Default PIC LOADER PCB Layout and Schematic Diagram

Hi all!

Our Robotics Instructor gave us a simple robot project and we will need to have a start with a PIC LOADER. I tried searching samples of its schematic diagram but just can't find one.

Might you can help me find a schematic diagram for PIC LOADER and a PCB layout, plus materials if any.

Thanks.

Google says http://www.kmitl.ac.th/~kswichit%20/.../picloader.htm and http://www.dontronics.com/rfarmer.html on the first page of hits.

I very strongly suggest you download the datasheet for the PIC you plan on using: http://www.microchip.com/stellent/id...GE&nodeId=2046

So can anyone help me find a schematic or pcb layout for PIC16F84 or PIC16F84A?

a PIC is a microcontroller.

You can get a datasheet for it that will indicate the function of each pin.
To use it, you must feed code into the PIC's ROM. The code is a set of instructions that the chip uses to set values of certain pins. It is simply a computer and a ROM bound together when you think about it.
