Sorry mate you buy the pre-programmed PIC18F2550 from Sisco. There is no way around that and please do support him, he is a very clever nice guy and it is only something like 7 Euros for the PIC. I can help with a working single sided PC Board layout in Eagle 4.16 Pro that is easy to make at home and works. I layed it out with the ZIF socket and programmer all on one board. This is by far the best programmer for the PIC, I2C & ATMEL and real easy to make at home. But speak to Sisco at winpic800@hotmail.com for the firmware.

Here you go, just remember to hit the ratsnest button, the board has a copper poor, and link the two 7 pin ZIF connections with wire links. Please give me feedback if you do make a board
 
Thanks

I total agree with SakCyb, It's well worth the money and it's the best programmer that i have used value for money if all all support Sisco he will keep updating it.
 
The best part i like about when new software version comes out it automaticly update your firmware in the pic very cool i say

and thaks for the file of the PCB i did mine in 2 PCB which suited my requirements (all nicely cased and labeled

SakCyb,
I written a request mail to Sisco, but i did not get any reply mail.
How can I contact to him for firmware chip ?
You are right, the programmer is nice and chip is not expensive.

Sisco will get back to you soon, may be in a day or two, he does not check his email every day on hotmail.com. But he will get back to you. He is one very kind Spanish dude. He had a lot of trouble getting the pre-programmed PIC's to me here in South Africa, had to send the IC's twice, the second time without any charge. And he was willing to help me until I got my programmer working 100%. We spent many hours chating about my problems on MSN messenger. But that contact he can share with you if he wants to. I could not get the boards available on the net working. That is why I routed my own board. I have now improved the layout slightly and will share it as well when I am completely happy with it and tested it. Then I want to do a SMT layout as well, but that will be just to see how small I can make it. Does anyone know where I can get ZIF sockets for SMT PIC IC's for this SMT version :confused:

Thanks for the file SakCyb

should we wait for your improved version or just make this board?
i just use a test clip like this for smd parts which I got at Digi-key

Thanks for the info. I know someone that works for 3M here in Johannesburg SA, so getting a test clip connector is no problem anymore for me. That is real good news.
 
I can see you are keen to make your programmer so here is the new layout. What I have changed is the two ZIF connections to just one, so now you do not need to bridge the 7 pins through anymore. The PCB layout is done besides for naming the pinouts on the connectors to make it easier to identify them. The schematic is one big mess but I do not think I am going to change that for now and I already have a working board (v1.3), so please you make this one (v1.4) and let me know if it works, it should because there was not a big change.
 
If you do not want the ZIF Connector and Programmer on one board just cut the board at the dotted line and make your own ZIF Connector board.
 
I hope I hear from you soon with happy news

SakCyb thank's for the new file.
do you know a diode I can use other than a bat 85 as they can't be found around here

Yeh I also had a problem with the BAT 85, it is Shottky diodes 30v 200mA. I replaced them with BAT 46 and I had no problems getting the board to work, hope you can find that. Any other Shottky with this spec will work, but if you really do not find any try 1N4148 or 1N914 swiching diodes, you may just get away with that. I am not very sure why Sisco used these diodes, probably just a spead thing.
 
Let me know if you still have a problem, I'll even mail you two BAT 46 doides if it must...

thank's buddy but i think i can find something that will work.I've looked for them before and never found any but i just searched digi-key's sight again using those specs and Bat 85 came up,piss me off because i just placed an order friday.
Anyways will stay intouch and let you know how she works,YOU LET ME KNOW IF YOU CAN'T GET 1 OF THOSE TEST CLIPS

Thanks for the post but just to be clear, this is the hex code for the PIC18F2550 for the older GTP-USB design, not the GTP-USB Plus from Sisco. Am I right?

well I contacted Sisco and it seems the price has tripled 22 euro's + 13 euro's for shipping which is over  $50 dollars to me,so it's not that cheap anymore especially when you still got to make a board.I can buy Microchip's Pickit2 plus demo board with cable and 2 cd's for $59.00 including shipping and it does everything I need so I guess this projects done for me.

I am very sad to hear this, guess I was one of the lucky ones. What can I say other than get the Pickit 2 Plus, it is your choice after all

I might still build the lite ver. just for love of tinkering Smiley I just can't spend $50 on a chip especially when I already have 6 blank ones sittng here.

The Lite ver should work on my Plus layout. I'll try it when I get a blank PIC18F2550 myself and give feedback, ok? Just don't expect it soon, getting blank PIC18F2550 here is a problem.



I am still very disappointed at the cost of the Plus version now, inflation must be real bad in Spain. It is still not that expensive for what it can do, but if I had to start with just a PIC, I'd think real hard about the odds. And I also have to admit I built the board 4X (all different layouts) before I got it to work, that is why I shared my layout, I just did not want anyone else to go through the same trouble. But now that it works I also have to say it is one hell of a programmer, big plusses are the speed of this baby and also the easily upgradeable firmware.

Yeah i was one of the lucky ones to it only costs me 6 euros too!
 
But now sisco only sell a pre-programmed pic chip now
 
but it's still worth it, If you build the older version it should still work with new software alls that be different is speed, still should support all the same pics but i have not tried it so not 100% sure I've still got my old one have to dig it out and try it

    Good man, so now you have your working USB programmer too, now only the time to do all those designs in your head still needs to be found. I have about two dozen half finish projects lying around here at home, all brilliant ideas…. but half done - Boys and their toys, my wife only shakes her head and does to bed with a boring love story paperback......
