This page displays various emulation header connectors, along with information for connecting development tools to the header.

6-Pin Modular Connector

Debug headers with 6-pin modular (RJ-11/ICSP) connectors can connect directly with the following tools:

  • MPLAB® REAL ICE In-Circuit Emulator (Standard Driver Board)
Modular Connection

Figure 1: Modular Connection

6-Pin SIL Connector

Emulation headers with 6-pin Single In-Line (SIL) connectors are compatible with the MPLAB PICkit 3 In-Circuit Debugger/Programmer.

The 6-pin modular cable attached to the Standard Driver Board may be connected to the 6 header pins through the Modular-to-SIL Adapter.

The 8-pin socket of the High-Speed Driver Board or optional Isolation Unit may be directly connected to the 6 header pins. Be sure to line up pin 1 on the board with pin 1 on the header.

Modular-to-SIL Adapter

You can use this adapter for a 6-pin modular connector to a 6-pin SIL connector. Ensure that you line up pin 1 of J1 with pin 1 of the 6-pin header connector.
