Support for this product is limited to customers who have already adopted these products.



The PC4701U emulator system creates a flexible development environment, improving the debugging efficiency of your applications.

This emulator is for common use in many MCU of M16C, 7700, and 740 Families, up to 20MHz. Use-replaceable emulation pods (sold separately) and accessories such as connectors (sold separately) accommodate variations between different MCUs.

Even if you switch MCU to a model appropriate to the new application field, there is no need to worry about degradation in the accuracy of emulation and productivity since there is no necessity for replacement purchases of an emulator debugger (SW) and the emulator main unit.

Each debugging environment for various MCUs can be configured with minimum expenditures of time and budget. That will support to unfurl a wide array of new application products.

  1. Emulator debuggers' operating environments are as follows.
    • M32C PC4701 Emulator Debugger, M16C PC4701 Emulator Debugger, 740 PC4701 Emulator Debugger : Windows XP and Windows 2000
    • M3T-PDxx : Windows XP, Windows Me, Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows NT 4. 0.
      (Note that a USB interface is unavailable under Windows NT 4.0. )
  2. An emulation pod for 77xx Series may need a user-replaceable MCU board kit M377xxT-RPDM.
  3. Emulation pods are overseas standards compliant. (except M3xxxxT-RPD)
  4. Emulation pods and emulator debuggers for the PC4701 emulator are discontinued. A compact emulator for the 740 Family, the M38000T2-CPE, is available instead. The compact emulator is an in-circuit emulator with an extremely compact design featuring frequently used full-fledged debug functions, such as a real-time trace and hardware breaks. The compact emulator is available for one-fifth the cost of the PC4701U emulator system.
