The debugger consists of a main board enclosed in the casing with a USB connector and an RJ-11 connector. On the debugger enclosure are indicator lights (LEDs).
This component has the interface processor (dsPIC® DSC), the USB 2.0 interface capable of USB speeds of 480 Mbps, a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) for general system control and increased communication throughput, an SRAM for holding the program code image for programming into the emulation device on-board Flash, and LED indicators.
Indicator Lights (LEDs)
The indicator lights have the following significance:
|Power||Green||Lit when powered.|
|Active||Blue||Lit when power is first applied or when target is connected.|
|Status||Green||Lit when the debugger is operating normally – standby.|
|Red||Lit when an operation has failed.|
|Orange||Lit when the debugger is busy.|
