Pinguino as programmer.

Pinguino as programmer.
Hello all,

I would like to know if someone already made a Pinguino program to program another PIC.

Say I have an universal Pinguino and made a new PCB with another PIC18F type. I like to program the new Chip with the Pinguino board as a programmer.

Maybe even program a PIC16 with an extra power source.

Best regards,

Yes, see the Pinguino Wiki at

Some time ago I found this blog entry of a guy who has build a pic programmer with an arduino.

And this guy uses the JTAG interface to burn a program on a PIC32MX with an arduino.

Maybe this links are interesting for someone.

I had seen the replicator. It is almost what I mean with my question.
What I like to do is not replication. At this moment I am using a programmer to burn a chip. It would be nice that all different types of chips could be burned. Arduino can be used as ISP in the Arduino program.

Hi Gerard,
I wrote 2 programs to use ICSP with any 8-bit Pinguino :
- one in python, running on your PC
- one pde, running on your Pinguino (the programmer)
It's not totally finished (at least the PC interface) but tell me if you are interested and we could go a step forward.
It is easier to complain than it is to do, but it is better to do than it is to complain.

Both are of interest if they'll do PIC32 - especially as there's a thread starting this on thebackshed but as yet no code.

Anything simple that works or is part way there would be good.

Hello Pingotg,

The mentioning above about the replicator is a good start. it has a routine that is reading from it own chip and copying to another chip.

If this can be turned around in a routine to read the hex and config from a sd-card it would be a great start.
