||ROMiCEmini is a real-time debugging tool incorporating ROM-in-circuit method. ROMiCEmini has been materialized to ultra compact body by the new technology incorporated while maintaining features of existing ROMICE64. The use of USB2.0 (high-speed) as a host interface allows faster processing of various tasks such as high-speed downloading at 10MByte/S or higher rate. Furthermore, it is equipped with dedicated connector for connection to the target as standard, which was optional to existing ROMICE64. This allows instant connection. Yet, it supports ROM socket connection. "CSIDE", Computex-made debugger software provided as standard, surely provides a user-friendly debugging environment and supports not only high-level language debugging of a range of C languages but also fully prepared for the debugging of a range of RTOSs.|
ROMICE that incorporates ROM-in-circuit method for connection to the target uses the target CPU as it is to implement the debugging feature equivalent to that of in-circuit emulator.
Supports debugging of high-level languageAllows efficient debugging of high-level language by features for execution control and variable reference/change at source level.
Highly-capable hardware break, real-time tracing featureImplements hardware break by event functionality that allows address, data, and status specification. In addition, real-time tracing feature supports tracing of bus at 50MHz high speed.
Performance measurement featureAccommodates features essential for evaluation of program performance: Execution time measurement feature, interval execution time measurement feature, and profiling feature.
Also suitable for ASIC micro computerIn-circuit debugger incorporating ROM-in-circuit method is suitable for ASIC micro computer not accommodating on-chip debugging feature.
Usability was further improved by ultra compact body and simplified connection.
Compact sizeMaterialized to Computex standard palm-sized ultra compact body.
Instant connectionAllows instant connections to the host computer with USB interface employed.
Instant connection to the targetEmployed 0.5mm-pitched, 50-pinned connector for instant connection to the target.
32P/40P/42P ROM socket adapters are also available for target connection.
Supports low voltageSupports 1.8V-5V for target voltage.
High-speed, large-capacity emulation memorySupports up to 50ns for time to access emulation memory, equipped with memory of 4MB as standard.
Employed USB2.0 for host interface to realize faster processing of downloading and all sorts of tasks.
High-speed downloading at 10MByte/SAllows file transfer to emulation memory at 10MB/S by USB2.0(high-speed) support.
By unique internet key issuing system, real-time support for newly added CPU, update to the latest version, range of optionally purchased software, etc. has been made feasible.
Adding new CPUWhen support is provided for new CPU, debugging of the CPU can be started right upon acquisition of debugger software and license file through Internet. (Some support for adding CPUs are free, while others are charged.)
Updating to the latest versionWhen the debugger software has been updated, the latest version of debugger software can be acquired through Internet by using CSIDE Update Wizard (application).
Instant use of range of optional softwareOptional software can be used right upon license acquisition through Internet following the purchase of the optional software.
Provided with integrated development environment "CSIDE" as standard
Real-time OS support(Optional)
(1)Basically requires the target system that can run on ROM/RAM basis at least.
(2)Must allow the monitor program always resident in the user memory.(128Bytes-4KBytes)
(3)Must allow allocation of a few - 100Byte working RAM for monitor program use.
(4)Must allow NMI pin connection.(Essential for hardware break feature)
(5)Advisable to have 1 exception vector free (for software break feature)
(6)Advisable to connect reset output signal from ROMiCEmini to the target
-Dedicated connector (RCN) connection
-ROM probe connection
