CCS ICD-U/S question

Started by guillaumedubos January 16, 2004
Hi Group,
I've read the CCS website info about the CCS ICD-U/S programmer-
debugger and I'm looking for more information or experience about
this product.
In fact I don't understand if this ICD needs or not CCS PCW to have
access to the real time debug capabilities (which would be a
costly "add-on")
Will this ICD be able to trace, add watches, breakpoints and so on
using the asm sources I use with MPLAB ?

Thank you for your answer,
Regards,
Guillaume
PS: Any websites showing a kind of CCS ICD tutorial is welcome as
well.

Straight from http://www.ccsinfo.com/icds.shtml:
"Please note, the ICD-S40 and ICD-U40 only work with CCS Software and
not MPLAB."

I've not seen this product but from the website it seems that it
would be what you consider to be a costly add-on.



Hi,
Thanks for your answer Scott.
Indeed, the ICD is sold without the software allowing to use the
debugger feature.

Guillaume


Have you considered Microchip's ICD2?  Here's a link (watch out for word-wrap):

Hi all,
Hi amg,
Thanks for your answer.
Microchip ICD2 is quite expensive in France: about 450Euro.
I'll try with the Microchip simulator, it may be ok to begin. If not,
maybe I'll buy the ICD2 or something else.

Can't you buy directly from microchip? Otherwise I can probably sell you
one for less, but I do haev to make a profit over what I pay for it.

Guillaume,
 
Wow, that is expensive.  Here in the US it's $160, or about 125Euro!

If you are using the 877 (or one of a couple other 16F devices) you
could get the ICD1 clone. Its like $60. I recall some restrictions
on which version of MPLAB it works with though...

I guess I should talk to my local reseller to get some explanations
then ! ;o)

Hi,
Hi Phil,
The ICD-U/S is 80euro, I've found it was a good start. All the
programmer were more expensive, and they where only programmers they
can't be used as debugger...
