Definitions[edit]

New to wiki : dont know how to fix the heading, the terms ICE, OCD and BDM have been used interchangeably the article altogether is confusing, don't have time to actually take care of the article have a look at this http://www.embedded.com/story/OEG20030205S0032 one might paste in text from there. IN short ICE=emulator == no processor == no Chip

OCD ==Debug support on the Chip the processor is still there much cheaper BDM is a type of OCD...

There seems to be a general confusion regarding the usage of all these terms. I have added a couple of external links that might help a confused reader. Hope some expert hands will edit this article to make it more useful.

There are different between ICE and ICD/OCD. ICE is a kind of extra version of chip to plug into original chip socket for debugging purpose. for example, in microprocessor system, ICE will replace the central microprocessor for testing and development. Whereas ICD is built-in every single chip which provide debugging funcations. that's why normally ICE is very expensive because ICE actually contains actual CPU with extra circuits. So I believe there should be seperate ICD and ICE items --Lielei 23:00, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

References[edit]

Need to review the page's reference for bias and applicability, as this seems to be a personal website. There are undoubtedly better references for the topic of this link. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.100.76.154 (talk) 04:50, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Better name[edit]

If in-circuit emulator is a misnomer for the entity it is refering to, what is a better name for this entity? In-circuit debugger is imho also not correct, as the entity is usually capable of doing more than just debugging. Besides original research, maybe literature already uses better names? --Abdull (talk) 17:33, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

Bond-Out Processor?[edit]

First paragraph mentions "bond-out processor" - this has no meaning for someone not familiar with this topic. Would appreciate a better entry into the article. Thanks. Todd (talk) 05:42, 22 October 2012 (UTC)
