I am new to PIC. I have found the following circuit:
But the problem is that I don't have a similat USB to Serial Converter. I use the Arduino as the converter, on which I can't find the "RTS", "DTR" and "CTS". I only know about the Rx and Tx pins of the Arduino.
The Question : Can I use the Arduino's Rx and Tx to program the PIC Microcontroller (for the first time, i.e no bootloader, firmware etc installed).
