This Programmer/Debugger is no longer available.  Please visit the "Programmers and Debuggers" page for our latest programmer/debugger offerings.

The MPLAB® PICkit 4 In-Circuit Debugger/Programmer allows fast and easy debugging and programming of PIC® microcontrollers (MCUs) and dsPIC® Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs) Flash MCUs, using the powerful graphical user interface of MPLAB X Integrated Development Environment (IDE), starting with version 4.15. The MPLAB PICkit 4 is connected to your computer using a high-speed 2.0 USB interface and can be connected to the target via an 8-pin Single In-Line (SIL) connector.

The MPLAB PICkit 4 programs faster than its predecessor and comes ready to support PIC and dsPIC MCU devices. Along with a wider target voltage, the PICkit 4 supports advanced interfaces such as 4-wire JTAG and Serial Wire Debug with streaming Data Gateway, while being backward compatible for demo boards, headers, and target systems using 2-wire JTAG and ICSP™ programming capability.

The PICkit 4 also has a unique programmer-to-go function with the addition of a microSD card slot to hold project code and the ability to be powered by the target board. (Coming in future firmware release!)
