Microchip’s PICkit2 In-Circuit Debugger/Programmer uses in-circuit debugging logic incorporated into each chip with Flash memory to provide a low-cost hardware debugger and programmer.
The PICkit 2 Starter Kit is a low-cost development kit with an easy to use interface for programming many of Microchip’s baseline, midrange and PIC18F families of Flash memory microcontrollers. This starter kit is designed to help the user get up to speed quickly using PIC microcontrollers.Easy to use Windows programming interface for programming many of Microchip’s Flash family of microcontrollers.
