PICkit3 Programmer Debugger

PICkit™ 3 In-Circuit Debugger is Microchip's lowest-cost hardware debugger/programmer. Like the MPLAB® REAL ICE™ In-Circuit Emulator and MPLAB ICD 3, it can program and debug Microchip PIC® microcontrollers and dsPIC® digital signal controllers. Also, it works seamlessly with the MPLAB X IDE.

The PICkit 3 connects to a PC using a full-speed USB 2.0 interface and connects to the target using the same interface found on all Microchip Debugger/Programmers, an In-Circuit Serial Programming™ (ICSP™) programming capability interface.

The PICkit 3 In-Circuit-Debugger/Programmer is NOT a production programmer. It should be used for development purposes only.
