Part No.: MP-Micro-MPLAB-ICD5
MPLAB® ICD 5 In-Circuit Debugger/Programmer



The MPLAB® ICD 5 In-Circuit Debugger/Programmer offers advanced connectivity and power options for developers of designs based on PIC®, AVR® and SAM devices and dsPIC® Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs). It debugs and programs with the powerful and easy-to-use graphical user interface of MPLAB X Integrated Development Environment (IDE). This next-generation tool offers a variety of capabilities and features that you would normally find in more expensive products to speed up your development and reduce your debug time. 

With its support for Fast Ethernet connectivity and Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+), the MPLAB ICD 5 Debugger/Programmer offers flexibility and the convenience of remote development while isolating your application from environmental conditions. 

Whether you're an experienced developer or just starting out, the MPLAB® ICD 5 In-Circuit Debugger/Programmer will accelerate your development process and help you take your designs to the next level.
