Thanks for looking. I am wondering how to go about programming surface mounted chps. I am making a PCB and Id like it to be as small as possible. I may make many of these PCBs and will be using the surface mounted 14M2 and surface mounted 18M2. Im not sure how to go about programming these very small chips as I don't want to have any components on the board which may affect the end size. eg resistors, pins, etc used to program the chips.
Is there a way to pre-program the chips before mounting them onto the PCBs. ie is there a commercial chip programmer for this size of chip available. Or can someone explain a method of programming these small chips. I have only ever used the large r size chips in the past and so I am new to the surface mouthed world.
