Release notes V2.61.00 ----------------------------------------------------------------- New Features: ------------- > Programmer-To-Go updated to support 3rd party PICkit 2 workalike devices with more Programmer-To-Go memory. Bug Fixes: ------------- > PIC18F97J60 programming bug in device file v1.60 fixed > PIC24FJ programming problems introduced in software v2.60 fixed > Configuration Editor display issue in some Asian editions of Windows addressed. ----------------------------------------------------------------- Release notes V2.60.00 ----------------------------------------------------------------- New Features: ------------- > Low Voltage Programming mode support Low voltage programming mode (LVP) is now supported for all PICkit 2 supported devices which feature this option. Refer to the device datasheet and programming specification for information on the LVP programming mode. LVP programming mode is enabled by the menu "Tools > User LVP Program Entry" This can only be enabled in Manual Device Select mode. When enabled, the text "LVP" in red will appear above the Device select combo-box. For devices using the PGM pin in LVP mode, PICkit 2 ICSP connector pin 6 AUX must be connected to the device PGM pin. NOTE: LVP mode may only be used with devices that *already* have the LVP configuration bit enabled. Blank devices always have the LVP bit enabled. NOTE: For PIC24F--KA-- devices, this option becomes "Tools > Use High Voltage Program Entry" This mode MUST be used with PIC24F--KA-- devices that have the MCLR pin disabled (used as IO) or PICkit 2 will not be able to detect or program the device. NOTE: LVP may be used with PICkit 2 Programmer-To-Go. Enable "Tools > User LVP Program Entry" before starting the Programmer-To-Go wizard. > New Configuration Word Editor The editor dialog is opened by clicking on the "Configuration" text nest to the configuration word values in the main PICkit 2 display. The editor allows editing of the individual bits in the configuration words, but the user must reference the device datasheet for the meanings of each bit. The PICkit 2 software does not contain a database of the names of the configuration bitfields and the meaning of their values. > New menus Tools > Display Unimplemented Config Bits This menu allows the user to choose how unimplemented Configuration Word bits are displayed. In previous versions, unimplemented bits were always displayed as '0' value. This did not always match the way MPLAB IDE displayed these "don't care" bits. Options are to display as '0' (default), as '1', or as the value in the imported HEX file / as they were read from the device. > Faster PIC18F6xJxx, 8xJxx programming times > In Manual Device Select mode, PICkit 2 will now verify the Device ID of the target device matches that of the selected device. If no device ID is detected, an error is generated. If the Device ID of a different device is detected, the name of the matching device will be shown. NOTE: To turn this feature off, edit the pickit2.ini file and change the entry for DVER: to N. Ex DVER: N Bug Fixes: ------------- > Fixed some instances of the PICkit 2 software hanging on Reads, during Verify, or Blank Check with some chipsets. > When importing a hex file, PICkit 2 should no longer warn when unused configuration words (with no implemented bits) are not contained in the HEX file. The exceptions are some dsPIC30F words that contain reserved bits. The warning may be ignored for these cases. > Fixed an issue when programming PIC24FJ appplication code that self-modifies program memory. Such code should no longer cause Verify during a Write operation to fail. > Baseline and Midrange checksums should now be computed correctly when Code Protect (CP) is enabled. > Fixed an issue where the silicon revision was sometimes displayed with junk in the upper word of the value. NOTE: silicon revision display is enalbed byt adding the INI file value "REVS: Y" > Alert Sounds will now point to the correct location for the default sounds if the software is not installed in the default location. > Fixed an issue with the progress bar display during writes and verifies when using the PE with PIC24 and dsPIC33 devices. > Fixed an issue where "Tools > Use VPP First Program Entry" may not have had any effect in Manual Device Select mode. > Fixed an issue where the "Fail" alert sound was sometimes played when downloading a memory image to Programmer-To-Go even when the download was successful. > When Manual Device Select mode is active, the entire Programmer menu is no longer inaccessible when no device has been selected. This allows Manual Device Select mode to be exited without having to select a device first. ----------------------------------------------------------------- Release notes V2.55.02 ----------------------------------------------------------------- Bug Fixes: ------------- > Updates the PIC32 Programming Executive to v0109. The prior version caused problems programming some PIC32 devices. See below for additional updates in V2.55.xx ----------------------------------------------------------------- Release notes V2.55.01 ----------------------------------------------------------------- Bug Fixes: ------------- > Fixes a UART Tool update rate issue introduced in V2.55.00 See below for additional updates in V2.55.xx ----------------------------------------------------------------- Release notes V2.55.00 ----------------------------------------------------------------- New Features: ------------- > Faster PIC24 & dsPIC33 programming PICkit 2 now supports use of the Enhanced ICSP programming mode using the Programming Executive (PE) for these devices. In addition to faster programming times, use of the PE provides the following: PIC24H & dsPIC33F: - Includes the Device ID corruption errata workaround - Verify is done using a 16-bit CRC and is very quick - Blank Check is done in the PE and is very quick PIC24F: - Verify is still done by reading out the device and benefits from faster PE reads - Blank Check is still done by reading out the device and benefits from faster PE reads The PE is never used for devices with < 4096 instruction flash sizes. Use of the PE may be disabled with programming reverting to basic ICSP as used in previous releases as follows: PIC24H & dsPIC33: - Edit PICkit2.INI to set the following entry to 'N': PE33: N - To re-enable, edit the INI file and change the entry back to 'Y' - NOTE: Reverting to ICSP mode no longer protects against the Device ID corruption errata PIC24F: - Edit PICkit2.INI to set the following entry to 'N': PE24: N - To re-enable, edit the INI file and change the entry back to 'Y' NOTE: PICkit 2 Programmer-To-Go does not use the PE in this release, and still uses basic ICSP programming. > Import/Export of binary (*.bin) files for serial EEPROMs When a serial EEPROM device is selected as the current device, *.bin binary files may be imported and exported in addition to *.hex files. NOTE: A file MUST have the .bin extension to be imported or exported as a binary file. Any other extension will be treated as a hex format file > The UART Tool Hex mode allows direct typing In HEX mode, when the display is selected hex characters may be typed directly. When the first nibble is typed, it is shown below the display as "Type Hex : 0_" where '0' is the first nibble value. When a second nibble character is typed, the byte is transmitted. The first nibble may be cancelled by pressing ESC or typing any non-hex character. > New menu option "Programmer > Alert Sounds.." This option brings up a dialog to optionally select and enable playing of WAV sound files on success, warning, and/or error events in the status window. A default WAV sound for each is included with the installion in the "Sounds" subdirectory of the PICkit 2 program directory. Bug Fixes: ------------- > (Device file v1.53) Fixed an issue with PI32MX4xx device config masks not including USB configuration bits. > (Device file v1.53) PIC18F no longer reports verify errors or reads certain locations improperly when ETBR table read protect bits are asserted. > Fixed UART Tool issue where siginifcant amounts of received data without a newline (ASCII mode) or transmission pause (HEX mode) would cause sluggishness and lockups of the UART Tool software. > Unit ID maximum length set to 14 characters due to a firmware issue. > Tools > Troubleshoot... dialog 30kHZ waveform is closer to 30kHz and no longer has breaks in the waveform. This issue originated with the firmware v2.3x update. NOTE: The test waveform is only intended to check the edge rise and fall rates of the PGx signals. The waveform still contains significant jitter and is only approximately 30kHz in frequency. ----------------------------------------------------------------- Release notes V2.52.00 ----------------------------------------------------------------- New Features: ------------- > Menu option "Programmer > Clear Memory Buffers on Erase" allows the user to select whether or not the application device memory buffers (Program Memory, EEPROM Data, User IDs, and Configuration) are cleared to blank values or remain unchanged when an "Erase" operation is performed. In prior versions, the behavior has been to always clear the buffers on an "Erase." Bug Fixes: ------------- > Fixed a multiple PICkit 2 support critical issue that was causing simultaneous use of multiple PICkit 2 units to fail. This fix requires firmware version 2.32.00 for the PICkit 2 OS. > Fixed a dsPIC33/PIC24HJ Programmer-To-Go problem causing verify of devices to fail in Programmer-To-Go mode when Config 8 was not defined in the hex file. > Fixed an issue causing the application to crash when programming PIC32 devices with completely blank Boot Flash. ----------------------------------------------------------------- Release notes V2.51.00 ----------------------------------------------------------------- New Features: ------------- > Logic Tool dialog now allows the PICkit 2 VDD to be turned ON and OFF from the dialog via the "VDD On" checkbox. NOTE: the voltage value must still be set in the main form. > UART Tool dialog now allows the PICkit 2 VDD to be turned ON and OFF from the dialog via the "VDD" checkbox. NOTE: the voltage value must still be set in the main form. The VDD checkbox will be disabled when the UART Tool is "Connected" To change the VDD setting, the UART Tool must be "Disconnected" Bug Fixes: ------------- > Fix for Programmer-To-Go hanging on download for program sizes greater than half the maximum allowed. > Fix for PICkit 2 operational problems after exiting Programmer- To-Go mode. (Including reading junk data, failure to program, and odd VDD behavior). > Corrected UART Tool Custom Baud dialog size. > Reads of PIC32 devices now display "done" at completion. > Added 100ms delays to PIC32 Program Executive download to fix errors in some instances. ----------------------------------------------------------------- Release notes V2.50.02 ----------------------------------------------------------------- Bug Fixes: ------------- > Fix to try to prevent the problem of PICkit 2 windows "disappearing" by opening off screen. If a problem is still found (Pk2 shows up in taskbar, but no window is visible & it's not minimized) the best solution is to close the PICkit 2 application (right-click task bar icon and select "Close"), then delete the INI file. > Disables Tools > UART Tool and Tools > Logic Tool when no PICkit 2 unit is available > Addresses issues with multiple PICkit 2 unit support: - When the selected unit is in bootloader, no longer asks twice to select a unit. - Fix for a "Download Failed" issue when updating a unit with other units connected to the PC. - After updating a unit's OS, it will open the dialog asking the user to select a unit (if more than 1 are present). After the update reset, the unit may enumerate with a different USB ID. *** IMPORTANT NOTES WHEN USING MULTIPLE PICKIT 2 UNITS *** * * * 1) When updating a unit's OS, it is strongly recommended * * that it be the only unit connected. * * 2) Never connect more than 1 PICkit 2 with firmware OS * * earlier than v2.30.01.

ASCII view options are not available for PIC32 devices, and Fast Programming is always enabled. > Multiple PICkit 2 unit support on one PC Multiple PICkit 2 units may be used with multiple instances of the PICkit 2 Programmer application and with MPLAB. For example, one might be used in MPLAB as a debugger, a 2nd with the UART Tool, and a 3rd with the Logic Tool. When opening the PICkit 2 application or selecting "Tools > Check Communications" a dialog will open if multiple units are found. The dialog lists all connected PICkit 2 units and their assigned UnitID string, and is used to select a unit to use. Versions of MPLAB that are not aware of multiple units (v8.10 and earlier) will use the PICkit 2 unit listed in the dialog as Unit# = 0. > Multiple Window View option with resizable memory windows. New in v2.50.00 is the "View" menu, with two selectable view options: "Single Window" - this is the default window used by prior versions. "Multi-Window" - The PICkit 2 application window is divided up into 3 windows: Main Window - essentially, the top of the Single Window display. Program Memory - Program memory contents are displayed in a separate re-sizable window. EEPROM Data - separate resizable window with device EEPROM contents. The EEPROM Data window is only displayed for devices which have internal EEPROM memory. Both memory region windows may also be closed or minimized, reducing the screen footprint of the application to only the Main Window. Close memory windows may be opened by selecting them under the "View" menu. The "Associate / Memory Displays in Front" option associates the windows so they move, minimize, and come into focus together. It also shows memory displays always in front of the main window. If this option creates problems with a particular display, it can be unchecked to disable it. NOTE: If a multi-window display problem occurs, or a window is "lost", the defaults can be restored by deleting the PICkit2.INI file in the installation directory. > PICkit 2 Programmer-To-Go This new functionality allows a memory image to be downloaded to the PICkit 2 and programmed later without a PC. All PIC MCU families are supported with the exception of PIC32. See "Help > Programmer-To-Go User Guide" for more information. > Manual Device Select "Programmer > Manual Device Select" may used to select devices in all families from a drop-down box. This can be useful for importing HEX files to view when no device is present, and to download a memory image for Programmer-To-Go when a device is not avaiable to connect. > Logic Tool The Logic Tool, available under "Tools > Logic Tool" allows the PICkit 2 to be used to provide stimulus to and monitor signals in a target circuit. It also provides a 3-channel logic analyzer with complex trigger options. See "Help > Logic Tool User Guide" for more information. > UART Tool VDD When using the UART Tool, the PICkit 2 unit may supply VDD to the target circuit. The UART tool is now documented in the PICkit 2 User's Guide. > Memory display select & copy data The contents of the Program Memory display and EEPROM Data display may be selected and copied. Use the mouse with click and drag to select portions of the memory data. Right click and select "Select All" or press ctrl-A to select the entire memory contents. Right click and select "Copy" or press ctrl-C to copy the data to the clipboard. The selected addresses and data are copied to the clipboard as tab-delimited text. This works with both View options. > Display of HEX file Code / Data Protect settings When a hex file with Code Protect and/or Data Protect bits asserted in the Configuration bits is loaded, this is noted by displaying "Code/Data/All Protect" next to the Configuration Word(s) display. Similarly, the protect settings are noted for Configuration read from a device. Note that protection settings in an imported hex file or read from a device may not be turned off in the application. > MCP250xx CAN device programming support. See section 2 for specific part numbers. IMPORTANT: These devices are One- Time-Programmable (OTP) and CANNOT be reprogrammed. Also, the devices MUST be powered from PICkit 2 during programming. > PIC18 J-series programming change PICkit 2 v2.50 changes the way Configuration words are programmed to match the behavior of the MPLAB IDE. When programming, the upper nibble of configuration words is always set to hex "F". When erasing, unused configuration bits are masked off to "0". > PIC24FJ programming change PICkit 2 v2.50 changes the way Configuration words are programmed to match the behavior of the MPLAB IDE. When programming, the upper byte of configuration locations is always set to hex "FF". Unimplemented bits are shown as '1' in the Program Memory window. > PIC24HJ / dsPIC33FJ Programming change PICkit 2 v2.50 now always disables the JTAGEN configuration bit. > The PICkit 2 application window remembers its last location on the screen when closed and re-opened. > Warns if the hex file contains settings for some Configuration Words but not others. > Now displays 16-bit device revisions when REVS: is enabled in the INI file. > Preliminary Microsoft Windows Vista 64-bit OS support. Bug Fixes: ------------- > Fixed an issue where application could not open the Device File if it did not have write permissions in the application directory. > Fixed display issues with DPI settings other than 96 (Normal) > When the attached PICkit 2 is in Bootloader mode, the "Help > About" dialog now correctly reports the bootloader version. > Fixed an issue where the view mode was always reset to "Hex Only" > The "Write on PICkit Button" no longer programs endlessly when the button is held down. It programs once and waits for the button to be released. > Fixed issues with detection on PIC18 K-Series devices erasing or corrupting Midrange devices on startup or when selecting "Check Communication". > Fixed issue with 16F5x baseline hex import, which could cause configuration verify errors when programming. ----------------------------------------------------------------- Release notes V2.40.00 ----------------------------------------------------------------- New Features: ------------- > New menu option "Tools -> Use VPP First Program Entry" When selected, can allow PICkit 2 to connect to and program devices with configurations and code that intereferes with the ICSP signal pins. Symptoms that might require turning this option on include Writing a device and getting a 'Verification of configuration failed.' error, and not being able to connect to the device for further programming operations. NOTE that when this option is enabled, the target MUST be powered from the PICkit 2 VDD pin. It will not work with target-powered devices. > VDD set value retained across application sessions. When the PICkit 2 Programmer application is opened, the value in the VDD set box when the application was last closed will be restored. However, if a part is detected from a device family different than the family that was active when the application was last closed, the VDD box value will not be restored and it will be set to a default value. For example: When the application was closed: PIC18F family was active, VDD was set to 3.1V Then when restarted: If PIC18F device is detected - VDD is restored to 3.1V If no device detected - VDD is restored to 3.1V (Family is defaulted to last used) If Midrange PIC16F device detected - VDD defaults to 5.0V (any family besides last used (18F), VDD set default) > Calibrate Vdd & Set Unit ID This option under the "Tools" menu allows the PICkit 2 Vdd output voltage to be calibrated using a Volt Meter. This also increases the accuracy of detected voltages for powered targets. Frequently accuracies within 2% can be achieved. NOTE: Since the PICkit 2 voltages are referenced to the USB voltage, the calibration may not be valid if the PICkit 2 is moved to another USB port or host PC. NOTE: The PICkit 2 VDD output high end is still limited by the USB voltage and the D4 diode drop. The calibration is stored in the PICkit 2 unit, so a unit will remain calibrated when used with the MPLAB IDE. A Unit ID may also be assigned to a PICkit 2 unit. The PICkit 2 programmer application will identify the attached PICkit 2 unit with the ID in the application title bar. This can be useful in keeping track of and identifying multiple PICkit 2 units. NOTE: This menu option is not available if memory editing has been disabled with an "EDIT: N" entry in the INI file. See "Release notes V2.01.00" for more information. > OSCCAL instruction verification. For devices with an OSCCAL oscillator calibration value instruction in the last location of program memory, the PICkit 2 GUI will indicate if an invalid instruction value is detected in the Device Configuration display. During a WRITE or ERASE operation, if an invalid OSCCAL value is detected, the application will warn the user and give them the option to abort the operation or continue. > KEELOQ HCS part support. HCSxxx File -> Import HEx Notes: The first line only may be imported from SQTP *.NUM files generated by the KEELOQ tool in MPLAB. Connections for HCS devices --------------------------------------- PICkit 2 Pin HCS Device Pin (2) Vdd 8 (3) GND 5 (5) PGC /3 HCS20x, 320 \3 -or- 4 HCS30x, 36x (4) PGD 6 (1) VPP 2 HCS360, 361 only > Serial EEPROM support: 24LC I2C bus devices: Bus Speed- 400kHz with Tools -> Fast Programming checked 100kHz with Tools -> Fast Programming unchecked NOTE: Bus pullups are required for all programming operations. 400kHz requires 2k Ohm pullups.

Potential uses include: - Display debug text output from the microcontroller - Logging microcontroller data to a text file - Developing & debugging a serial UART interface - Sending commands to the microcontroller during development The PICkit 2 unit connects as follows: PICkit 2 Pin Target UART (1) VPP (2) Vdd Vdd (Vcc) (3) GND GND (4) PGD TX - inverted, logic level (5) PGC RX - inverted, logic level (6) AUX IMPORTANT CONNECTION NOTES: PICkit 2 cannot supply Vdd when using the UART Tool. The PICkit 2 Vdd pin MUST be connected to the target UART Vdd or it will not work. TX & RX signals are inverted (Start Bit = GND, Stop Bit = Vdd) at logic levels. The PICkit 2 CANNOT be connected to RS-232 +/- 12V signals. The UART Tool window may be resized (expanded) and the PICkit 2 BUSY LED acts as an activity light (for both RX & TX) Baud Rate: The baud rate is selectable from the dropdown box in the upper left corner. Common rates are included, however by selecting "Custom..." any baud rate from 150 to 38400 in 1 baud increments may be used. Connect/Disconnect: The baud rate can only be changed when Disconnect is selected. Data will only be received and trasmitted when Connect is selected. Mode : ASCII - Received bytes are displayed as ASCII characters. - Bytes are transmitted by typing on the keyboard, using the String Macros, or pasting text. - Transmitted data is not displayed unless "Echo On" is checked. - If "Append CR + LF" is checked, then when "Send" is clicked for a String Macro, an extra two bytes comprising of a Carriage Return (0x0D) and Line Feed (0x0A) are sent after the string data. - A New Line is displayed when both a Carriage Return and Line Feed are received. Individually, they will display as a box character. Mode : Hex - Received bytes are displayed as hex values preceded by "RX: " - Bytes are transmitted only by using the Hex Sequence boxes. Transmitted bytes are always displayed as hex values preceded by "TX: " String Macros / Hex Sequences: These text boxes allow strings of ASCII characters or hex bytes to be entered and sent all at once by clicking the "Send" button. They can also be used for frequently used string commands. In ASCII mode, each box has a limit of 60 characters. In Hex mode, each box has a limit of 48 bytes. Wrap Text: In either mode, determines whether text without a newline will wrap at the right edge of the display area, or be displayed on a single line with a horizontal scroll bar. The display will keep about 200 lines of received text in the buffer. Log to File: Allows received & transmitted data to be saved to a text file as it appears in the display area. Only data received and transmitted after the logfile is opened will be saved. Existing data in the display is not saved. While logging data, the button turns green. To stop logging data and close the file, click the button again. Clear Screen: Clears the display buffer. Does not affect log file. Exit UART Tool: Returns to the PICkit 2 Programmer interface. > New Operating System firmware v2.10. If you are using a version of MPLAB IDE prior to 7.62, it will want to reprogram the firmware to an earlier version. If you switch between applications frequently and want to prevent this, do the following - Copy the file: C:\Program Files\Microchip\PICkit 2 v2\PK2V021000.hex into: C:\Program Files\Microchip\MPLAB IDE\PICkit 2\ Thanks to Lanchon, xiaofan, and many other users & Microchip forum members for all their suggestions, comments, and feedback. ----------------------------------------------------------------- Release notes V2.30.00 ----------------------------------------------------------------- New Features: ------------- > File - Import Hex and File - Export Hex are now affected by the memory region checkboxes for parts with EEPROM data. During import, unchecked regions will not be imported and the existing memory buffer contents will be unchanged (unless a different part is detected.) During export, unchecked memory regions will not be included in the saved hex file. This allows only EEPROM data to be imported from a hex file, for example, or all data except EEPROM. On export, it allows creation of a hex file without EEPROM data, or with only EEPROM data. > For Vdd = 3.6V Max parts, now sets voltage to a nominal 3.3V. > New view format for Program Memory and EEPROM Data "Word ASCII" displays the same as"Hex+ASCII" in prior releases. ASCII characters are displayed in the same order bytes appear in the memory word. Ex: '694D 7263 636F 6968 iM rc co ih' "Byte ASCII" - new display format where ASCII characters are displayed in memory byte order with a space in between. This gives better readability to strings in memory. Ex: '694D 7263 636F 6968 M i c r o c h i' > Low Vdd programming of selected Midrange parts, all PIC18F, and most dsPIC30F parts. ----------------------------------------------------- |NOTE: Low Vdd programming WILL NOT WORK if any | |config code, data, or write protect bits are active! | ----------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------------- |NOTE: This is not the same as LVP programming, which | |uses the PGM pin for program mode entry. | ----------------------------------------------------- Previously, programming always used a Bulk Erase which required a minimum Vdd of 4.5V for Midrange parts, many PIC18F parts, and dsPIC30F parts. Midrange: Some Midrange parts support a flash row erase process at below 4.5V. These devices are now supported for programming at Vdd < 4.5V using the row erase. See the device support list for supported parts. PIC18F: All PIC18F parts now program down to 3.0V. Some will program at lower voltages; the user will be warned if the voltage is too low. dsPIC30F: Most dSPIC10F devices now program down to 3.0V. The exceptions are the dsPIC30F5011 and dsPIC30F5013. ----------------------------------------------------- |NOTE: The [ERASE] button/menu still uses Bulk Erase | |only. | ----------------------------------------------------- Therefore, [ERASE] cannot be used at voltages below the Bulk Erase minimum Vdd. Parts that support the low Vdd programming can be left erased by following these steps: 1) Connect to the device 2) Select menu Device Family -> {family of device in use} This clears all buffers to the erased state 3) Click [WRITE] 4) The device is now in a completely erased state. (NOTE this will not work if any protect bits are set) Bug Fixes: ---------- > Fixed issue with PIC18F config bit WRTC preventing the programming of CONFIG7. > Fixed issue with EEPROM read. When PICkit 2 was started with no device attached, then a device was attached and the first operation was a read, EEPROM Data memory would not be read. Now corrected. Firmware Update: ---------------- > This version requires firmware v2.02.00. MPLAB IDE version 7.60 and prior will detect the new version and ask to download v2.01. However, it is safe to use v2.02 with these MPLAB IDE releases. ----------------------------------------------------------------- Release notes V2.20.04 ----------------------------------------------------------------- Bug Fixes: ---------- > Fixed handle issue causing crashes with Program On PICkit Button ----------------------------------------------------------------- Release notes V2.20.00 ----------------------------------------------------------------- New Features: ------------- > dsPIC30 support > PIC18LF_J_ support: NOTE: If these devices do not have VDDCORE being supplied by an external regulator from the general VDD (that is able to handle 3.6 Volts), but VDDCORE is powered directly from the PICkit 2 VDD output, the following precautionary steps must be taken. These prevent a potentially damaging overvoltage on VDDCORE: Step 1 - Do not connect the target device to the PICkit 2 unit when opening the programming application. Step 2 - After the application is opened, select Menu "Device Family > PIC18F_J_" (if this is not the current family) Step 3 - Change the "VDD PICkit 2" voltage box to between 2.5 and 2.7 Volts Step 4 - Connect the target device to the PICkit 2 unit. Step 5 - Detect the device by either trying a programming operation (such as Read) or again selecting menu "Device Family > PIC18F_J_" Bug Fixes: ---------- > Fix issue with with Erase voltage warning dialog and Auto- Import-Write that was causing an exception. ----------------------------------------------------------------- Release notes V2.11.00 ----------------------------------------------------------------- New Features: ------------- > Imports/exports new MPLAB PIC24HJ and dsPIC33 HEX file format Bug Fixes: ---------- > Baseline & Midrange hex files imported with Code Protect config bit asserted now display correct checksum > PIC18F hex files imported with add Code Protect config bits asserted now display correct checksum NOTE: PIC18F hex fies imported with only some (not all) CP bits will display a checksum not matching MPLAB > Code Protect masks for PIC24HJ and dsPIC33 parts updated ----------------------------------------------------------------- Release notes V2.10.01 ----------------------------------------------------------------- New Features: ------------- > 44-Pin Demo Board User's Guide included with installation and linked to under "Help" menu. > 'Tools > Write on PICkit Button' state now saved in INI file. > If an Auto-Import-Write fails,the button is now left enabled to more easily retry. Bug Fixes: ---------- > Auto-Import-Write function no longer locks up if VDD is set to "Force Target" and no target power is present. Also, when set to "Auto-Detect", popup dialogs indicating new power mode are suppressed. ----------------------------------------------------------------- Release notes V2.10.00 ----------------------------------------------------------------- New Features: ------------- > dsPIC33FJ support and PIC24HJ support > Better support of devices with configuration set for /MCLR OFF > Troubleshooting Wizard for assistance debugging ICSP connections. > Added Programmer -> Hold Device in Reset and /MCLR checkbox Allows control over device /MCLR signal.
