    I have used Blueroomelectronics Inchworm (ICD2 emulator) and PicStart Plus (direct from Microchip). Both worked well. If you are using socketed chips, the PicStart Plus is easier. With both devices, you need a real RS232 port; although, just yesterday, I got them to work with a serial-to-USB cable (QVS or store brand made by QVS that used the Prolific chip set). Neither device worked with the serial port included on an ASUS P5QC motherboard.

    I programmed the 12F5xx and 12F6xx seies.
