Available at affordable prices though, the Renesas' compact emulator has all the functions needed for the actual development, such as real-time trace and hardware breaks.

The emulator main unit comes in a significantly reduced size, compared with conventional emulator systems. This product package includes not only an emulator main unit and connectors but also the limited cross tools, so, you can program and debug your applications as soon as you open the package.

The compact emulator can be connected to the user system by equipping with accessories such as converter boards accomodate your target MCU. Accessories dedicated to the MCUs may be supplied with the compact emulator. We also prepare combined packages of the compact emulator and accessories you will need for some of the M16C and the H8 families.

  1. Using with the converter board M306S0T-PRB allows to configure a M3062PT3-CPE emulation system for M16C/6S Group M306S0.
  2. An emulator debugger come with this product does not use the High-performance Embedded Workshop based graphical interface.
  3. M3028BT2-CPE is M30290T2-CPE's successor which enables operation at a MCU's maximum operating frequency of 24MHz.
  4. M30850T3-CPE is M30850T2-CPE's successor which enables debugging at a microprocessor mode by using a dedicated emulation memory board R0E330850MSRC0.
  5. M32C/80 and M32C/8A groups require a dedicated emulation memory board R0E330850MSRC0 to debug, since these groups support a microprocessor mode only.
  6. Emulator MCU is required.
  7. In order to connect to the user system in combination with the compact emulator, accessories are needed to be purchased separately according to the MCU you use. However, some of compact emulators include them in their packages.
