- You can use this emulator controller to read or write program and data memory of the microcontroller.
PICkit3 Debugger Programmer
The pickit3 debugger programmer is an emulator controller devlopment board used to program and debug microcontrollers, as well as program EEPROM. PICkit is a family of programmers for PIC microcontrollers made by Microchip Technology. The Pickit 3 debugger uses powerful graphical user interface of the MPLAB to allow debugging and programming of microcontrollers and development boards.
What is the difference between PICkit 2 and PICkit 3 debugger programmers?
The Pickit 3 emulator programmer features a faster 16-bit PIC24F processor and a wider voltage regulation range which makes it more reliable than the Pickit 2. By integrating a multimeter to a Pickit3 programmer, you caliberate the ouput for or increased accuracy.
