New starter kit development programmer for PIC microcontrollers

10 August 2005 DSP, Micros & Memory

The PICkit 2 Starter Kit enables engineers, students and anyone with an interest, to easily begin development and experimentation with PIC microcontrollers, says the manufacturer, Microchip Technology. The PICkit 2 follows the company's successful PICkit 1, offering improved ease of use, faster programming and greater flexibility.

The PICkit 2 Starter Kit connects to any personal computer via full-speed USB 2.0, which allows firmware upgradeability, and requires no additional power supply for the programmer or target application board. The kit comes with a set of easy-to-understand tutorials that allow users to learn at their own pace. In addition, PICkit 2 can easily plug into development boards via in circuit serial programming (ICSP) technology.

The PICkit 2 Microcontroller Programmer (PG164120) comes with a USB cable. The PICkit 2 Starter Kit (DV164120) includes the programmer, USB cable, CDs and an 8/14/20-pin evaluation board. Initially, the programmer supports 33 different low pin count, Flash PIC microcontrollers.
