New Microchip in-circuit debugger
13 September 2017, Design Automation

Microchip has released the MPLAB ICD 4, an in-circuit programming and debugging development tool for its PIC microcontroller and dsPIC digital signal controller portfolios.It includes all the features of the popular MPLAB ICD 3 debugger while adding increased speed through a faster processor and increased RAM.

The MPLAB ICD 4’s significant improvement in speed is accomplished through a 32-bit MCU running at 300 MHz. Faster processing, together with an increased buffer memory of 2 MB, results in a product that is up to twice as fast as its predecessor. The puck-shaped ICD 4 is housed in a durable, black case with a brushed aluminium top and is accented with an LED light strip to indicate debugging status. The tool offers the following features:

• A wider target voltage range, from 1,20 to 5,5 V.

• An optional 1 Amp of power (using an external power supply).

• Selectable pull-up/pull-down option to the target interface.

• Configurable interface speed for optimised programming and debugging.

• Intelligent, robust interface with fault detection and immunity.

• JTAG debugging capability.

The ICD 4 is easy to use and supports all PIC microcontrollers and dsPIC digital signal controllers in Microchip’s portfolio through the MPLAB X Integrated Development Environment (IDE). This simplifies the design process for customers when they choose to migrate from one PIC MCU to another to meet the needs of their application.
