Is there a published circuit design anywhere showing how to design your own PC to BDM interface?
That's a reference design to build BDM to parallel interface. There's also a reference to files, but it's through a BBS .... How old can it be ? May be if you search for 'AN1230 software' there will be something. A BBS.... I was young when I was using them

FYI, http://www.allactivex.com has USB pod base on PIC MCU. this site give the schematic and PCB layout but firmware for PIC must buy from him for 47 USD (include MCU). i think this cheaper then pemicro USB pod 199 USD.
i already buy usb pod from pemicro but stuck on code warrior software since i already familiar with pemicro IDE on hc08. pemicro (you know) don't give it's hcs08 IDE for free.
i may be will buy pemicro ICD but i'm not sure it's support non intrusive command.

Thanks for the info on this solution, after looking around for a while we decided to design our own. We couldn't bear to use one based on a PIC or AVR
