Where can I find the PICKit 3 board manual ?

Started by "dag...@free.fr" May 30, 2009
Good afternoon

I bought a PICKit 3 which came with a PIC 18F45k20 on an experimental printed circuit board, having some LEDs, resistors, a potentiometer, a jumper, and some other things.

When I connected the board to the PICKit 3 programmer, I noticed that the board was powered by the programmer, and the LEDs began to blink. The board had a program inside.

I would like to know please, where may I find the manual of the experimental printed circuit board.

Greetings
Dimitri

Good evening, Dave.

Thank you for your kind answer. I went there, but... the only thing I found, was a schematics.

It is even worse. A careful inspection of the schematics is that some of the schematics components are there (like the LEDs and the resistors that limit their current), but some of them are not (like some capacitors and a clock quartz oscillator).

A further search on Internet revealed that there is no manual on the board. I am very disappointed. I paid a lot of money for the board and the PICKit 3, I think, a manual would be the least of things...

Greetings and thanks.
Dimitri

I don't see any unidentified components in the "lessons" user guide at
http://ww1.microchip.com/downloads/en/DeviceDoc/41370C.pdf

Microchip typically posts the complete manuals for their products online.

Good evening,

Sorry: not unidentified... these components are MISSING on my PICKit 3 board.

Thank you John
