    Don't do that. Don't make a programmer. You cannot make one cheaper then you can buy a complete assembled and tested programmer.

    Especially if you are just starting out in micro controllers building your own programmer is a path that leads to madness.

    A PICkit2 is $34.99 USD.

    Yes, it's a google search. You said you needed circuit and pcb. That google search shows circuits and pcb. :)

    ... and ? No one is going to do it for you. You have to do it yourself. With guidance from the forum. :)
    I've tried building my own programmers, with no luck. Do what ErnieM said. Buy one. Buy the PicKit3, or PicKit2. Or you can try to get one from this company.

    Good luck with your projects.:)

    Have you tried to google "PicKit clone circuit"?

    A lot of the simpler programmers that work on serial and parallel ports on the PC might not be able to program the newer PIC chips. If you're programming the 12Fxxx or 16Fxxx series PIC, I would recommend them without hesitation.

    One of them is here:

    http://www.qsl.net/dl4yhf/winpic/

    If you dont already owned a PIC programmer you wont be able to construct the USB pickit clone here:

    http://tomeko.net/pickit2.php?lang=en

    As you can see the USB programmer is using an 18F pic to program another pic.

    That's why most here suggested that you buy a ready made USB ICSP programmer. They are considered quite cheap and a good investment if you know what a PICKIT 2 or 3 can do. If you cannot afford the genuine one from microchip you can get a pickit clone from India or the one here which I am using now:
