Amazon has many choices for PICkit 3 (and 2 and 4) programmers. Please advise which one to purchase, on Amazon or elsewhere. Or should I make an Arduino PIC programmer? Or would DMS be willing to buy one for our lab?
What specific chips should I buy and where? Can you recommend any on aliexpress.com?
If you know how to program and use PICs, please let me know if I can contact you for advice.
If I get the hang of this, are you interested in taking a class?
I own the books PIC Robotics, PIC Microcontroller Project Book, and Brilliant LED Projects (which uses PICs by page 14). I’m willing to share.
