Re: 16F18877 & 16F15376

thank you ben for your reply, this will be quite annoying for me im guessing. do all the old eb boards work with the new programmer with the connectors you sell? or do I have to buy all new boards to go with it?

Re: writing and reading to an external eeprom

cheers,
it makes sense to me now. would having a mcp23008 on the i2c bus as well change anything, as they need to be addressed on the a0-a2 pins, i think that is what confused me that the eeprom does not get addressed in this way.
