MPLAB REAL ICE offers the following advantages:
– Low cost
– Full speed emulation
– Fast debugging and programming
– Ruggedized probe interface
– High speed connectivity (High Speed option)
– Long cable interconnects (validated to 3 meters)
– MPLAB IDE integration (included free)
– Small footprint (3 3/8”x4 5/8”x3/4”)
– Real-time execution and real time trace collection
– Stopwatch
– Real time watch
– Full hardware debugging: breakpoints, single-step, variable inspect/modify
– Logic probe inputs/outputs (8)
– I/O Port trace and SPI trace options for high speed upload of trace data
– Over voltage/short-circuit monitor protection
– Low voltage: to 2.0 volts (2.0V to 5.5V range)
– High speed USB 2.0 communication protocol

Standard Probe Driver
The Standard Probe Driver uses a MPLAB ICD 2 type connector (RJ11) to connect to the target application. Designs that are compatible with MPLAB ICD 2 debugging/programming are quickly converted to the use of MPLAB REAL ICE. This driver board is included in the MPLAB REAL ICE Probe Kit (DV244005).
High Speed Probe Driver/Receiver (AC244002)
The optional High Speed Probe Driver consists of two circuit boards (transmitter and receiver) with two CAT5 cables. Debug pins are driven using LVDS communications, and additional trace connections allow high speed serial trace uploads to the PC.
Header Information
Some 8-, 14- and 18-pin devices use small header boards with a special MCU for debugging. This special MCU has extra pins for MPLAB REAL ICE communication and therefore allows the use of all pins on the part for the application. The header board is not used or needed for programming. However, when debugging these devices the header must be used. See the “Header Specification” document below or see a list of current devices that use headers
