Connecting up a Pickit2/3 to a microcontroller

Post by bitfogav » Wed Jun 29, 2011 8:49 pm

Heres how to connect up some 10F, 12F and 16F series microchips, I will add some 18F series soon :)

Heres the links on the picture:

For other PIC Microcontrollers, refer to the datasheet to identify the correct pin connections:

See also PICkit 2 User’s Guide:

Some other notes, make sure that you have no components connected to the ICSPDAT and ICSPCLK Lines, has this can stop the pickit2/3 communicating to your microcontroller, especially if you are programming the microcontroller in circuit.

Thanks bifogav!

Any time you deviate from sequential consistency, you increase the complexity of the problem by orders of magnitude.

Thanks for this awesome tutorial, helped me a lot in my project.
You should also check The Engineering Projects because they have posted a lot of Arduino Projects and PIC Mirocontroller Projects and have also designed many new Proteus Tutorials and C# Tutorial. I hope you guys are gonna like them.

@theenggprojects

Glad you found it useful.. :)
If you don't know what Voltage your country is using, you shouldn't be doing electronics ;-)
