PIN#  	SIGNAL
1 	+5V always on (It is not recommended that you use this supply to power your target board.  Current capability is limited.)
2 	Programming Voltage (Vpp) - Connect to MCLR/Vpp pin on target device.
3 	Reserved - do not connect
4 	Switched Vdd (This pin should not be used to power your target board.  It is intended to power a target PICmicro only when one of our programming adapters is used.)
5 	Reserved - do not connect
6 	Programming Data - Connect to PGD or ICSPDAT on the target PICmicro
7 	Reserved - do not connect
8 	Programming Clock - Connect to PGC or ICSPCLK on the target PIC MCU.
