In-circuit debugger/programmer

10 October 2018 Design Automation

The MPLAB Snap in-circuit debugger/programmer provides affordable, fast and easy debugging and programming of most of Microchip Technology’s PIC, AVR and SAM Flash microcontrollers (MCUs) and dsPIC digital signal controllers (DSCs), using the powerful graphical user interface of MPLAB X integrated development environment (IDE), version 5.05 and later.

The device connects to a computer via high-speed USB 2.0 interface and can be connected to the target via an 8-pin single in-line (SIL) connector. The connector uses two device I/O pins and the reset line to implement in-circuit debugging and in-circuit serial programming (ICSP) capability. MPLAB Snap has all the speed and features entry-level users need to quickly debug their prototype.

The MPLAB Snap programs quickly, and features a powerful 32-bit 300 MHz SAM E70 Arm Cortex-M7 based MCU for quicker debug iterations. Along with its support for a wide target voltage, the debugger/programmer supports advanced interfaces such as 4-wire JTAG and serial wire debug with streaming data gateway. It is also backward compatible for demo boards, headers and target systems using 2-wire JTAG and ICSP.
