Description [Hide]

This item includes the melabs U2 Programmer Board in a plastic enclosure, documentation, and melabs Programmer CD.

The new and improved model of the popular melabs USB Programmer now offers even more features than before! More than 500 PIC microcontrollers are supported!  Support for future devices can be added via FLASH firmware updates. 

The U2 is powered by the USB port.  No additional external power adapter is needed!

Automated Programming:  The melabs Programmer Software can be controlled with command-line switches.  This allows you to automate repetitive programming processes for production or development.  You can even disable the graphic user interface (GUI) so that options and settings can't be changed accidentally.  This also makes it possible to perform multiple programming tasks from a batch file or custom application.

Software:  The programmer includes software for Windows 98/Me/NT/2000/XP/Vista/7.  This software allows you to control the programmer and set the configuration bits on the PIC.  The software may be run as a standalone application or launched from most program editor/IDE packages like MicroCode Studio.

The melabs programmer software is compatible with the standard Microchip HEX format files.  Any assembler or compiler for PICmicros can be used to create the program, including MPASM, "C", or PICBASIC PRO™.

The same software that controls the U2 Programmer can be used with all models of our programmers, including EPIC parallel port programmers and melabs Serial Programmer.  The software can even control multiple programmers on one computer.

The software allows you to set configuration bits on the PIC with an easy-to-use list of options.  Each configuration option is selectable in a drop-down list.  Configuration data may be read from a hex file or from a PIC.

The consolidated view-memory window lets you view each section of memory in the PIC with a click. 

A formidable list of options allow you to customize the way you interact with the software.  You control what areas of the device are erased, programmed, and verified.  Save mouse clicks with options like "Disable completion messages" and "Erase before programming".

The programmer's firmware can be upgraded electronically with the click of the mouse.  You don't have to worry about whether your hardware is compatible when purchasing a software upgrade.  Any required firmware changes will be included in the purchased upgrade.
