ICSP connection

 

ICSP Connection

PIC24F16KA102 has more than one pair of PGECx and PGEDx pins. You can use any pair, but you must use them as a pair. For example, if PGEC2 is used for ICSPCLK, then ICSPDAT must be connected to PGED2.

All VSS and VDD pins must be connected. Even if one of these pins is not connected, programming may fail.

 

LVP Limitations

Since NSDSP is a Low-Voltage Programmer (LVP), it can only program PIC devices if MCLRE configuration bit is enabled. Fresh (unprogrammed) devices have MCLRE bit set and therefore they can be programmed. It is impossible to disable MCLRE bit during LVP programming, but if the device has been previously programmed with HVP programmer, the MCLRE bit may have been disabled.

When brown-out is enabled with BOREN configuration bit, LVP is only possible when the VDD voltage is above the brown-out threshold.

These limitations may be avoided with High-Voltage Programming (HVP), however NSDSP requires an external circuit for HVP.

 

Programming Benchmarks

We have measured time necessary to program and verify PIC24F16KA102.

Operation Time
Programming and Verification 1.6s
Programming only 1.3s
Verification only 0.4s

The measurements reflect the time necessary to program/verify the entire chip, including all user programmable memory areas and very slow data EEPROM.

 

Debugging

NSDSP firmware contains all the necessary provisions for debugging PIC24F16KA102 with NSDS. Once NSDS support for this device is compliete, NSDS will be able to debug it.
