The PICkit™ 2 development programmer supports in-circuit debugging of selected PIC® microcontroller products. The upgrade is said to enable engineers to easily begin development and evaluation with PIC microcontrollers for a low initial investment. The kit features a 44-pin demo board populated with a PIC16F917 microcontroller, and connects to any personal computer via USB. The in-circuit debugging features include halt, single step and setting a breakpoint. Included are 12 easy-to-understand tutorials that allow users to learn at their own pace (source code provided), along with the company’s MPLAB® IDE integrated development environment and a host of other software, which are said to enable new users to easily enter the world of embedded control.
