The first link in this is one of the best and simplest programmers Ive seen. Its very easy to make and can be done by anybody that can solder. Also, that it includes a tutorial to how to program with it is fabulous.

I think somebody should add this to the wiki. It will be very handy in the future.

Now, the million dollar question, Does anybody know of a tutorial and schematic like this to program the dsPIC chips?

The ready-to-use programmers are a little over $10 on FleaBay. Or you can buy an Arduino board, albeit with the need to make up your own cable. Or go the whole way with a Bus Pirate -- about $30.

bootloader

Great info everyone! I feel like the wheels are starting to roll again with my conversion. Does anyone have the hex code or whatever it's called for the bootloader? Am I writing that correctly?

Jake,

You can visit my website at Index of /firmware for a full archive of the current and all previous firmware. Current version is 1.11b. In the folder, there is another folder called hexfiles-m168, in this folder there is a file called coug-unified-16k.hex . This is the file for the atmega168 micro that contains the bootloader and the firmware running at 16khz output frequency. You just load this one file and your all set to go.

Hi,

I've been searching the wiki for the PCB layout files and it seems like the links that are there are broken:

Full archives from MCUDOGS inc schematics, pcb files and software:

Power board V1d altium files --mcudogs 15 Sep 2009 (EDT)
Controller board V2d altium files --mcudogs 15 Sep 2009 (EDT)


Is there an alternative location, or can someone attach the pdf's with the pcb layout?

Thanks.

Flores, are you trying to find out where to place the components? If so, I had that problem at first. In that case, you just use the alpha-numeric ID for each component on the BOM(component list, such as "C11") to match the component number on the PCB. Hope that is your issue.
