  • One of the many annoying things about the PIC KIT III (compared to the PIC KIT II) is that it requires target power to operate.

    But, I have a fix, which requires just a diode and a wire.

    Connect the anode of the diode to C9, on the end closest to U7. Connect the cathode to J4, pin 2.

    Voila! Now the computer powers the target (just as the PIC KIT II did) and the PIC KIT III no longer annoys you with that one hassle.


No public wish lists :(
