'[PIC]Re: Allowable ICD length'
FWIW, this is what Microchip has to say about the ICD cable length. I
thought I would just pass this along to the rest of the list.
"Regarding the cable length, I'm assuming that you're talking about the
little RJ45 cable that looks like a phone cable. Is that correct? If so,
this is a serial interface to the ICD header and shouldn't be extended
much beyond the cable length provided (8-9 inches). This is unshielded,
six wire conductor and longer lengths could generate noise damaging to the
protocol. This is the only cable length that we've tested."

To lengthen the cable, I would be very tempted to use the twisted pair Cat 5
cable that is used for computer network connections. This would hopefully get
you around many of the noise problems.
I have built my own ICD and use the below mentioned cable with a length of 4
meters with no problems
