ICDX-30U PIC In-Circuit Debugger

ICDX-30U PIC In-Circuit Debugger


* USB (Full Speed 2 Mbits/s) interface to host PC
* Real-time background debugging
* MPLAB IDE compatible
* Firmware upgradable from PC
* Supports low-voltage MCUs (2.0 to 6.0 range)
* Diagnostic LEDs (Power, Busy, Error)
* Reading/Writing memory space & stack of target microcontroller
* Erase of program memory space with verification
* Freeze on Halt

This low-cost development tool provides real-time emulation for all Microchip's PIC16F and PIC18F flash memory microcontrollers and dsPIC digital signal controllers.

It can communicate with a host PC through RS232 or USB. The board is fully compatible with Microchip's free MPLAB integrated development environment and is a complete lower-cost replacement of Microchip's MPLAB-ICD2 In-Circuit Debugger.

As future device offerings become available, you simply download new software into the ICDX-30U at no cost and without the need of hardware upgrades.

Using Microchip's proprietary In-Circuit Debug functions, programs can be downloaded, executed in real time and examined in detail using the debug features of MPLAB. Watch variables and breakpoints can be set from symbolic labels in C or assembly source code, and single stepping can be done through C source line, assembly code level, or from a mixed C source and generated assembly-level listing. PIC-ICD2 can also be used as a development programmer for PIC MCUs supported by MPLAB's programming function.
