PICkit 4 programmer/debugger

The MPLAB® PICkit™ 4 In-Circuit Debugger/Programmer allows fast and easy debugging and programming of PIC® and dsPIC® flash microcontrollers, using the powerful graphical user interface of MPLAB X Integrated Development Environment (IDE), version 4.15. The MPLAB PICkit 4 is connected to the design engineer’s computer using a high-speed 2.0 USB interface and can be connected to the target via an 8-pin Single In-Line (SIL) connector. The connector uses two device I/O pins and the reset line to implement in-circuit debugging and In-Circuit Serial Programming™ (ICSP™). An additional micro SD card slot and the ability to be self-powered from the target means you can take your code with you and program on the go.

  • Matches silicon clocking speed
    -Programs as fast as the device will allow
  • Target voltage of 1.20V to 5.5V
    – Wide target voltage supports a variety of devices
  • Can supply up to 50mA of power to the target
    – Can be powered from the target to program in the field*
  • Minimal current consumption at <100µA from target
  • Portable USB-powered and RoHS-compliant
    – Powered by a high-speed USB 2.0, no external power required
    – CE and RoHS-compliant
  • 8-pin single in-line header Supports advanced interfaces such as 4-wire JTAG and Serial Wire Debug with streaming Data Gateway
  • Compatibility Backward compatible for demo boards, headers and target systems using 2-wire JTAG and ICSP
  • Option to be self-powered from the target (2.7V to 5.5V)
  • Programmer-to-Go (PTG) support* SD card slot to holds program data
    – Press on the logo to program the target
  • Cost effective Features and performance at a fraction of the cost of comparable debugger/programmers
  • Ease of maintenance and feature upgrade Add new device support and features by installing the latest version of MPLAB X IDE, which is available as a free download at http://www.microchip.com/mplab/mplab-x-ide* This functionality is coming soon with firmware update of the product through MPLAB X IDE.
