This Sure Electronics Programmer is compatible with the Microchip® PICkit® 3 Programmer/Debugger. It is a simple low-cost in-circuit debugger that is controlled by a PC running MPLAB® IDE (v8.20 or greater) software on a Windows platform. The PICkit® 3 programmer/debugger is an integral part of the development engineer’s tool suite. The application usage can vary from software development to hardware integration.

This Programmer/Debugger is a debugger system used for hardware and software development of Microchip® PIC® microcontrollers (MCUs) and dsPIC® Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs) that are based on In-Circuit Serial Programming (ICSP) and Enhanced In-Circuit Serial Programming 2-wire serial interfaces.

The debugger system executes code like an actual device because it uses a device with built-in emulation circuitry, instead of a special debugger chip, for emulation. All available features of a given device are accessible interactively, and can be set and modified by the MPLAB® IDE interface.

  1. Review by Stuart - Good for Hex file loading verified purchaser

    As identified in the product description this clone works with MPLAB® IDE (v8.20 or greater). I have successfully used it with MPLAB® IDE v8.92 to upload Hex files to a PIC32MX150F128B. It is important to follow the sequence as identified by others, i.e.:
    (1) Start MPLAB
    (2) Configure -> Select Device
    (3) Configure -> Configuration Bits and check the box 'Configuration bits set in code'
    (4) Programmer -> "PICKIT 3", only then connect the PICKIT 3 to a USB port
    (5) File -> Import
    (6) Programmer -> Program
    There are YouTube videos of this device not working with MPLAB X so I would not recommend downloading this version. (Posted on 23/12/2014)
