Introduction

ICD introduction

The ICDs (In-circuit Debugger) are additional circuitry integrated into the processors to debug embedded system's software. They are also known as OCD (On-chip Debuggers). The ICD controls the processor instead of being a duplicate of it like in the case of ICEs (In-circuit Emulators), the advantage is that the processor does not need to be replaced and the same tool can be used to debug different processors.

The on-chip debug system provides the following basic features:
