PICkit 3 is a low cost In-Circuit Programmer/Debugger supporting a vast number of Microchip microcontrollers. It can be used for programming and debugging of PIC and dsPIC microcontrollers using in-circuit debugging logic and MPLAB IDE. MPLAB IDE offers powerful and convenient GUI.
PICkit 3 can be connected to the Computer of the engineer through USB connector allowing data transfer rate as high as 12MBPS. It has got pins to connect it with target microcontroller. In-circuit Programming and debugging is done using 2 I/O pins and the reset line.
