Microchip Announces New MPLAB ICD 3

Started by Bill Giovino October 31, 2008
Microchip has introduced a significant upgrade to their ICD development tool, the MPLAB
ICD 3:

http://www.microcontroller.com/news/Microchip_MPLAB_ICD_3.asp

Improvements include support for up to 1,000 software breakpoints for all Microchip
microcontrollers (except for the PIC32).

Programming times are also vastly improved. Programming a 512K flash array, which used
to take 3 1/2 minutes, now needs a mere11.1 seconds.

I have a video demonstration of the ICD 3 in use that I will place on that page later.
