San Jose, CA--September 26, 1996--Applied Microsystems Corp. (Redmond, WA) announced the new CodeTAP 860 for Motorola MPC 860 developers working with Wind River's (Alameda, CA) open Tornado embedded development environment. Adding to Applied's existing PowerPC product portfolio, CodeTAP 860, a small form-factor in-circuit emulator, is a toolset for 860 developers who need a crash-proof debug system.
The MPC860 is a 32-bit, 40 MHz RISC processor designed for a variety of embedded applications in the telecommunications, internetworking, and data communications markets.
In addition to its PowerPC development products, which include CodeTAP 860, NetROM, and CodeTEST, Applied offers PowerPC developers complete debug support. Based on their embedded design experience, Applied offers seminars, training, consulting, and support services.
The new CodeTAP 860 is a small form-factor emulator that exploits the Background Debug Mode resources on the MPC 860 to provide a debug solution. CodeTAP 860 allows software engineers to use Wind River's Tornado debugger with any MPC860 design without linking code, writing drivers, reserving interrupts, or modifying hardware. External triggers for breakpoint input and run/pause output signals facilitate use of CodeTAP 860 with other instruments.
CodeTEST is a set of universal tools for in-circuit verification of software performance and coverage, as well as an in-circuit memory allocation analysis tool. For PowerPC developers, CodeTEST has a universal probe that connects to many PowerPC processors.
CodeTEST consists of four software tools and a target system probe that attaches to the processor running the program that is to be tested. The four tools are CodeTEST/Performance, CodeTEST/Coverage, CodeTEST/Memory, and CodeTEST/Trace. PowerPC developers can monitor the performance, coverage, and memory allocation of their entire program and immediately see the effect on the program of the various test stimuli used.
CodeTAP 860 for Tornado is available with delivery of eight weeks after receipt of order. System prices start at $4,950 for a basic PC system, which includes the CodeTAP 860, CodeCONTROL software, and Ethernet communications interface.
CodeTEST probes are available today with delivery eight weeks after receipt of order. U.S. prices are approximately $9,000 for the processor probe and $3,000 each for the Performance, Coverage, Memory, and Trace software packages. Software licenses are shareable network floating licenses.
