    I would like to ask if this programmer circuit will work with MPLAB? Any problems I will likely encounter if I use this programmer circuit with MPLAB?

    By the way, I will use PIC16F873 as my microcontroller.

    Thank you for all you input![​IMG]

    Your programmer shows this under it's picture: " based on the"JDM Programmer."

    If you run MPLAB and then click on the programmer menu tab, it gives you a selection of programmer types that it can work with. A JDM serial type programmer is NOT in that list so it won't work with MPLAB.

    The most popular low cost PIC programmer these days that works with MPLAB seems to be the PICKIT2. There are many clone versions and many avalible as kits, so price is quite reasonable.
