Can I program an Serial Quick Turn Programming (SQTP℠) device with a PICkit™ 3 debugger?

Yes, you can program an SQTP℠ device with a PICkit 3 debugger. The process follows the basic steps as of the other development tools such as MPLAB® ICD4 In-Circuit Debugger, MPLAB REAL-ICE™ In-Circuit Emulator, or the MPLAB PM3.

Using MPLAB-IPE (Integrated Programming Environment):

  1. Go to Advanced Mode and enter the password microchip
  2. Go to the 'SQTP' tab, click the settings for your application then press Generate.
  3. Save this generated SQTP file to your destination directory.
  4. Go to the 'Operate' Tab.
  5. Click File > Import > SQTP.
  6. Pick the SQTP file you generated from the step above.
  7. The output screen should say, "SQTP file loaded successfully".
  8. After this you should be able to program your PIC® device with SQTP and the Output window should give information about the serial number it generated.

Note: The PICkit 3 is for development purposes only. For a complete factory programmer setup, please consider using an MPLAB ICD4 In-Circuit Debugger, MPLAB REAL-ICE In-Circuit Emulator, or the MPLAB PM3.
