Programming PIC16F54 with Pickit2 in MPLAB

I would like to use MPLAB IDE 8.30 with Pickit2 to program PIC16F54. The firmware loaded in my Pickit2 does support that chip however MPLAB IDE shows a "red dot" (meaning not supported) by Pickit2 when I select PIC16F54 as device to be programmed. Is there any way to add support for this combination (Pickit2+PIC16F54) into MPLAB IDE?

It's a really old part not even supported by PK2 2.61, the 16F628A is a more than adequate (cheaper too) replacement.

It is a parallel programmed PIC, you need a PICStart+ to program those.

You will have to program the HEX using the PICkit 2 Programmer software.

Under the "Device Family" tab select Baseline, and then PIC16F54 from the Device drop-down list.

You're thinking of the 16C54 Bill, the 16F54 is a 'modern' EEPROM/FLASH version and is supported by the PICKit2 - it's under the Baseline series.

Look here: www.RoboHobby.com. PICkit 2 Development Programmer/Debugger - Small size USB device from Microchip. Which PIC devices it can program.

It a baseline chip you have to set manually I use some baseline chips mostly the 12f508
here this show you where it's at
