Header Identification

The AC number is used for ordering the Processor Extension Pak, which contains the debug header. However, this number is not on the header, as the board may be used for multiple headers by inserting different -ICE/-ICD devices. To identify these headers, use the following information.

AC Number-ICE/-ICD DeviceBoard Assembly Number

Header Setup and Operation

The -ICD devices on these headers are specifically designed to select a device without the use of additional jumpers or switches.

These headers support 8 and 14-pin devices (see "Header Dimensions".) For the AC162059 and AC162070, there is an 8-pin and a 14-pin connector. For the AC162096, there is only a 14-pin connector. (The 8-pin connector is not populated.) Use the 14-pin connector for 8-pin devices, but make sure device pin 1 is placed at the 14-pin connector pin 1.

Header Limitations

Sometimes a header device (-ICE/-ICD) has operational issues or errata. To determine if a device on a header has limitations, see your hardware tool documentation.

Header Dimensions

Figure: Dimensions – AC162059, AC162070, AC162096 lists the dimensions for the debug header. Dimensions are design values in inches.

If the length and/or width of the debug header is too large a footprint for the target board, consider using stand-offs, transition sockets or other extenders in the header connection socket to raise the header above the target.
