To start this project off,
this is a pickit2 clone, parts used in proteus selected to show circiut, but parts used for original where through hole type.
some notes on use.

J2 fitted if usb powers programmer
J5 fitted if 12v power is used, this is the better option as it can power the board.http://www.blueroomelectronics.com/
