PICKIT2 clone

PICKIT 2 is simple but powerfull programmer/debugger for Microchip microcontrollers. First firmware/software version was able to debug only one type of microcontrollers, but currently (May 2008) compatibility list is nearly as reach as for ICD2. With latest software package new gadgets were added: simple 3-channel logic analyzer and UART console. Price of original device is also very low.

Scheme I used to build my PICKIT 2 clone is simplified, some parts are changed to more popular types, but it should have full capabilities of original device.
