PICkit 3 In-Circuit Debugger

PICkit 3 In-Circuit Debugger

  • Availability:
  • Product Code: PICKIT-3
  • Warranty Period: 12 months
This is the new PICkit 3 from Microchip. If you want an official programmer from Microchip, this is it! The PICkit 3 allows debugging and programming of PIC and dsPIC microcontrollers using the powerful graphical user interface of the MPLAB Integrated Development Environment (IDE) and the latest MPLAB X IDE too. The MPLAB PICkit 3 is connected to a PC using a full speed USB interface and can be connected to the target via standard Microchip 6-pin 0.1" inline header. The UIC-A will do the conversion from PICKIT 3 to UIC00B or even to ICD 2 standard connection. The connector uses two device I/O pins and the reset line to implement in-circuit debugging and In-Circuit Serial Programming. miniUSB cable included.

  • USB (Full speed 12 Mbits/s interface to host PC)
  • MPLAB IDE compatible (free copy included)
  • Built-in over-voltage/short circuit monitor
  • Firmware upgradeable from PC/web download
  • Fully enclosed
  • Supports low voltage to 2.0 volts (2.0v to 6.0v range)
  • Diagnostic LEDs (power, busy, error)
  • Read/write program and data memory of microcontroller
  • Erase of program memory space with verification
  • Freeze-peripherals at breakpoint


Packing List:

  • 1 x PICKit3

Which pic socket is usable that I can buy here on cytron? ( Reks, 30/05/2017 )
Hi, do you mean IC socket? If yes, you can refer to IC socket category. Thanks.
I have recent purchased a new PICkit 3 from you guys. I am using the latest version of MPLAB X running in Windows 8.1. SK1632 PIC Start-Up kit, PIC32MX250F128B-I/SP. While trying to load the boot loader into the startup-kit, it stated there connection failed. Please help, would greatly appreciate it. PS. The "Getting Started" part of the SK1632 user guide is not consistent with MPLAB X. Please advice how to properly burn the boot loader. Thank you. ( Thomas, 30/05/2015 )

Hi, thanks for the feedback, we are using the same settings (Win8.1 and MPLABX as shown in the User's Manual. Can you share more info such as error message or printscreen of the MPLAB X window? Please share in our technical forum.

Recently bought PICKit3 from Cytron. I am using MPLAB X, Windows 7. When debugging project, it comes up with connection failed for PICKit3 How to resolve this? ( Arumugam, 14/04/2015 )

Hi, please do printscreen the message and send it to our technical team at support@cytron.com.my, they will follow up with you.
