programmer (Don
McKenzie). I am planning on building up a 28-pin ZIF socket to connect to
the 10-pin header that is included on the PIC84PGM programmer. If I
understand correctly, I'll need to wire up the RB7, RB6, VCC, GND, and MCLR
pins from the 10-pin header to the appropriate positions on the 28-pin ZIF
I'd like to know what I should use to program the part. I've been using the
PICPROG programming software (Nigel Goodwin) with success to program 16C84
parts, but I assume this software won't work for EPROM parts since the
timing for programming will be different.
I looked at the PGM16CXX software (Ken Segler) and it looks like it will
program 16c73 parts, but I'm worried about the additional code protect bits
in the 16c73a part and wondering what this programmer will do with them
since it doesn't list the 16c73a part specifically.

No Nigel Goodwin's software will only do 84's, but very nicely.
I have spoken to Nigel recently about catering for the F84, however I
think all he really needs is a device to try.
Ken Segler's software last count, didn't cater for the two code protect
bits. I sent him Email about this a long time ago, but haven't heard
anything back. Still with us Ken?
Octavio Nogueira (TATO Computers) last time I looked, didn't support it
either, however I think he has some 'A' parts support. Perhaps he will
reply to this and update us.
Antti Lukats (SiStudio) doesn't support it yet in his PIP02 driver. Rest
assured I have prompted him about this and the F84 support.
I know that the 'A' parts are gradually replacing the old versions. I
can no longer get non-'A' PIC16C74/JW parts.
I wonder if the same thing will happen with the C84.
Sorry I couldn't give you anything positive on the Davit Tait type
programmer software upgrades. Perhaps someone else can. Maybe even David
As new devices come out, you can rest assured the saga will continue. :)
you will find the wiring of the header to the 28 pin socket.
Also the combination of my DT.001 board, (updated PIC84PGM) and a
PIC.003 SimmStick board will do this job for you.
