SANTA CLARA, CA -- NEC Electronics' SS-V850 emulation system supports the company's V850 MCU family. It includes features and functionality for real-time device emulation, including on-board flash programming capability, real-time debugging functions, and a bidirectional parallel communications port. The SS-V850 system also offers nonintrusive, real-time tracing with a 32KB memory buffer and complex conditions for break and trace control, both necessary for rapid firmware development. In addition, the emulator supports background servicing of interrupts while in break mode.
The SS-V850 Emulation System consists of a main emulator board, the SS-V853A-EM emulation extension board, a Target extension probe, a 5V DC power supply, 32-bit GUI for Microsoft Windows, Green Hills Software's MULTI integrated development environment, the Red Hat GNU C compiler, the NEC box debugger, a hardware documentation and installation guide, and web-based programming examples.
The V850/850E family of 32-bit RISC microcontrollers is designed for applications that require high-performance, single-chip operation, and lots of integration. With a range of peripherals, an I2C option, and a section of memory configurations, the V850 family is suited for portable electronics, consumer electronics, and industrial networking. To acquire additional power, the V850E family offers an enhanced architecture, a hardware multiply unit that supports 32 by 32 multiplication, and a DMAC-equipped bus interface that provides on-chip support for external memory devices, including synchronous DRAMs.
NEC's V850S Family consists of processors for applications that require low power consumption. They operate at between 16MHz and 20MHz. They feature ROM, flash memory, and a CAN interface.
The SS-V850 emulation system is available now for $1,500.
