EJTAGproxy: Use your PicKIT2 or PicKIT3 to connect PIC32s to the GNU Debugger

Posted on Monday, July 23rd, 2012 in hacks, open source by DP

SergeV let us know about EJTAGproxy, a command line utility, that lets your PicKIT2 or PicKit3 act as a JTAG debugger for PIC32 MCUs.

It’s a command-line utility, which connects GDB to ICSP port of pic32 via pickit2 or pickit3 scripting edition. A standard GDB remote serial protocol is implemented. It also can be used with Eclipse, DDD, Insight or other compatible debuggers. All families of pic32 are supported, including mx1/mx2. The utility works on Linux, Windows and Mac OS X. Sources are available under BSD license.
It also supports debugging via JTAG port with Olimex JTAG USB-Tiny adapter.
Any feedback appreciated.

    Link to EJATAGproxy above is dead. Could you please make it undead?

    It’s more likely “JTAG” than “JATAG”?
