    Hi,

    I recently bought a book where is discussed a project with the microcontroller dsPIC30F4011 from microchip, I decided to go with that project but I don't want to buy MPLAB ICD2, I want to know if there is any possibility to make my own programmer phisicaly, without buying any programmer/debugger, I want to know how microcontrolers are programmed.

    Thx

    The data sheet for the DSP IC should give all the parameters for programming the device.

    ok, the data sheet of the controler says how I can programm the controler, but how I transmit the data to microcontroler? wireles? that I want to ask, the method of programming the microcontrole, to burn it or how it says?

    In fact, MPLAB ICD2 is a programm or a hardware dispozitive? because I don't understand so well what is it.

    The ICD 2 unit is outdated/obsolete, and is replaced by ICD 3. ICD 3 is a unit used to program/debug flash based PIC MCUs. More about this unit here http://www.microchip.com/stellent/i...&nodeId=1406&dDocName=en537580&redirects=icd3
    You may search the net for software and programmer schematic for your chip. But well most of these programmers are a pain to use, and may not work at all. The cheapest way that work, is to get a PICKIT 2 programmer I guess
