'Emulator Opinions'

Hi all,

I am doing some development using the CCS compiler, which I like a lot by
the way, and have a need for an emulator.  I am mostly interested in making
the burn & crash cycle go a little faster but will occasionaly make full
use.  I am looking at Advanced Transdata as a first choice, based on the
best bang for the $, and parallax as a possibility as well.  Anyone use
both?  Anyone have any strong opinions about either.

Thanks in advance for you input...

I use a PICmaster & an ICEPIC. I prefer the PICmaster between the two.
Once Microchip debugs and upgrades the current MPLAB, there'd be even
more reason
to buy the PICmaster (The IDE is very easy to use & PICstart plus
software
is a plug-in on MPLAB).

It is expensive, but I've learnt that saving money on development tools
is
penny wise and pound foolish. If you buy something inferior at half the
price,
it is going to cost you one-and-a-half time the price in the end anyway.

I agree, but I just cant afford $3200+ for a PICMaster but I can afford
$760 for an
ICEPic. I hope to make enough $ with the ICEPic to get a PICMaster.

I use CCS and Parallax's ClearView/Mathias unit with few problems.  Both
have bugs, but I think I've found most of them now.  If only somebody would
fix them... <G>

Sorry, I accidentally sent this to Tjaart van der Walt instead of

I agree, I use a PICMaster and an Icepic - the PICMaster
is the better of the two. I've also used AT's RICE16, but
I preferred the Icepic (personal choice). Much of my opinion
has to do with the supporting software; when I'm writing
code and using the Icepic, I do most of the writing with
MPLAB-sim then debug with the Icepic host software . Again,
this is personal choice as there's not anything I do in MPLAB
that the icepic software wouldn't do. I'm looking forward for
when the interface to Icepic from MPLAB is available, this
will make the Icepic a very nice little system indeed.
