Microchip Technology Inc. has announced the MPLAB REAL ICE emulation system for the development of applications employing the company's PIC MCUs and dsPIC digital signal controllers (DSCs). Addressing the need for increased controller memory speed and cable interconnection distances, the new solution offers low-cost, next-generation emulation support for Microchip's high-speed MCUs and DSCs.

The MPLAB REAL ICE emulation system supports standard and advanced debugging facilities, such as complex break points, application code trace and data logging, code execution stopwatch and real-time variable monitoring. It is fully integrated into the MPLAB Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for writing code, building projects, testing, verification and programming. Leveraging the power of the MPLAB IDE, the emulation system integrates hardware and software application design tools to aid development and enable rapid application deployment within a consistent, unified framework. The MPLAB IDE is shipped free with the MPLAB REAL ICE emulation system.

Increasingly, embedded design engineers are looking to simplify code development while reducing design-software costs. Microchip developed the MPLAB REAL ICE emulation system concurrently with the design of its next-generation MCU and DSC devices to ensure tightly coupled emulation integration. Proprietary on-chip resources furnish an emulation window for full-speed debugging, while monitoring variables in real time. High-speed data interfaces rapidly upload large trace records and accommodate quick monitoring and instant adjustment of application parameters.
