MPLAB Snap debugger programmer


RS Components is now stocking Microchip’s MPLAB Snap in-circuit debugger/programmer, for simple and quick debugging and programming of most Microchip PIC, AVR and SAM flash MCUs. [via]

The MPLAB® Snap In-Circuit Debugger/Programmer allows affordable, fast and easy debugging and programming of most PIC®, dsPIC® and AVR flash MCUs, using the powerful graphical user interface of MPLAB X Integrated Development Environment (IDE) version 5.05 or later.

Connects to computer via high speed USB 2.0(480) cable An 8- pin SIL programming connector and the option to use various interfaces  program devices using MPLAB X IDE or MPLAB IPE

The MCUs programmable by the MPLAB Snap include 32-bit devices and dsPIC digital signal controllers (DSCs). MPLAB Snap is ideal for projects that do not require high-voltage programming or advanced debugging. The debugger/programmer offers all the entry-level features that are required to debug prototypes quickly.

MPLAB Snap uses the GUI of the MPLAB X IDE, version 5.05 or later. It uses a 480 Mbps USB 2.0 interface to connect to the computer and an 8-pin single in-line (SIL) connector to connect to the target. Two device I/O pins and the reset line are used to implement in-circuit debugging and Microchip ICSP (in-circuit serial programming). MPLAB Snap’s onboard 32-bit 300 MHz SAM E70 MCU, based on an Arm Cortex-M7 core, matches the clocking speed of the target device.
