Pickit processor 2.0
This article gives a description of an older version of the Pickit processor. It’s intended for users of Pickit 2.0 who have upgraded their Pickit software to a 3.0 version or later.
Refer to the documentation of the Pickit processor 3.0 to learn more about the current version of the Pickit processor, which is 75% lighter and more compact (almost half as large). The Pickit processsor 3.0 is also more rugged and less noisy.
The front side of the processor contains a lid, which can be opened by rotating the lock handle clockwise. A few ports (which are not used by Pickit) and some buttons are located under the lid.
