IC PROG Programmer Settings and programming PIC

IC Prog Prototype Programmer software




IC PROG Settings for PIC Programmer and programming PIC Using .HEX file

IC PROG Settings for JDM PIC Programmer

  • Download IC Prog Software
  • Start the IC Prog Software
  • Go Settings → Hardware (F3)

You need the following settings in IC Prog, (select JDM Programmer and Windows API)

IC Prog Programmer hardware menu settings

Note: If you have more ports you need to select correct com port.

  • When using NT, 2000, XP you need Installing Driver

Download the Windows NT/2000/XP Driver. Put the NT/2000 driver file (icprog.sys) in the same directory as the ICProg.exe file. In ICProg, click on ‘Settings’ in the main window and open the ‘Options’ window. Select the ‘Misc‘ tab. Click ‘Enable NT/2000/XP Driver‘. ICProg will then restart with the new driver and everything should be peachy.

  • When using Vista and Windows 7 you need to installing IC Prog 1.06.

Configure Ic-prog Smartcard tab

In ICProg, click on ‘Settings’ in the main window and open the ‘Options’ window. Select the ‘Smartcard‘ tab.

Example: You need the following settings when using PIC16F84 or PIC18F84A

Configure the serial port in Computer

Go to the Device Manager (Start→SettingsControl PanelDevice Manager)

Ports (Com & LPT)Double click on communications port (Com 1 or 2 ) Port
configuration tab

com port configuration tab settings for ic prog

Verify the following values:
Bits per second: 9600
Data bits: 8
Parity: None
Stop bits: 1
Flow control: none

Test the Programmer

  • connect the programmer to computer
  • Start the IC Prog software
  • do a preliminary check of the serial interface by selecting Settings → Hardware Check from the menu.  The following dialog box will come up:

IC Prog Hardware Check enable clock

  • Turn on “Enable Clock” by selecting the check box. This will allow the power and LED to be turned On or Off. If this does not work check LED and PIC Programmer Circuit.

Programming the microcontroller using IC Prog,

  • Select the device (microcontroller) to be programmed. (Settings→ Device)
  • Open the code file (hex file) to be written in the PIC.
    Oscillator and Configuration bits are changed as indicated by the *.hex file. We can
    maintain these values, or change them later if we have problems during the
    programming proccess.
  • Programming the microcontroller,
    press Program All button or F5.

IC Prog Program All button

During the programming, some messages will be shown:

  • Device writing confirmation (if enabled)
  • Programming code progress bar
  • Programming data progress bar
  • Programming configuration
  • Verifying code (if enabled)
  • Verifying data (if enabled)

IC-Prog will show the following dialog box if the verification is successful.

ic prog successfully verified message

PIC Programming is done. Now you can use this PIC IC for your circuit.

If the verification fails, don’t worry, no permanent damage is done.  There are two common verification failures – data and code.  A data verification failure can be safely ignored and just means that the EEPROM was not fully zeroed.  The message displayed will say “Verify failed at data address XXXXh”.  Note the word “data” in front of “address”.

ic prog Verify failed at data address XXXXh

If the message says “Verify failed at address XXXXh”, note that the word “data” is not in front of “address”, then the code verify failed and there is some sort of problem.

IC Prog Verify failed at address XXXXh message

Errors solutions:

General

  • Erase the PIC before writing it
  • Close all other applications running on the PC

Hardware

  • Check the cable connections and the number of the serial port
  • Check the model of PIC that we are programming
  • Check the PIC position on the socket
  • Check that all the pins are correctly inserted on the socket

Software

  • Check the type of PIC.
  • Check Menu → Settings → Type of hardware.
  • Check the number of serial port selected.
  • Check that the file code (*.hex) is correct. It’s no good writing a *.txt file in the
    PIC.

Other

  • Change the port
  • Use another PC
  • Try another programmer
  • Change the PIC

    can we program pic18F452 using this

  13. DAVE says:

    HELLO, I’VE A PROBLEM, RIGHT AT THE BEGINING THE OPTION com 1 DOESNT APPEARR, ALSO IN configure the serial port in computer, I TRIED (setting->device->…) WELL IT DIDNT WORK, I COULD USE A LITTLE HELP OF YOU IF THERE IS NOT A PROBLEM

  14. rahul upraity says:

    great…….working well

  15. soufiane says:

    hi, i used the pic 16f84a i folowed all the steps that you put on the page above, but when the programing end the message ”Verify failed at address 0000h” pmp up i folowed all the errors solution that you put check the pins change the pc etc… but still doesn’t work so please need your help

  16. adrian says:

    I have found on ic prog website somthing about “swap” or something vdd with RB4… for a 16f628 pic, anyone knows something about that?
    Thank you!

  19. Mark says:

    how can I know that my programmer is working properly?
    I can’t see the blinking led when clock is enabled, BUT!!
    when i press “PROGRAM ALL” , the “DEVICE SUCCESSFULLY VERIFIES” pop ups…does it mean it is working but only the LED’s are not?
    thanks!

  20. thilak says:

    I’m faced up to a difficulty, Suddenly my, icprog /JDM programer do not earse or program 16F676. This was fine before. Why ?

  21. Jack says:

    Oscillator and Configuration bits are changed as indicated by the *.hex file. We can
    maintain these values, or change them later if we have problems during the programming process.

    How is this accomplished. I have a 12f675 pic that has had the osccal value overwritten!

    halo…
    somebody can help me please to create program to IC…
    i wanna do an electonica tool to turn on and turn off lamp with voice sensor….
    i use a microphone condenser to arrive our voice and when mic condenser get our voice “turn on” so the lamp on,when mic condenser get voice “turn off” the lamp off,but if other voice no happen to lamp with status before…
    help me please

    HI

    I wanted to know if the 1.06c version of ICprog works on Windows 2010 and if i have to configure the soft like WIN2000…

    Thx
