    I am looking into building circuits with microcontrollers for projects with dedicated chips. Right now I use Wytec's mini dragon freescale Mc9s12dg256b micro on a board that retails for roughly 100$. With it I program from freescales code warrior.

    I can't use these for the lower application because the price is higher and I don't want to use special pcbs to fit the micro.

    Does anyone know of a decently priced programmer for dip chips that freescales codewarrior will work on? As far as ability on the microcontrollers part, I would need adc, serial comm, pwm, and lcd screen capabilities.

    Any help would be great. Thanks in advanced.

    This is a real problem with small quantity designs, DIL chips are getting hard to find with some series of parts.

    Do they still make versions of the CPU you want in PLCC packages?

    They are a great compromise with high pin count parts, as the sockets fit a 0.1" grid and are very cheap (like $2 - $5 depending on pin count).

    Through-hole sockets are also available for some of the newer surface mount packages, but much more expensive.
