Dear Microchip dsPIC Customer,
This notice is to inform you of a fix specifically addressing programming issues you may encounter when using ICD 2 units (revisions R15 through R20) with the dsPIC30F2010.
One of the following solutions can be implemented:
1. Open the powered down ICD 2 unit and locate resistors R23 and R36, currently 180 ohms.
2. Replace resistors R23 and R36 with zero ohm resistors. Alternatively you can jumper over these two resistors.
The attached document illustrates the locations of these two resistors.
(change downloaded file extension to .zip, then open with WinZip)
Return your ICD 2 unit for replacement. Please contact your local Microchip Sales office for an SAR.
