I work with a project which uses PIC32 and PIC24 controllers.My setup has a Console board(PIC32) which communicates with 3 slave boards(PIC24) over RS485.
I have two projects -One for Console and other for 3 Slaves under development.
Currently i use a ICD3 to program them and it literally sucks with those irritating bugs while removing them and programming them.I don't know if the issue is the ICD3 cable or the ICD3 itself which is pretty new.I get errors like- Device id error,FPGA error, etc
I use MPLABX 2.0 IDE and don't have MPLAB8 to avoid another nag of Driver switch.
Is there any better and faster way to program when you have multiple boards and projects?
Can i add any interface with USB for programming on on my board to avoid ICD3? Like Arduino? USB to USB on PC for faster change of board and programming?
