UBW kits include a programmed chip. has 8 and 32 bit versions as kits and ready to run.It still takes both you have to load the boot loader with a programmer like the pickit2
You may find some one that will sell you a chip with the boot loader on it.
I didn't think they still sold them I removed that post. I don't think using USB Bit Whacker as programming a Pic Lol see some else did all the work for you lol.
A PICkit2 is about $35.
I was reading on the UBW website and couldn't I use this UBW as a way to connect a serial programmer up to USB?
