Update 7/30/2016 --

There are many families of PIC microcontrollers, ranging from small PIC12 devices all the way up to the biggest PIC 32 chips. The characteristics vary wildly from one family to the next, so it is impossible to make a single bootloader that can work in all Microchip processor families.

For this reason, bootloaders for the SUMS System are sold for an individual processor group: those chips in a single processor family, that have the same amount of program memory, and one specific connectivity type.  A single SUMS bootloader will support one kind of connectivity. USB or Ethernet are the choices available at this time - others are being considered.  (For example, we have an experimental RS232 SUMS bootloader for PIC32MX processors having 512KB program memory -- call for details.) 

 Contact us for details on availability of new TCP based Ethernet bootloaders for reliable long distance upgrading over the public Internet.

At the time of this writing, our store can offer immediate access to the following SUMS Bootloaders, in both SUMS Starter Kit bundles and as standalone SUMS Add-On Bootloaders:
