The M32100T5-SDI-E is an emulator which has various debugging functions supporting high-speed operation of an M32R Family MCU. The M32R has JTAG-based debugging functions called SDI (Scalable Debug Interface), and this emulator allows on-chip debugging with the SDI.


This model supports SDI-1, SDI-2 and newly developed SDI-3. And it is a high-end model which has full emulator-like debugging functions such as real-time trace. This model is advanced type which provides enhanced debugging features compared to the already-existing M32100T3-SDI-E.

  • Basic Functions
Window Function
PD32RM Window Controls entire debugger. You can perform the following basic debugging commands by using the tool bar buttons: program execution/stop, step execution, execution up to cursor position, and break point setting/cancel. You can also open various other windows from this window.
Program Window Displays the program. Source code is editable here. Matching address line is displayed in color for the program counter (PC). You can select display format from among "source", "disassemble" or "mixed". You can also set or cancel break points.
Source Window Displays the designated place of a program. Source code is editable here. Unlike the program window, you can open more than one window. The window is displayed continuing a certain function or task, and is convenient when break points have to be set and canceled repeatedly.
Register Window Displays/changes content of flags and registers particular to the MCU.
Memory Window Displays the contents of contiguous memory in dump format with "address" and "label". Can be displayed in binary, decimal, hexadecimal, and ASCII. Allows to modify the contents of memory, and also to fill and move specified blocks of memory.
ASM Watch Window Monitors changes in memory content and variable content declared on the assembly language level. Display format can be selected from among binary, decimal, and hexadecimal.
C Watch Window Displays C variable content. In addition to a window that displays variable formula of your choice, there are windows that display external variables, local variables within a file, and local variables within a function.
Call Stack Window Displays function call information of C language.
Script Window Window for executing commands from the keyboard or script files. An area is provided for displaying command execution results and command history. Execution results can be output to a file.
S/W Break Point Setting Window For setting/canceling software break points. Can set 64 break points maximum (OR condition).

Window Function
Trace Point Setting Window
* Available for M32100T5-SDI-E and M32100T3-SDI-E.
Sets/clears trace points. As a condition, combination of 6 trace points and each event can be set.
Trace Window
* Available for M32100T5-SDI-E and M32100T3-SDI-E.
Displays the results of real-time tracing in the emulator. The following three display modes are supported: Bus mode, Disassemble mode and Source mode. Those modes can be used concurrently.
Data Trace Window
* Available for M32100T5-SDI-E and M32100T3-SDI-E.
Graphically shows the data access information on the results of real-time tracing.
Task Trace Window
* Available for M32100T5-SDI-E and M32100T3-SDI-E.
Graphically shows task execution histories of programs using real-time OS.
Task Analyze Window
* Available for M32100T5-SDI-E and M32100T3-SDI-E.
Shows the results of statistical processing of measured data within the range specified with the Task Trace Window. This window shows the occupancies of tasks in a CPU.
MR Window Shows the state of the real-time OS M3T-MR32R.
MR Trace Window Graphically shows task execution histories of programs using the real-time OS M3T-MR32R (V.3.10 or later). Also, each history of interrupt handling and system call issuing is shown together.
MR Analyze Window Shows the results of statistical processing of measured data in the range specified with the MR trace window. And shows the list of the following records : the occupation status per interrupt handler or task, history of system call issuing.
Time Measurement Window
* Available for M32100T5-SDI-E and M32100T3-SDI-E.
Sets time measurement conditions and references the measurement results. As the measurement results, the execution time (Max, Min, Average) and the measurement count are displayed. The number of measurement points are as follows :
M32100T5-SDI-E : Up to four points
M32100T3-SDI-E : One point
GUI Input Window Shows key input panels of user target system. You can make virtual key input buttons by simple mouse operation. While the program is running, pressing the button generates data input.
GUI Output Window Shows output panels of user target system. You can make virtual output LEDs or labels by simple mouse operation.

  1. Depends on the MCU specifications.
  2. Enabled only when the MCU has an SDI trace interface and the SDI trace interface cable has been connected. Because the emulator debugger automatically judges the status of connection to the target board, disabled functions cannot be selected from the menu.
  3. The number of cycles which can be recorded varies depending on what the emulator traces. An estimated number of cycles is 3000.
  4. An optional converter for in-circuit connection may be required depending on your target MCU. (Refer to "Optional products".)
