Part Number  Description
 AC002021  PM3 ICSP CABLE
Cable for ICSP on the PM3.
 AC164111  PM3 ICSP RJ11 Adapter
This adapter is designed to accommodate the transition from development to a production environment seamlessly. The adapter plugs into the 14-pin ICSP Insulation Displacement header on the MPLAB PM3 Programmer and provides an interface to which an RJ11 cable assembly (which is common to debugging environments) can be used. The RJ11 interface is the de-facto standard on most Microchip demonstration boards. Additionally, the adapter facilitates automation and program sequencing by providing a header footprint with PASS/FAIL and GO signals and LED indicators useful to programming line operators.
