MPLAB® PICkit™ 4 Sell Sheet Datasheet by Microchip Technology

Q MICFIDCHIP
Summary
The MPLAB® PICkit™ 4 In-Circuit Debugger/Programmer allows fast and easy debugging and
programming of PIC® Flash Microcontrollers (MCUs) and dsPIC®, Digital Signal Controllers
(DSCs) using the powerful graphical user interface of MPLAB X Integrated Development Envi-
ronment (IDE). The MPLAB PICkit 4 connects to your PC using a hi-speed 2.0 USB interface
and can be connected to the target via the 8-pin single in-line header. The connector uses
two device I/O pins and the reset line to implement in-circuit debugging and In-Circuit Serial
Programming™ capability. An additional micro SD card slot and the ability to be self-powered
from the target means you can take your code with you and program on the go.

The MPLAB PICkit 4 programs faster than its predecessor and comes ready to support PIC and dsPIC devices. Along with a
wider target voltage, the MPLAB PICkit 4 supports advanced interfaces such as 4-wire JTAG and Serial Wire Debug with stream-
ing Data Gateway, while being backward compatible for demo boards, headers and target systems using 2-wire JTAG and ICSP.
The MPLAB PICkit 4 has the performance you need to program and debug today's devices, while adding new features that
provide flexibility for the future.
