The PICkit™ 2 Programmer/Debugger is a low-cost development tool with an easy to use interface for programming and debugging Microchip’s Flash families of microcontrollers. The full featured Windows programming interface supports baseline, mid-range, PIC18,8-bit, 16-bit, and 32-bit microcontrollers, and many Microchip Serial EEPROM products. With Microchip’s powerful MPLAB Integrated Development Environment (IDE) the PICkit 2 enables in circuit debugging on most PIC microcontrollers. In-Circuit-Debugging runs, halts and single steps the program while the PIC microcontroller is embedded in the application. When halted at a breakpoint, the file registers can be examined and modified.
1. This device will work like the normal pickit2.
2. This wll work for any pic (5 and 3.3V devices)
3. No mosfets no complex, only one voltage boost circuit.
4. you can program the target without PC.
The following packages include circuit and firmware.
Firmware is the software which going to be burn into programmer’s microcontroller, this firmware have code to enable the programmer to communicate with pc via usb and target microcontroller.
