Real ICE

MPLAB® REAL ICE™ In-Circuit Emulator is Microchip's most capable hardware emulator/debugger/programmer. Like the MPLAB ICD 3 and PICkit 3, it can program and debug Microchip PIC® microcontrollers and dsPIC® digital signal controllers. Also, it works seamlessly with the MPLAB X IDE.

The emulator connects to a PC using a high-speed USB 2.0 interface and connects to the target using the same interface found on all Microchip Debugger/Programmers, an In Circuit Serial Programming (ICSP) interface. An optional LVDS (Low-Voltage Differential Signal) connection is available via the Performance Pak (PDF).

 Not recommended for new designs and no new device support will be added to it as of June 1, 2019. For new designs, please consider the MPLAB ICE 4.
