hi i have a 18F4520 that needs a bootloader on it so that i can use USB or RS232 to program it (the PIC) without a separate programmer chip. But, i dont have one of these programming kits...So can i use my basic stamp to either load a program (the hex file) or a bootloader on to my PIC?
PS i found this:
"On one level - yes you could. That is: you could add the tiny amount of
extra hardware needed to switch Vpp & Vdd and write a PBasic program to
read a hex file from your PC and burn that code into a PIC. In other
words, you could use a Stamp as the brains behind a PIC programmer."
but how? is what i thought after reading that.
