    Default PICkit plus

    Hello
    I got the Pickit + program and I should have ordered it a long time ago, it allows my old XP computer to use the new chips, it is fast and easy to use.
    Microchip should take a lesson from these people.

    Many thanks
    Gary

    Agreed. Pickit plus gives your Pickit new life. Tis is something Microchip should have done long time ago.

    Everyone. Thank you.

    This is great to hear.

    We are commencing the Linux beta program very soon, and, we add more capabilities to PICKitPlus to further remove the Microchip constraints in the application (s).

    Remember, you do not only need the PICKitPlus software to take advantage of the effort. We publish regular updates to the PICkit 2&3 parts database. You can still use our database with the old software... you just wont be able to access the new chips (as they use a different ICSP approach).

    Again, thank you.

    It's great to hear PicKitPlus development continues and I would defiantly have got it if I hadn't previously found NSDSP, using LVP this thing is so damn fast, sometimes I do a (redundant) verify just to make sure I hit programme.

    An insight - it an interesting point regarding speed.

    I made design decisions two years ago that I think that are, in retrospect, correct but it had the impact of performance of the PICKitPlus solution.

    The decision was: Not to change the firmware in the PK2 or the PK3 and to maintain the parts database to maintain backwards compatibility.

    I could have updated the firmware in the PK2 or the PK3 to program each byte/word (as appropriate) and then verify each byte/word. This would have had a massive improvement in performance but... new firmware would have needed to installed in the PK2 or the PK3 programmer. To ask for users to 'trust us' that the new firmware was ok was a risk to far. And, we would have also changed the parts database which would have further left the old PK2 or the PK3 community without updates to the parts database.

    So, PICKitPlus is not the fastest. But, keeping the users happy was the right decision.

    Sorry George. What do you mean?

    The firmware ? Our software? Something else.

    @Evan, I was referring to the way that mplabx and ipe change pk2/3 firmware at a whim (I guess there's some rule but I dumped IPE as soon as I could and mplabx sucks so hard it leaves me speechless) and your decision not to do that, even once. Have you considered as an option creating a version (PicKitPlusFast) that offers the speed savings you described?

    One of the advantages of Pickit Plus is that it is faster than the original software.

    Evan posted earlier that if he'd changed PK2/3 firmware (which he decided not to do) he could have made it even quicker.

    One advantage of PICkit Plus is that it is environmentally friendly. as it allows owners of PICkit 2 and 3 to keep their existing hardware and be able to program almost everything with it.
