All Modtronix PIC based boards can be programmed in circuit. They all have one of two types
of programming connectors, ICPC1 or ICPC2 (In Circuit Programming
Connector 1 and 2) - see Figure 1 and 2. Both of these connectors have
the same pinouts. The ICPC1 type is smaller, and used on boards that don't have enough space
for the larger ICPC2 type connector. The ICPC2 type connector is the preferred type, seeing that
it has a tab that ensures it is always plugged in the correct way. When connecting to the ICPC1 type connector, care must be taken
to align the connector correctly. Not doing this can damage the board and programmer!
All our programming adaptors for PIC programmers have connectors for both ICPC1 and ICPC2 connector types.
They all have a standard two part programming cable, consisting of a small PCB and an IDC
Cable - see Figure 3.
To program boards with a ICPC1 type programming connector, plug the connector on the small PCB
into the ICPC1 connector of the target board - see Figure 4.
To program boards with a ICPC2 type programming connector, remove the small PCB and plug the
cable directly into the ICPC2 connector - see Figure 5.
