The PDSDK COM kit provides a means for extending the functions of the M3T-PDxx and M3T-PDxxSIM debuggers. This kit may be used to create customized windows for the M3T-PDxx and M3T-PDxxSIM debuggers, and can be linked with other applications. The M3T-PDxx and M3T-PDxxSIM debuggers that support the PDSDK COM kit have a special interface, known as COMNote1, which can be invoked from an external application. The M3T-PDxx and M3T-PDxxSIM functions are called through this interface.

Note 1: COM stands for Component Object Model, which is a standard proposed by Microsoft Corporation to link the OS or applications.

Features

  • They come standard with abundant GUI components.
  • Many reference books are available on the market.
  • Linkage with applications that have the COM interface is possible.

Open Functions

Various methods for controlling the execution of the target program, setting or referencing the contents of memory or registers, and setting software breakpoints, etc. are open to the public. Refer to the Method list in the Reference Manual for the details.

Development Tools Used

To create user-customized windows or link the debuggers with other applications, use Microsoft Visual Basic, Microsoft Visual C++ or other Windows application development tools that are available on the market. Following advantages may be obtained by use of these Windows application development tools:

  • They come standard with abundant GUI components. These GUI components can be used as the user system's simulated components. Freeware or shareware control components (ActiveX control) can also be used. Or, if so desired, an original version of ActiveX control can be created using Visual Basic or Visual C++.
     
  • Many reference books are available on the market. The information necessary to create applications can readily be obtained.
     
  • Linkage with applications that have the COM interface is possible. One of those applications is the spreadsheet software Microsoft(R) Excel (hereafter simply Excel). Use of such an application enables the RAM monitor result to be sent to Excel for representation by a graph, a feature that could not be realized by conventional M3T-PDxx debuggers.
