Default PIC programming

Has anyone here programmed a PiC microcontroller?
Thanks Steve.

Thank you for the response.
I want to build the pre-amp in the AudioXPress Mag and have aquired the pic18lf452. I have no idea how to program the pic or what programming intails. Is programming difficult?
Do I need special tools.
Sorry I am totally new to this.
Thanks Steve.

The first thing you need to acquire is the *.hex file for the project. Once you have that file, you now need special hardware to program the PIC. I've built this one and it works. Alternatively you can buy one, I bought this one to do all my school projects and it makes life alot easier if you are planning on doing any real development. Next you need software so your PC can send the *.hex file to the programmer. The PIC Key programmer I linked to uses a program called IC Prog. It might be a little bit more trouble than it's worth just to program one PIC, a local university may have all the tools you'd need, or maybe you could order a pre-programmed PIC. Anyways, good luck...

ICprog is not bad but PonyProg is way better. The hardware for both is trivial and takes less than an hour to assemble.

I don't doubt this a bit, ICprog was a real PITA.

Thanks for the info. This pre-amp sounds as if it is more trouble than it is worth.
I do have a Vocational school close by.
The original publisher of this pre-amp has pics already programmed.
I thought that I could do the programming my self afther all this is DIY.

Well you certainly can It's usually about a saturday's worth of freetime to get up and running like you want to. I'll try my best to answer questions you might have, I'm sure other will be here to help also.

Thanks .
First I need to purchase the parts for the Pre-amp.
Then the story can continue and the fun can start. I just wanted to know if it was possable to do this or not.

I may be relying on your help so stick around and thank you very much.
