The PICkit 3 allows debugging and programming of PIC(R) and dsPIC(R) Flash microcontrollers using the powerful graphical user interface of the MPLAB Integrated Development Environment (IDE), and it does this all at a most affordable price point. It can program a large range of PIC chips, including the PIC10F, 12F, 16F, PIC18F, 24F/H, dsPIC and PIC32 (future) families. Additionally it is firmware upgradeable, and Microchip regularly releases new firmware to support new PIC chips.
Included in this package are the PICKit 3 Programmer/Debugger, PICkit 3 Programming Software(via download), the MPLAB X IDE Software(via download), and a A to mini-B USB cable.
A 44-pin demo board with a PIC18F45k20 microcontroller is also included. This board is not included with the standard PICKit 3.
Microchip part number DV164131. For details, see product page on Microchip’s site.
