Logicís TICkit 63 Module is a complete micro-interpreter implemented in a 40
pin DIP form factor. The module can be plugged into a DIP socket or a solderless
breadboard. The 63 module is an
affordable, proven nucleus to build your project around.
Eliminate time consuming setup and debugging.
When you apply power to the 63 module you will know it is working and
ready for programming. How
many times have you been frustrated because you couldnít even get your project
processor to run? The 63 module can be used to assist in debugging the rest of
your project circuitry.
TICkit 63 FBasic interpreter, the core of the TICkit 63 module, works with
Proteanís TICkit IDE software to create at rapid development system.
Programs are created with FBasic, a powerful yet simple proprietary
programming language. Using Proteanís extensive library of pre-written TICkit
functions, developers have programming opportunities that would otherwise have
been time consuming or beyond their area of expertise. These capabilities
combine to enable the developer to add sophisticated features to any project
program the TICkit 63 module you will need the TICkit Development Kit, which
contains the Integrated Development Environment (IDE) software and a download
cable. The IDE is a program editor, compiler, debugger, and technical reference
combined into a single program. The editor allows multiple edit windows which
facilitates the use of libraries and program models. The compiler, a high speed
optimizing tokenizer, resolves addresses and reports syntactical or grammatical
program errors at compile time. The debugger boasts source level tracing of
program execution, variable watch points, program break points, and other
advanced debugging methods.
