If you are brave and have extra $, get the PICKIT 3 - in a few years it will be up to par with the PICKIT2. However, the PICKIT2 is tried and true... It is proven and it works well. The 3 has quite a ways to go before it can compete with the PICKIT2 - alot of bugs to work out (firmware/software wise).

Just my opinion, though.

You don't need the board, no. But, it might come in handy one day.

ok so i finally saved up enough money to buy a pickit3!!!
yeah its here...

after buying the dios chip from kronos and a basicstamp homework board
i figured i should start over from the basics

so i got my kit and it came with an icsp14 adapter...
i think i have hooked up the jumpers right
(all said and done the jumpers all landed on BC wow ..duh i guess)

anyways i need to know where i can find some free basic code to pump into this thing so i know its working

any help or pointers?

thanks again guys...

The CD should have a bunch of info on it. The manual and the tutorial programs would be the place to start.

Unfortunately, I won't be able to help much since I am loaded down with school work.

no worries kevin!!!
school can be a real bitch!!!
i just got laid off so ill be going back real soon if something does not come up

so I looked over the cd that came with the pickit3
and i see why dios and basicstamps are preferred for beginners

the mplab stuff is like reading Chinese
and yes they have the manual in Chinese on the disk too...

I am looking for the simplest make a led flash "hello world" program
that's got to be on the web somewhere...

found this
gona try it and see what it does
this language is way more "big boy" stuff...

#include <p18cxxx.h>

#pragma config WDT = OFF

void main (void)
{
TRISB = 0;

/* Reset the LEDs */
PORTB = 0;

/* Light the LEDs */
PORTB = 0x5A;

while (1)
;
}
