r. PICkit 3 header for PIC32MXxxxFxxxB programming

Microchip PICkit 3 programmer can program most of the PIC microcontrollers. However, it requires you have to build a suitable programming header that consists of all the support electronics. PIC32MXxxxFxxxB (ex. PIC32MX250F128B or PIC32MX270F256B) microcontroller needs a number of capacitors to properly operate. Though it is no as difficult to build as the programmer, you must still carefully study the microcontroller documentation. An examples are also appreciable:
