The Microchip MPLAB PICkit 4 In-Circuit Debugger allows fast and easy debugging and programming of PIC and dsPIC flash microcontrollers, using the powerful graphical user interface of MPLAB X Integrated Development Environment (IDE). The MPLAB PICkit 4 programs faster than its predecessor with a powerful 32-bit 300MHz SAME70 MCU and comes ready to support PIC and dsPICMCU devices.

Along with a wider target voltage, the PICkit 4 supports advanced interfaces such as 4-wire JTAG and Serial Wire Debug with streaming Data Gateway, while being backward compatible for demo boards, headers and target systems using 2-wire JTAG and ICSP.

Key features of the PICkit 4 include matching silicon clocking speed, supplying up to 50Ma of power to the target, a minimal current consumption at less than 100µA from target, and an option to be self-powered from the target. 

The MPLAB PICkit 4 is connected to the design engineer's computer 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).

Currently, the MPLAB PICkit 4 In-Circuit Debugger/Programmer supports many but not all PIC MCUs and dsPIC DSCs, but is being continually upgraded to add support for new devices.
