Overview

The E30A Emulator is an on-chip debugging emulator that makes use of the debugging circuit NSD (New Single-wire Debugger), that is built in the R32C/100 Series MCUs. NSD is Renesas original OCD (On-chip Debugger).

Released: Feb 21, 2011

Details of upgrade (See Tool News)

Operating Environment

 

Features

  • OCD (On Chip Debugger) method
    • No probing the MCU's foot pattern is necessary, and free from worry about degradation of a MCU signal.
    • No dedicated evaluation chip or packaged components required to debug the user system.

 

  • Newly-developed NSD method (Emulator connection method)
    • Allows emulator to debug the user system just connecting it to one coaxial cable.
    • A dedicated coaxial cable which comes with the product is 1.8 meters in length and is flexible.

 

  • Complete debug functions
    • Real-time emulation possible even at highest CPU operating frequency.
    • Ample built-in break and trace functions for MCU debug circuit

 

  • Close to target system actual evaluation
    • The user system can be debugged in nearly the same state as in actual final product operations.

 

  • On-board programming
    • Writer mode is also supported, allowing quick programming of the built-in flash memory even after program debug has been completed.
