Microchip Technology MPLAB® Snap In-Circuit Debugger/Programmer allows fast and easy debugging and programming of most PIC®, AVR® and SAM Flash microcontrollers (MCUs) and dsPIC® Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs), using the powerful graphical user interface of MPLAB X Integrated Development Environment (IDE), version 5.05 and later. The MPLAB Snap connects to your computer via high-speed USB 2.0 interface and can be connected to the target via an 8-pin Single In-Line (SIL) connector. The connector uses two device I/O pins and the reset line to implement in-circuit debugging and In-Circuit Serial Programming™ (ICSP™) programming capability. MPLAB Snap has all the speed and features entry-level users need to quickly debug their prototypes.
The MPLAB Snap features a powerful 32-bit, 300MHz SAM E70 Arm® Cortex®-M7 based MCU, ensuring quick debug iterations. Along with its support for a wide target voltage, the MPLAB Snap supports advanced interfaces such as 4-wire JTAG and Serial Wire Debug with streaming data gateway. The MPLAB Snap is also backward compatible for demo boards, headers, and target systems using 2-wire JTAG and ICSP.
