PICKitAutoWatch is a new application and a new approach to programming microcontrollers. PICKitAutoWatch supports both PICkit2 and PICkit3 programmers. The software is feature rich and easy to use via a simple user interface.
PICKitAutowatch is the best value for money products if you are simply programming your part as it supports the PICkit2 and PICkit3 programmers.
PICKitAutoWatch provides support for the latest generation of Microchip microcontrollers and EEPROMs, and fully supports the Microchip Programmers-on-Board the Microchip Xpress Boards.
The intent of PICKitAutoWatch is to enable operations with auto-detection and recovery of the program to maintain the programming activity.
PICKitAutoWatch supports nearly 1000 different types of microcontrollers, EEPROMS and the Microchip Programmers-on-Board the Microchip Xpress Boards..
- PIC10F, PIC12F, PIC16F, PIC18F, PIC24
- dsPIC30 and dsPIC33 family
- A wide range of EEPROMs
- MCP2502X/5X & HCSxx
- EEPROM 11LCxx, 24LCxx, 25LCxx and 93LCxx, M25Px and FL127x
- Microchip Xpress Boards.
- See here for the full list of supported parts
