JTAG emulator PALMiCE3 SH7055
PALMiCE3 SH7055 is a JTAG emulator that supports Renesas Electronics-made SH7050 Series.

It is different from the CPUs of other SuperH Family in that it makes the debug monitor always resident in the user memory space.

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
Having inherited Vbus support concept of PALMiCE series, which requires no power supply, it realizes Vbus support that requires no power supply even for AUD model with enlarged trace memory capacity.
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.
- AUD model: SH7055 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 *1
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.
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.
Real-time RAM monitor feature
Allows referencing/editing of the memory and I/O during the user program execution, and it is perfect for the target debugging that pursues realtimeliness.
On-chip flash memory writing support
Allows writing into on-chip flash memory via SCI. Thus, for downloading to on-chip flash memory, connect SCI port of the CPU and RS-232C port of the host computer, and then the operation will be execution by the separately provided downloader program. Once the monitor program is written through serial cable, thereafter, it allows loading of the user program, rewriting of the memory, and setting of software breaks through JTAG by operation in the debugger.
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 display feature for real-time OS will be added.
(Specifications vary by µITRON.)

Supported CPUs Product summary Technical information

PALMiCE3 of SH7055 Series is different from ordinary JTAG emulators in that it cannot be started up simply by connecting it to the target system. You need to write Computex-provided monitor program (the control program for debugging) into the user program space beforehand.

*Monitor programs are programs for debugging the user programs by implementing them to the user target systems. The monitor program executes operations such as execution control and rewriting of on-chip flash memory while PALMiCE3 utilizes interrupt to exercise control over that monitor program.
