Have used 2 methods.
1. PICkit 2 Development Programmer/Debugger. See their
instructions in the program or website.
2. Serial port. I used HyperTerminal to read text from the
serial port & display on screen, but other programs can do that
too. Make sure the baud rate is 9600 bits / sec, just like in
the PIC code: #use rs232(baud=9600, xmit=PIN_C6, invert)
Serial Port Steps
(if using HyperTerminal)
1. Wire serial port pin
2 to pin TX (same as RC6) on the PIC.
2. Wire serial port pin 5 to ground.
3. Connect serial port to computer. Use a serial-USB adapter if
computer has no serial port.
4. Open HyperTerminal.
5. Enter any name, select the icon that says “MCI”
6. Connect using COM5/COM13/etc. If there are multiple COMs:
pull out the USB, reopen HyperTerminal, & see which COM has
vanished. That’s the one you want.
7. Set bits per second = 9600.
8. HyperTerminal is set up. It will keep reading input until you
close the program.
9. Load code onto PIC
10. Hit switch to turn on PIC
