chipKIT™ PGM and EJTAGproxy GDB Project


The EJTAGproxy project brings GDB interface for MIPS processors, including PIC32.

However, it currently supports Microchip PICkit2 and PICkit3, but not the chipKIT™ PGM programmer.

I asked the developer about . His answer is the chipKIT PGM programmer relies on a proprietary protocol.


The chipKIT-PGM is basically an OEM version of picKIT3 programmer. Unfortunately, it uses a proprietary protocol, which is pretty complicated, and Microchip has no intention to disclose the details.

Obviously, there is the command-line Microchip Debugger (MDB), but it requires the installation of the full MPLABX and it is not compatible with the standard GDB.

Could the Digilent and chipKIT teams work together on adding the chipKIT PGM programmer to the JTAGproxy project?
