Overview

Description

The E2 emulator is an advanced on-chip debugging emulator and flash programmer developed with the concept of greater efficiency in development. The combination of its high-speed downloading and various software and hardware solutions will contribute to reducing development times.

Features

  • High-speed download up to twice as fast as E1
    The download speed is up to twice as fast as the E1 emulator. This substantially reduces waiting time for downloading the control programs to one-half at a maximum.
  • CAN Communications Time Measurement Solution (for RH850 Family) 
    The following CAN-related tasks are possible in conjunction with the CS+ integrated development environment or the MULTI® integrated development environment (GHS MULTI) from Green Hills Software. This eases verifying the speed of CAN communications in terms of system requirements.
    • Measuring the reception processing time in CAN communications with the E2 emulator alone
    • Stopping a program when the reception processing time exceeds the design value
    • Visualizing the history of CAN communications
  • Current Consumption Tuning Solution (for RL78 and RX Families) 
    In conjunction with the QE for Current Consumption, a dedicated tool for measuring current drawn, the E2 emulator is capable of the following items. These shorten the time taken to tune currents.
    • Measuring current with the E2 emulator alone
    • Stopping a program when an excessive current is detected
    • Visualizing the relationship between program operations and current
  • Support for the input and output of external triggers (For RH850 Family) [Learn More: ToolNews]
    For example, you can set up the stopping of programs or of the measurement of waveforms by simply using the test lead which comes with the E2 emulator to connect the emulator to an external measuring instrument with the CS+ integrated development environment or the MULTI® integrated development environment (GHS MULTI) from Green Hills Software.
  • Hot plug-in function available without an optional adapter
    Although the E1 emulator required an optional hot plug adapter sold separately to use the hot plug-in function, the E2 emulator does not need it.
  • Board interface compatible with that of E1
    he E2 emulator can be connected to the user system that was designed for the E1 emulator because the pin arrangement to be connected to the user system has compatibility with the E1 emulator. [Learn More : the optional products for E2 ]
  • Support for new MCUs with next-generation cores
    MCUs that have next-generation cores, such as those of the RH850/E2x series (which incorporate the G4MH core) or the RX66T group (which incorporate the new RXv3 core for the RX family) can be debugged.
  • Software Trace Function (For RH850 Family)[Learn More: ToolNews]
    The function enables users to view the execution history of the programs such as the values of the program counter (PC) and the register values together with the debug instructions of MCUs for RH850 family with the CS+ integrated development environment or the MULTI® integrated development environment (GHS MULTI) from Green Hills Software. Using this feature, unlike the conventional method of “tracing data with the settings of events and conditions,” users can generate the execution history data such as the PC values and register values simply by inserting the debug instructions to the location where you like to check in the program.his feature is available in all RH850 family MCUs, including the ones do not have internal trace memory when debugging.

System Configuration

Note 1. If you are using a 14-pin board designed for use with an RH850-family MCU or the E1 emulator, connect the user-system interface cable to the board via the conversion adapter that comes with the E2 emulator.

>> Refer to the system configuration in case of using the E2 emulator as a flash programmer

Optional Products

The following optional products are provided to facilitate the use of the E2 emulator in various ways. They are only for certain ranges of products, so take care to select products that work with the MCU you are using.

Note: Please read references to "E1 emulator" in the manuals for optional products as also meaning "E2 emulator".

User-system Interface Cable

This cable is used to connect the E2 emulator. It can also be used for the E2 emulator Lite and PG-FP6.
