Compiler and IDE
The dsPIC processor family is supported by the GCC GNU compiler collection as the PIC30 target.
Under Windows, the MPLAB environment from Microchip can be used with their C30 compiler, which is a version of GCC for dsPIC with some limitations. Those limitations can be removed by recompiling C30 from its sources.
To connect the ICD2 hardware to the e-puck you need to change the connector and use an e-puck (red 6 pins) connector. It’s a Tyco connector called Micro match, type is 7-215083-6 .
To upload the .hex files without the use of microchip's ICD, you can use the Tiny PIC bootloader.
In addition, if you are running a Debian derivative (such as Ubuntu), there are instructions here on how to build cleans debs of latest PIC30 compiler (version 2.05). If you have troubles during compilation (particularly on Ubuntu, which uses dash as /bin/sh), please read the rest of the page as there is further explanations.
To upload the .hex files you have the choices of three Unix program:
