Connecting the Target Board

A connection is built-in to select the type of communication with the target. See Debugger to Target Communication for more details and a diagram.

  1. Connect the Mini-B USB cable between the debugger and the computer, if not already connected.
  2. Attach the communication cable(s) between debugger and target.
  3. Connect power to target or debugger.

In MPLAB® X IDE, you can select the source from which to power the target. In order to power the target from the MPLAB ICD 4 debugger, the power supply must be connected to the debugger.
