On-Board Programmer and In-Circuit Debugger
3 in 1 Development System - Development System + On-Board USB 2.0 programmer + On-Board mikroICD (In-Circuit Debugger): mikroICD is a highly effective tool for Real-Time debugging at hardware level. It enables you to execute mikroC, mikroPascal and mikroBasic programs on a host PIC18J or PIC18K MCU and monitor variables values, Special Function Registers (SFRs), RAM and EEPROM memory modules while the program is running. There is also an ultra fast USB 2.0 programmer that supports a wide range of PIC18J and PIC18K MCUs.
Windows® Certified Drivers
Drivers for the on-board programmer are Microsoft® Windows® XP, Windows® Vista and Windows® 7 certified. The Windows certificate is a proof that the programmer supports mentioned Windows operating systems and is immediately recognized by the system, which guarantees correct Plug and Play functionality. Driver certification provides users with a wide range of benefits such as stable functioning, the ability to install and delete drivers without rebooting and compatibility with future versions of Windows.
The EasyLV-18F v6 development system supports a wide range of PIC18FxxJxx and PIC18FxxKxx MCUs. Newly released PIC MCUs will be supported by a new version of Lv18PICFlash software that is updated regularly. Here is a list of MCUs supported by EasyLV-18F v6:
