Magenta Electronics Icebreaker

A real-time PIC In-Circuit Emulator, programmer, debugger and development system! ICEBreaker combines Microchip's MPLAB development software with the advanced self-debugging features of the latest PIC microcontrollers. In-Circuit Debugging (ICD) is a new development system which is incorporated into the latest devices, and permits code development & debugging under PC control until the system is running as required.

The EPE ICEBreaker is intended as an easy introduction to ICD with very simple demonstration programs, but it is also a powerful debugger and development unit in its own right. A solderless breadboard area allows external discrete interface circuitry to be refined, and the entire unit is assembled on a high-quality printed circuit board. The ICEBreaker will become an indispensable tool for learning, development and testing of PIC projects.

Note that this is a commercial design and a high-quality kit with Windows software and pre-programmed chip is available from Magenta Electronics Source code is not available.
