    We are hoping to have PICkit 4 PTG supported by the Aug release of MPLAB X.

    We will look at adding that feature.

    Thats great. That option will be very helpfull to make a firmware upgrade in the field when the calibration values are stored in internal EEPROM.
    This feature together with the power PK4 from target board is the perfect solution for end user to updating firmware.
    Thanks

    In reality such optimism depends on unknown parameter - a value of current that PICkit 4 needs to draw from target board. Not any target can supply extra 200 mA.

    How about more breakpoints? There is nothing I have seen that that has been increased.

    Breakpoints are a function of the device itself.

    For more breakpoints you'll want the ICD 4

    Hi,
     
    Hardware breakpoints are fixed by the PIC whatever tool you use.
    This information can be found in the MPLAB X installation (greencolumn in below document) :
    c:\Program Files (x86)\Microchip\MPLABX\v4.15\docs\FeatureSupport\HWToolDebugFeatures.html4
     
    Software breakpoints exist in some tools, ICD3, RI, ICD4 (it seems not yet avaialble),... and are generally unlimited BUT exist in recent PICs ( less than 6/7 years old).
    they need reprogramming of the flash so they are slower that HW breakpoints but much more numerous
     
    Regards

    For more breakpoints you'll want the ICD 4

    ..and a PIC that supports software breakpoints.

    This forum is mis-configured so it only works correctly if you access it via https protocol.
    The Microchip website links to it using http protocol. Will they ever catch on?

    This page disagrees.

    observe the "SW BPs" column.

    Is MPLABX v4.20 compatible with Programmer-to-Go (PTG) ? or should we wait for version 4.25 ?

    The PTG function for PICkit 4 is still in development.
