Programming a PIC 12F510 using the DIY-150 programmer

A correspondent asked how to program a PIC 12F510 used in one of my projects using his DIY-150 programmer.

The DIY-150 programmer is quite an old design and there has been no development for more than 10 years, meaning no new chips added, though there are lots of online sellers of the now stale design.

The 12F510 is very similar to the 12F509 which microbrn v150807 does support. The 12F510 can be programmed by selecting chip type 12F509.

Alternatively, download the archive below and extract a modified chipdata.cid file which includes a 12F510, and extract it to replace the existing installed file.

The revised chipdata.cid can be downloaded here: chipdata.7z.
