The Adapticom team of experienced engineering professionals represents a variety of industries and backgrounds. We have combined our hardware, software, and product development talents to reduce your costs, improve your time to market, and save you from temporarily growing your facilities and personnel.
Adapticom also has extensive experience with PIC microcontrollers, along with numerous development stations and tools.
A debugger/programmer solution the MPLAB® ICD 2 is a real-time debugger and programmer for selected PIC® MCUs and dsPIC® DSCs. Using Microchip Technology's proprietary In-Circuit Debug functions, programs can be downloaded, executed in real time and examined in detail with the debug functions of MPLAB. Set watch variables and breakpoints from symbolic labels in C or assembly source code, and single step through C source lines or into assembly code. MPLAB ICD 2 can also be used as a development programmer for supported MCUs.
Has two dedicated hardware lines (microcontroller pins used only during debugging mode) that control In Circuit Serial Programming™ (ICSP™) of the device and, afterwards, debugging through proprietary, on-chip firmware. The ICD 2 debug features are built into the microcontroller and activated by programming the debug code into the target processor. There is some shared overhead expense that includes one stack level, some general purpose file registers and a small area of program memory when in the debug mode.
The MPLAB ICD 2 connects using USB or RS-232 between the design engineer's PC operating with MPLAB IDE and their product board (target) being developed. It acts as an intelligent interface/translator between the two, allowing the engineer to look into the active target board's microcontroller, viewing variables and registers at breakpoints with MPLAB watch windows. A breakpoint can be set to halt the program at a specific location. The program can be single-stepped or run at full speed. At breakpoints, data and program memory can be read and modified. Additionally, the MPLAB ICD 2 can be used to program or reprogram the Flash-based microcontroller while installed on the board.
In today’s market, it’s not always necessary or advisable to hire direct or onsite mechanical design personnel. Let our staff handle your engineering workload and pay only for the engineering work needed. Avoid the payroll expenses related to hiring direct employees, the high cost of onsite contractors, and the inefficiencies of a periodically idle engineering staff.
