'Emulator Price, Worth it?'
we are considering purchacing a PIC16C77 Emulator,
1 is it worth it
2 Which one to buy
3 should it interface MPLAB
4 are thet easy to use
any comments would be greatly appreciated

Only you can answer that, Anthony, although I personally
couldn't do my job without one.

Microchip's PIC-Master CE is the best I've seen. The ICEPIC
isn't bad, although it doesn't have the PIC-Master's trace
buffer and it doesn't support the 17Cxx series.

Yes. Even though MPLAB isn't the best POSSIBLE emulator
environment, it's better than all the others.

Yeah, more or less.

Here in the States, a PIC-Master CE costs $2300 US. The ICEPIC
costs around $700 US.

I use ICEPIC 11 with their PIC77 daughterboard
It works well and now interfaces with MPLAB.
Support is good and thankfully not really needed.
Emulators are worth every penny in order to get a

I've just started using an ICEPIC emulator and it certainly saves
me time. You really need to check out the software that drives
the thing because that can make or break the tool. You may
want to look at the new cheaper ICEPICS (actually the basic
emulator is not cheaper but the daughter boards are). Take a
look at http://www.rfsolutions.co.uk. Oh one other thing I'm really
kicking myself for not paying out the extra to get the trace
facility. Lots of times now I've wished I had that!
