Description

Microchip Technology MPLAB® PICkit™ 4 In-Circuit Debugger/Programmer allows for fast debugging and programming of PIC® and dsPIC® flash microcontrollers. The MPLAB PICkit uses the powerful MPLAB X Integrated Development Environment (IDE) graphical user interface. Connect the MPLAB PICkit 4 to a PC using a high-speed 2.0 USB interface and to the target via a Microchip debug (RJ-11) connector. The connector uses two device I/O pins and the reset line to implement in-circuit debugging and In-Circuit Serial Programming™. An additional micro SD card slot and the ability to be self-powered from the target means you can take and program your code on the go.

The MPLAB PICkit 4 can program faster than its predecessor and supports PIC® and dsPIC® MCU devices, along with a wider target voltage. The PICkit 4 supports advanced interfaces like 4-wire JTAG and Serial Wire Debug with streaming Data Gateway. The PICkit 4 is backward compatible for demo boards, headers and target systems using 2-wire JTAG and ICSP. The PICkit 4 also has a unique programmer-to-go function with the addition of a micro SD card slot to hold project code and the ability to be powered by the target board.
