'PIC Emulator'

Looks like I am at a point where an emulator for my PIC development would be
very useful.  I have never used one before.  Does anyone have advice on the
best one to get?

Thanks all

The best emulator is the one that offers the best support in your area.
They all do pretty much the same job, but the support can make the
difference between a killer product, and a dead one.

Which PICs did you have in mind? If you are mostly interested in
low(ish) end PICs, you could be better off buying a Scenix
development kit. You get a SX Key (programmer AND in circuit
emulator - ICE) a development board, cables, manual and two parts
for a little bit more than what a PICstart+ will cost you.

On their web site, the have a whole lot of virtual peripherals
that give you anything from multiple UARTs to A/D's.

I have two Tech-Tools Mathias emulators that I use regularly for all 12 and
14-bit core projects.  I have one RICE17A for 17C development.

The two Mathias units work perfectly, and have for several year (one of
them, the other is only a year old).  The RICE has been back to the factory
once to "fix" it, but it is still unreliable.

The Tech-Tools team speaks Texan <G>.  The RICE teams speaks, well,
something from Asia, I'm not sure which but it sure is hard to understand.

The Tech-Tools guys get back to my e-mail requests within a couple hours.
Sometimes it takes DAYs for RICE tech support.

RICE requires you to buy xtals to use for various frequencies, whereas
Tech-Tools has a PLL inside that goes from real slow to real fast.

The only advantage I know of the RICE is that it uses the same IDE for the
17C as for the smaller parts, and that it runs at other than 5V.

Hope this helps.

'PIC Emulator'

Is there suck a thing as a PIC emulator? I'm still saving up $$ to buy a PIC
burner on ebay, and on the same note wanting to buy a FPGA programmer/board
that can take VHDL code.

Any tips?

While I'm anxious to buy real hardware to do testing, is it possible to
emulate it all? At least for testing would be nice to test it out even if
interpreted/emulated.

On the same note, anyone recommend a Linux program that can run basic logic
boards?

Picemulator:   http://www.picemulator.com

And Gnupic:  http://www.gnupic.org

And miSim:  http://www.feertech.com/misim
                  (written in Java, also works in Linux)

And Oshonsoft:  http://www.oshonsoft.com

Don't forget MPSIM built into MPLAB.

Not sure what you mean by this.  You want a Linux program that can emulate
(interpret) basic logic boards?  There are a couple of programs like this for
Windows (http://www.virtualbreadboard.com), but I don't know about any Linux
programs.
