PIC16C54 Programmer

This is a simple PIC16C54 programmer. I've tested it on a project board, and later built it on a simple PCB. The power supply can be any dc power supply capable of supplying at least 14-15V at current of about 200mA. My 12V wall adapter was unable to supply that (voltage dropped from about 15V to 9V) so in order to test I used batteries. For the PCB version I found an adapter supplying about 17V. The maximum voltage can be up to say 25V - 78L05 has absolute max voltage of 35V. Make sure the electrolytic capacior's voltage rating is more than the input voltage. The best way to check the required voltage is to check for 13V with a voltmeter (before plugging the progammer into PC and inserting a PIC). The resistor (and even capacitor) values are not critical, as well as the transistor types - any general purpose will do. You can even use buffer IC with open collector outputs instead of the npn switching transistors. I have used a 7805 on my pcb since 78L05 was getting very hot after a minute or so with my transformer (7805 also gets hot), but it was fine with batteries (?). NOTE: it is better to insert the PIC only when the software asks you to. NOTE: with currect version of software you have to include the Configuration Word in your asm file as __CONFIG.
