The PICKitPlus Programmer is based on the Microchip PICKit 2 design, and essentially works the same. In addition, it is fully supported by our range of PICKit software tools. It offers all the functionality you would expect from a PICKit2 program:
- Program, verify and read 10F, 12F, 16F, 18F, PIC32 microcontrollers
- Program, verify and read EEProms
- Serial terminal
- Logic analyser
The PICKitPlus Programmer does not support:
- PICKit-to-go mode
- Firmware update
We have two models: PICKitPlus andPICKitPlus PI4. The PICKitPlus is the standard model.
The PICKitPlus PI4 is a special variant programmer designed to work correctly on a Raspberry Pi 4. It operate 4% slower than the standard PICKitPlus model; but unlike the any PICKit2 or PICKIt3 the PICKitPlus programmer will function on a Pi 4. The Raspberry Pi 4 USB subsystem has a subtle flaw that causes PICKit2 or PICKIt3 programmer to "lock up" very frequently and need to be unplugged and replugged by hand. Previous models of Raspberry Pi and Raspberry 5 do not have this flaw. The PICkitPlus PI4 solves this problem, and as a bonus also works everywhere a PK2 would.
Both models are supplied fully-assembled.
