The PICKit 3 programmer/debugger is a simple, low-cost in-circuit debugger that is controlled by a PC running MPLAB X IDE running on the Windows platform. It can program or debug and perform Hardware and Software development of the PIC microcontrollers and dsPIC Digital Signal Controllers (DSPs) that are based on In-Circuit Serial Programming (ICSP). It programs the ICs using only two wires PGD and PGC apart from power pins. The debugger system executes code like an actual device because it uses a device with built-in emulation circuitry, instead of a special debugger chip, for emulation. All available features of a given device are accessible interactively and can be set and modified by the MPLAB IDE interface.
- Voltage 2V to 6V
- Used to program and debug PIC microcontrollers
- Easy to interface with PC via USB cable
- Has programmer to go feature where you can program without PC with 512KB of Flash memory
- Built-in Over Voltage and Short circuit Monitor
- On-board diagnostic LED’s for Power, Busy and Error
- Supports all latest version of PIC and IDE’s
To connect the PICKit 3 to your microcontroller if it supports ICSP, then look into their pinouts for Vpp, Vss, Vdd, ICSPDAT, and ICSPCLK pins. The pin number will vary from package to package. Once you find the pins, simply connect them to PicKit using jumper wires and program your controller using MPLAB X IDE from your PC. Always make sure that both the Controller and PicKit are power during this operation with an appropriate voltage.
Difference between Pickit 2 and PicKit 3
Pickit 2 is the predecessor of PicKit 3. Both do almost the same job, but Pickit 3 has some additional options and supports for the latest versions of PIC. Also, debugging will be a bit faster than Pickit 2. If you are a beginner, then even Pickit 2 would work fine. If you are looking for more advanced options like Logic analyzer built-in, then have a look at ICD3.
