JTAG emulator PALMiCE3 H8S
PALMiCE3 H8S is a JTAG emulator that incorporates on-chip debugging function in Renesas Electronics-made H8S and H8SX family cores.

Having inherited the concept of PALMiCE series, it realizes comfortable operation by speedup, and ease-of-use by compactification and provision for connection that requires no power supply.
Attains speed up
In consideration for realization of better debugging features and augmentation of trace memory, communication between PALMiCE3 and the host computer has been made faster to (30MB/S), 3 times the conventional ratio. This made transfer of internal resource such as traced data faster and thereby made debugging more comfortable.
Inherited Vbus support that requires no power supply
Realized connection that requires no power supply with Vbus support provision based on the concept inherited from PALMiCE series.
Even more compact body design
Although performance has been improved, it has been materialized to even lighter and smaller body than the former product.
Allows to add debugging environment at low cost
By additionally purchasing optional CSIDE that can be used with the same product unit as that of the debugger software "CSIDE" in standard set, debugging environment for newly added CPU can be installed at low cost.
- H-UDI model: H8S SuperH

Provided with integrated development environment "CSIDE" Version 5 as standard
Provided with integrated development environment as standard for seamless implementation of development phases from creation of the program to debugging.
Undo Trace into feature  for undoing Trace into execution that went too far *2
Restores the results of execution back to original state by putting virtual memory and virtual register back to the values before change if Trace into execution (by single step execution) went too far. It allows easy reviewing of simple operations such as re-execution with the values changed and checking of the state before branched.
Simulated I/O feature  which implements printf debugging through JTAG *3
The debugger processes standard input/output of the user program through JTAG. For example, when C library functions such as printf() and scanf() are executed, they will be output to Terminal Window of the debugger and keyboard input will be forwarded to the user program. This feature processes communication between the user program and the debugger in real time without causing break to CPU. Thus, it is perfect for debugging that pursues realtimeliness.
CPU break feature *1
Allows after-execution break of the program and access break upon read/write of data.
Branch tracing feature *1
Allows to display data for a few branches (branch source or branch source/destination, supplementation between branches) right before break.
DTC parallel transfer *3
Allows access to memory without causing break while the using program is being executed.
On-chip flash memory debugging feature
Also supports software break settings and ordinary memory rewriting feature in addition to downloading.
Easy update
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.

To assist debugging of the target program using OS, optional debug library softwares have been prepared for each OS. Use of the debug library will add features for OS state indication, program operation check, etc.
µITRON support
By additionally purchasing optional RTOS Debug Library besides debugger software, task tracing feature and status indication feature for real-time OS will be added.
(Specifications vary by µITRON.)
