Once the SQTP file has been produced, load the file into MPLAB® IPE (Figure 1). MPLAB IPE will then program the first device with basic code (including configuration bits) and the first serial number from the SQTP file. Next, it will program the second device with basic code and the second serial number. This will continue until the end of the SQTP file or number of devices to be programmed is reached. Then, depending on the settings under the Settings button, SQTP section (Figure 2), programming will halt or continue at the top of the file.
