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, 44-pin demo board
with a PIC18F45K20 microcontroller, PICkit 3 Programming Software, the MPLAB
IDE Software, an A to mini-B USB cable, lessons for programming PICmicro
MCUs, A FREE CCS and Hi-Tech Lite C compiler, and more.
