Since this circuit is design for the small outline package (SOP) PIC16F76, there is a need to simplify the process of updating firmware while developing. Current approach for developing is that the PIC must be removed from the circuit and place onto the programmer adapter. Such an approach is not suitable for small surface mount PIC device since it is very difficult to remove the PIC from the PCB.
In order to overcome this issue during development, in circuit serial programing approach is adopted for the surface mount version.
