-The download speed, USB connection stability than ICD2.
-The off-line programming functions. Development and debugging can be programmed to do product batch off-line programming.
-Power output, the internal voltage can be directly in the MPLAB IDE software control.
-PIKCIT3 has begun to support WIN7 system.
-Patch design, SMD reflow soldering processing, more stable and reliable product quality.
-USB (Full speed 12 Mbits/s interface to host PC)
-MPLAB IDE compatible (free copy included)
-Built-in over-voltage/short circuit monitor
-Firmware upgradeable from PC/web download
-Supports low voltage to 2.0V(2.0V - 6.0V)
-Diagnostic LEDs (power, busy, error)
-Read/write program and data memory of microcontroller
-Erase of program memory space with verification
-Freeze-peripherals at breakpoint
