Microchip ICSP PIC 32F Programming with ICD3- Secure Chip Vs Verify

Tag: microchip Author: dll1014 Date: 2014-03-29

A hex file is provided to the Microchip IPE programming tool and an ICD3 for a PIC 32F. The hex file includes an out-of-memory-map data location with a config bit set that sets a configuration register so tha the contents of ROM cannot be read withut erasing the chip.

When Using Microchips IPE tool, will an ICD 3 actually verify the PIC 32F chip and then secure it, or will it simply program the chip blindly in one step since the chip cannot be read back.
