Quote from: JimDrew on Oct 10, 2021, 10:52 AMThe SNAP board is the fastest board available for programming all of the PIC chips.  I use a lot of the 33CK and 33CH parts right now, and use the SNAP exclusively for programming and debugging those.  I have the original REAL ICE and that works, but is slow.  The new ICD4 also works and is fast, but not as fast as the SNAP.  The SNAP takes about 2 seconds to program 0xB0000 of code size in the 512 version.

Thanks JimDrew for the heads up on the fastest programmer SNAP!

FineLineIDE v5.0.5 includes settings for SNAP.

Example programmer exe location and cmd line parameters for the SNAP programmer are as follows:
C:\Program Files\Microchip\MPLABX\v5.50\mplab_platform\mplab_ipe\ipecmd.exe
/P$target-device$ /F"$hex-filename$" /TPSNAP /M /OL

SNAP utilizes the same header pinout as PICkit3 and PICkit4 as well as the same USB cable as PICkit4.
SNAP does not provide power to a board.
Not all microchips are supported by SNAP. 
Search for "Readme for IPECMD.htm" in your "C:\Program Files\Microchip" directory which includes a link to "Device Support List"
