Hola:

La palabra correcta o sustituto de ella, si acaso es, "problemas". me hace más ilusión hacerla yo mismo, al mismo tiempo como la original está verde, mejor protegida que también puedo mandarla a diseñar. No te sale rentable y tienes problemas. No siempre es así, en tema de PicKit clone si da problemas.

Terminarán sacado el 4 en pocos años.

y yo aun con el VVP error level ese que me atormenta en el clone 2,
bueno aun no le he metido ganas que digamos en resolverlo...

..... en fin de todos modos probe con unas eeproms 24LC01, 02, 08, 32, y 64 y no pude leer ni programar a ninguna, y de las eeprom 93c pues ni supe como conectarla, por cierto para que es el sexto pin en el pickit2 original que el clone no tiene???
Hace tiempo todo el tema de la programación de las EEPROM's 24L.... lo había comentado en este mismo thread Moyano Jonhatan.

Si te fijas en el directorio que has instalado el Software del PicKit2 veras que hay un archivo con el nombre PICkit 2 Readme.txt, abrelo con el Notepad o el programa que uses y busca la sección Serial EEPROM Devices.

En el esquematico original que puedes ver en la página 81 y 82 de la Guia del Usuario del PicKit2 veras que el 6° pin del conector J3-ICSP del PicKit2 va conectado con una(dos) resistencia(s) al pin #6 del PIC18F2550 del programador. También hay otras conexiones que notaras, pero son parte de la compatibilidad con la línea de µControladores de 3,3V algo que ha sido comentado desde el principio de este thread por Moyano Jonhatan (que no estaria cubierta en este thread).

Luego de leer detenidamente la documentación que acompaña al producto original y adecuar tu PicKit2-Clone comenta como te fue .



Meta
Perdona y no lo tomes a mal Angel Acaymo, pero si no vas a agregar algo de ayuda a lo que ha preguntado otro forista no escribas post para distraer de tema y/ó llevar gente a tu página de Blogspot, de esa manera solo se llena de "tonterias" (solo use una de tus palabras) un thread y quienes entran terminan por no leer nada y preguntar cien veces lo mismo.
Te lo escribo con la mejor onda y luego de varios años de mirar/leer presentaciones que has hecho en tus páginas web y en Foros de Electrónica.

* Indicates new parts supported in this release with v1.61 of the
  device file.

+ Indicates parts that require 4.75V minimum VDD for programming.
  PICkit 2 may not be able to generate sufficiently high VDD,
  so an external 5.0v power supply may be required.

# indicates Midrange parts that support low Vdd programming

-----------------------------------------------------------------
3. 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.

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.  It may crash the PICkit 2 app    *
*      and/or Windows.                                          *
*   3) Never connect more than 1 PICkit 2 in Bootloader mode    *
*      ("Busy" LED blinking slowly).  This may crash Windows.   *
*   4) Never update the firmware OS of a unit when another unit *
*      in bootloader mode is connected, or has OS earlier than  *
*      v2.30.00                                                 *

Bug Fixes:
-------------
> Requires firmware v2.30.01 which fixes an issue with 24LC
  serial EEPROM reads.


-----------------------------------------------------------------
   Release notes V2.50.00
-----------------------------------------------------------------

New Features:
-------------
> PIC32 Device Support
  See section 2 of this file for specific part numbers supported.
  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.

                NOTE: Bus pullups are required for all
                      programming operations.  400kHz requires
                      2k Ohm pullups.

        Ax Chip Select checkboxes-
                These are only enabled for devices that support

> UART Tool
  The UART Communication Tool, available under the "Tools" menu,
  allows the PIckit 2 to be used as a serial UART interface for 
  communicating with a microcontroller. 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.

> 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_"

> Memory Region Selection:

    The following programmer functions will always operate on all
    regions of device memory, regardless of memory region select
    checkboxes:
        Programmer -> Erase
        programmer -> Blank Check

    For devices with EEPROM Data Memory, the checkboxes will 
    affect the following programmer functions:
    Programmer -> Read      (including Read & Export button)
    Programmer -> Write     (including Import & Write button)
    Programmer -> Verify

    The regions affected are as follows:

        Program Checkbox:   EE Data Checkbox:    Read/Write/Verify:
        -----------------   -----------------    ------------------
        [X]                 [X]                  All regions
        [X]                 [ ]                  Program Memory, UserIDs, 
                                                 Config Word(s)*
        [ ]                 [X]                  EE Data only*
    [ ]                 [ ]                  - not allowed -

        *NOTE that region selections may not work properly if 
         code protect, data protect, or write protects are  
         presently active in the device.


Program Memory and EEPROM Data editing:
---------------------------------------
By default, program memory and EEPROM data may be edited in the 
display windows.
To disable this feature, edit the INI file
C:\Program Files\Microchip\PICkit 2 v2\PICkit2.ini
(Created when the application is first run)

Change the "EDIT" parameter to "N":
EDIT: N
Quiero ahora que me grabe EEPROM y no depender del TE20x, Ya descubiré si puedo o no de alguna manera aunque sea trapichoza. Espero que Microchip no abandone tan pronto actualizaciones del PicKit 2.

Hay que hacer la salvedad de que ese ReadMe.txt es especifico para el PicKit2 ORIGINAL, y que el PicKit2-Clone de este thread no contempla ninguno de los µControladores ni de las memorias de la línea de 3,3Volt.

Además, quienes tenemos en una plaqueta el zocalo ZIF de 40 pines debemos tener en cuenta que las conexiones de la memorias deben de estar en un todo de acuerdo a:

J2C, cierto lo que dices, es solo que voy empezando con esto de los pic e imaginate leer 124 paginas de este tema pues esta cañon, pero ya poco a poquito le ire agarrando la onda, de momento las practicas que he hecho con el pic18f2550 no me ha dado problemas, de ningun tipo, todo lo programa bien. Bueno gracias y ""VOLVERE""" con mas preguntas

Hola Jonathan, como va, consulta de rigor, compre el PciKit3 y necesito un circuito para conectar el ICSP del programador a un zocalo zif para programar el PIC (ej. 18F2550).
Cordiales Saludos

Hola:

Ños, todo el mundo preferían el PicKit 2, ahora prefieren el PicKit 3. ¿Ha mejorado algo?
Siguiendo el tema.

El ICSP es universal, funciona el mismo que para el Pickit2. Ahí meta te ha puesto como es la conexión.
17/04/2012 #2472


OK, gracias meta y jonathan, investigando un poco en el foro tomé una de tus creaciones jona un circuito ICSP conector universal que posteaste en otro hilo, aún no lo probé.
No subo el esquemáticos y el PCB porque no:enfadado: se como hacerlo en el foro, en breve lo subiré.
Cordiales Saludos.

bueno, investigando un poco encontré la forma de subir archivos, va el esquema y el pcb en proteus.

ahora si,
Cordiales Saludos

si ven algo para modificar, avisen

Al esquema que pusiste no le veo errores, salvo en la memoria EEPROM. Si lees la ayuda del programador Pickit2 original, vas a ver que tiene un pin AUX, que sirve para leer las memorias y poder programarlas. Vas a tener que investigar más ese tema en particular. Por lo demás el esquema está perfecto.
Saludos !

Pero no estas diciendo que PCB has realizado de las varias que han posteado los foristas, como quieres que adivinemos cual distribucción de componentes necesitas??.

Pero si en el archivo PICKIT2.pcb que se encuentra dentro del *.rar colocado en el primer post de este hilo y ha sido realizado con el PCB-Wizard solo debes colocar el puntero del mouse sobre cada uno de ellos y te dira cual es.

Hola a todos,
Estoy pensando en armar el GTPICKIT FULL de Cheyo28 con ZIF.. Me parecio excelente.
Sera que me pueden informar como conseguir los 5.5 Mb de archivos?
Gracias,

cfede1984, hola como estás, no entiendo a que te referís...a los 5.5Mb de archivos ? Si necesitas los archivos vas a tener que ver donde lo posteó cheyo28. En caso que no lo encuentres podrías mandarle un MP.
05/05/2012 #2480


Si, en las 124 paginas anteriores -debo haber leido 80% de ellas jaja- hay una donde cheyo28 propone enviar los 5.5 mb por MP para armar el GTPICKIT FULL, es decir el pickit2 clone de 2 pisos con ZIF. Resulta que despues fue posteado en el difunto MEGAUPLOAD (PLOP!).. Y con gusto le enviaria un MP pero como soy nuevo no tengo esos privilegios aun..
Gracias!!
