PICkit 3 In-Circuit Debugger
1, HID interface, say no more driver again.
2, Support windows 7 system.
The MPLAB Genuine PICkit 3 allows debugging and programming of PIC? and dsPIC? Flash microcontrollers at a most affordable price point using the powerful graphical user interface of the MPLAB Integrated Development Environment (IDE). The MPLAB PICkit 3 is connected to the design engineer’s PC using a full speed USB interface and can be connected to the target via an Microchip debug (RJ-11) connector (compatible with MPLAB ICD 2, MPLAB ICD 3 and MPLAB REAL ICE). The connector uses two device I/O pins and the reset line to implement in-circuit debugging and In-Circuit Serial Programming?.The PICkit 3 can now also reprogram any PIC microcontroller with a simple push of a button.

Some 8-, 14- and 18-pin devices use small header boards with a special MCU for debugging. This special MCU has extra pins for PICkit 3 communication and therefore allows the use of all pins on the part for the application. The header board is not used or needed for programming. However, when debugging these devices the header must be used. See the “Header Specification” document or see a list of current devices that use headers.
