The 8-bit PIC Multi-programmer (BL0080) can be used with various programming languages including Assembly, C and Flowcode. To program the PIC on the board, a free tool called mLoader is available.
The board will program a wide range of 18, 28 and 40 pin PIC microcontroller devices from the PIC16F and PIC18F series. The board presents all port pins collected together as E-blocks2 sockets and takes power from an external power supply or from the micro USB port.
A powerful 40 pin PIC16F18877 device is shipped with the multi-programmer.
New features in E-blocks2 include:
- Power now routed via the connector - no more flying leads
- Board auto ID functionality
- Flowcode automatic project set up
- Smaller footprint using up to date surface mount technology
- Over current resettable fuse protection
The E-blocks2 board is compatible with Ghost technology. Using the board with Flowcode allows the use of the advanced Ghost debugging features including in circuit debugging, real time pin monitoring and bus decoding.

If using this board with First Generation downstream E-blocks, then you will need an E-blocks2 upstream to E-blocks downstream connector.
