    Default Hardware suggestion - stand alone (no particular compiler) debugger

    I wonder if ther is a market for such a device? Probably Proton market too small to make a Proton specific one?

    I doubt it.

    Trouble is, Mchip doesn't make the OCD (On-Chip Debugger) specification publicly available even if you wanted to do one.

    There's some reverse-engineered stuff out there, and an ancient document from 2001 that talks about the 16F87X (http://ww1.microchip.com/downloads/e...Doc/51242a.pdf) but there's about a 0% chance that it hasn't changed in all that time.

    You could probably get it with an NDA, but considering how they change things all the time it'd likely be another full-time job just trying to keep up. They can't even keep their tools up to date!

  4. I wouldn't know but I'm absolutly sure you're correct, pity though cause it seems like hardware generates money and software makes your hardware attractive (and gets stolen anyway).
