MPLAB PM3 Universal Device Programmer

Yesterday I had a chance to play with MPLAB PM3 Universal Device Programmer. Its Lovely. Its Programing speeds are also impressive comparatively to my PicKit2.

Basically it is a Programmer that supports Microchip’s entire line of PIC devices as well as the latest dsPIC devices. And also its expensive. Its cost like $900 USD.
