Programming, Running and Debugging Applications

Use the following procedure for programming/debugging your application programs (the PIC24E Start Kit CDC USB Device Demo software available from the link below is mentioned here as an example):

1. Using MPLAB IDE, open the project C:\dsPIC33E PIC24E USB Starter Kit Demo\Firmware\ USB Device - CDC - Basic Demo – PIC24E USB Starter Kit.mcp. (This assumes that the demo was installed in the default location)

2. Connect the starter kit to your PC using the provided USB mini-B to full-sized A cable. Note that the jumper in J5 should not be installed.

3. Choose “Starter Kit On Board” as the debugger tool in MPLAB IDE by selecting Debugger > Select Tool> Starter Kit On Board.

4. Choose the debug build configuration by selecting Project > Build Configuration > Debug.

5. Build the project by selecting Project > Build All.

6. Download the code into the starter kit by selecting Debugger > Program.

7. Run the downloaded application software by selecting Debugger > Run. At this time LED2 on the starter kit should turn on.

8. This demo allows the Starter Kit to appear as a serial (COM) port to the host. The instructions for this demo can be found at C:\dsPIC33E PIC24E USB Starter Kit Demo\Documentation\Getting Started\Getting Started - Running the Device - CDC - Basic Demo. See the Running the Demo section.
