pic18 pic24 pic32 code protect

Also please conform me that the VDD from PICKIT2 LITE SE is through transistor, will it provide the voltage only during programming or all the time to the target?

The PICkit2 can be forced to supply power to external circuit by MPLAB (which is automatically if no external power is detected) or by it's own programming software.

pic18f87j50 +pcb

Here is the screen cut for successfully programming 18F4550 under PICKit2 V2.40.
Power is supplied from the PICKit2 (BB0703 show on the top of the picture). No external power is used.

circuit schematic for pic18f2553

I saw some hex file under PICkit2 folder after MPLAB V8.0 got installed, any one knows what are those files for?

circuit schematic of pic18f2553

You would need the 3 transistor voltage clamp but could skip the VDD generator. Which PIC are you trying to program?

I'm trying out a mod for my Inchworm kit where I change the 300ohm output resistors to 2.4K to see if it'll work as a 3.3V ICD (still running itself at 5V) I'll post the results.

programing the pic18f46k20

Here is one of the post I saw on Microchip forum. Quite interesting,

Original link is here:
**broken link removed**

quote:

ORIGINAL: fanievwyk
I have a pickit2, but still prefer the ICD2. Both are fine - but check it out, the ICD2 can program the 32's ;)


PIC32 is not officially out. When it is out, I believe PICkit 2 can support it.

Why I say PICkit 2 is a better programmer than ICD2?
1) It can control Vdd/Vpp sequence, ICD2 can not.
2) PICkit 2 connector is easier to use than ICD2.
3) You do not need to download new OS firmware when you switch PICs.
4) ICD2 has some grounding issues (think ground).


These are something good to know.
However, I still love both of my ICD2 and Pickit2.:D

probleme programming pic18f2331 with winpic 800

Now you change the name of the topic:
"PICkit 2" DIYer's PCB board. to CB0703-PCB for "PICkit 2" DIY(Do It Yourself) fans

are you desperate for sell your ugly board?


You are lost, here is ebay: https://stores.ebay.com/[/b]

pickit 2 clone datasheet white zif socket

Hi, Just to share my experiment.
With EPIC (LPT) Prog running on 5V, I was able to program my target that running on 3V lithium battery. I added 100ohms resistor in series of clock, data and VPP. I also recommend to use diode at MCLR with pullup in order to stop VPP get in to your ckt but I did the test without diode, with success.
thanks

funnynypds' PICkit 2 clone looks fine, the layout is tight and I'm personally not a fan of soldering down tiny surface mount parts but there are people who don't mind.

I'm also not fond of the ICD2 RJ-12 type connector and neither is xiaofan according to a post on the Microchip forums
Why I say PICkit 2 is a better programmer than ICD2?
1) It can control Vdd/Vpp sequence, ICD2 can not.
2) PICkit 2 connector is easier to use than ICD2.
3) You do not need to download new OS firmware when you switch PICs.
4) ICD2 has some grounding issues (think ground).

I do like the 2x5 ICD connector like the one both my and many other PIC programmers use. The connectors work on breadboards and are cheap + robust.

pg164120 without low pin count demo

What a good couple-show here again.
One in red face, just like a mad dog.
One in white face, keep pretending to be an expert.
Are two of you going to mis-lead us, again?

What a show!
Are we blind?:(

pic18f25k20 as a slave

Hai guys,

I have just done a quick test with Blueroomelectronics stripped version of PICkit2.
simply supberb and working fine. Done a quick programing test with another PIC18F2550.

Firmware has been programed with ART2003 + WinPic800 (10 Min job including the programing hardware).

Used self made coil (680uh) on ferrite bed with 20 turns of 28swg wire.

Used breadboard for quick testing. Hai blueroomelectronics, Thanks man.

Started designing my own PCB in eagle. will upload soon with some pictures.:D

very good programmer compare to gtp usb plus

Added after 3 minutes:

can any one explain what is the use of AUX PIN?

Added after 32 minutes:

sorry..is not same person
i just don't understand what is the use of aux pin

* These devices require a header board to be able to debug the device. See the Header Board Specification (DS51292) for more information. This document is available in the “Downloads” section of the PICkit 2 web page.
NOTE: To connect PICkit 2 to a debug header board requires the AC164110 RJ-11 to ICSP Adapter.

+ These devices have an optional debug header which is currently NOT supported by PICkit 2.

2 Operating System Support List
This tool has been tested under the following operating systems:

Windows® 2000 SP4, Windows XP SP2, and Windows Vista™ (32-Bit)* OSs

* Only initial testing has been performed on 32-bit Vista for this release. 64-bit Vista is not supported at this time.

NOTE: Windows NT® and Windows 98/ME OSs are NOT supported.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Beginning with MPLAB IDE v7.51, MPLAB IDE and PICkit 2 will no longer be tested on Windows 98, Windows ME, or Windows NT® OSs. MPLAB IDE and PICkit 2 may continue to work under these operating systems, but their operation will no longer be verified through testing.

3 Reference Documents
The following documents may be found on our website or MPLAB IDE CD-ROM:

5 Known Problems
The following is a list of known problems. For more information on operation, please see the online help file for the PICkit 2 (hlpPICkit2.chm). Bolded prefix represents internal tracking numbers.

· To use the PICkit 2 as a debugger, two 4.7KW pull-down resistors are needed on pins ICSPDAT and ICSPCLK for units with a black pushbutton. Units with a red pushbutton have the pull-down resistors already internal to the unit.

PK2-10:
Output to Debug File - An error message is displayed when an attempt is made to use this option.

PK2-17:
When the Oscillator Config bits are set for "HS - hardware enabled 4x PLL", the first attempted ICSP communication after VDD is applied fails. Suggested work-arounds:

PICkit 2 Programmer Application

If powering from PICkit 2:

1) Check the VDD PICkit 2 "On" checkbox under the Microchip logo.

2) Select "Device Family > PIC18F" until the PIC18F8680 is detected.

3) It should now program properly as long as VDD is not interrupted



If powering externally:

1) Select "Device Family > PIC18F" until the PIC18F8680 is detected.

2) It should now program properly as long as VDD is not interrupted



PICkit 2 from MPLAB IDE

If powering from PICkit 2:

1) This only needs be done after first selecting PICkit 2 as the programmer, or after PICkit 2 is first connected to the target.

2) Select "Programmer > Verify" - it doesn't matter the results; this is just to the 8680 out of the problem state.

3) It should now program properly as long as VDD is not interrupted



If powering externally:

1) This only needs be done after first applying power and connecting PICkit 2 to the target board

2) Select "Programmer > Verify" - it doesn't matter the results; this is just to the 8680 out of the problem state.

3) It should now program properly as long as VDD is not interrupted

PK2-44:
Blank check fails at configuration memory location 0x300005 for PIC18FxxK20 devices even though device is blank.

PK2-46:
PICkit 2 may not enter debug mode when 32 KHz LP oscillator is selected as clock source for PIC16F505, PIC12F508, PIC12F509.

Hi, PICKIT2 LITE SE with 18F2553, the programming mode is working fine but when I try DEBUG mode from MPLAB it gives error

PK2Error0024: PICkit 2 was unable to establish a valid Vdd on the target (Attempted 5.00V - Read 0.00V)

Can any one help me to solve this?
Thanks
