Processor ports and power supply

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. In case of a power failure while the computer is on, it will restart automatically when power is restored.


All labeled I/O ports and the power connector are placed on the back side of the processor as shown above. In order to connect the Pickit processor to a power supply, use the provided IEC cable (C13).


In case the Pickit processor is positioned vertically and sideways, the air inlet shall not stay at the top. This may affect the ventilation process.
