This is the PICkit 4, the official programmer from Microchip. The PICkit 4 allows debugging and programming of PIC®, dsPIC®, AVR, SAM and CEC flash microcontrollers and MPUs using the powerful graphical user interface of the MPLAB X Integrated Development Environment (IDE). The MPLAB PICkit 4 is connected to a PC using a high-speed 2.0 USB interface and can be connected to the target via an 8-pin Single In-Line (SIL) connector. The connector uses two device I/O pins and the reset line to implement in-circuit debugging and In-Circuit Serial Programming™ (ICSP™). 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. Comes with a USB to micro-B USB cable.
