Metrowerks I/O Simulator Components ???

Started by Andrew Leech January 25, 2004
Hi,

Has anyone managed to figure out either where to find I/O components
for the Metrowerks Simulator, or how to create your own ??

The manual says ....

'I/O simulation components are either designed by Metrowerks and
delivered with the tool-kit installation or designed by the user with
the Peripheral Builder'

But I can find no mention of the 'Peripheral Builder' anywhere else.

I'm wanting to simulate a HCS12DP256B.

Thanks

Andy



Hi Andrew,
The CW12 V3.0 comes with peripheral sumulation for the DP256B. If you create
your project through the 'New Project Wizard' (menu File > New), FCS (full
chip simulation) is offered.
Or, if you are in simulation mode (in the debugger), you can select the
derivative you want to simulate: menu Simlator > Set Derivative...

There is a separate product named 'Peripheral Builder' from Metrowerks,
where you can create your own modules/extensions for the simulator/debugger
(e.g. create your own visualisation, create your own simulation components
or create simulation for your own custom hardware).

Best regards,
Erich

Hi Erich,

Thanks for that info. I'm using V2.0 which came with the Motorola
Evaluation board for the DP256B. I don't use C or C++ I code
everything straight in Assembler. Does V3.0 still allow you to do this
? Does V3.0 work the same way as V2.0, or do I have to get used to a
new IDE ?

Where would I get hold of the 'Peripheral Builder' from ?

Thanks Again

Andy

Hello Andrew,
You still can use the V3.0 the same way as V2.0. The IDE itself has been
updated (like the other tools), and in my (biased) view the IDE 5.5 in V3.0
is a big step forward in usability and integration (but again: biased).

If (for any reason) you can run the V2.0 in parallel with V3.0, e.g. you
could use the full chip simulator in V3.0 from the V2.0 environment. For
this install the V3.0 (for download from www.metrowerks.com) in a separate
folder, and then just point the to the debugger of the V3.0:
Preference panel > Target > Build Extras > Use external debugger
And then point to the debugger (change '{Compiler}prog\hiwave.exe' the the
other instance of the debugger).
But if you use everything out of V3.0, this will be a lot easier/simpler to
handle.

On Peripheral Builder: you will need some expirence how to create Win32
DLLs, and it comes with a wizard for MS Visual Studio. You could use as well
other x86 host development tools (like Borland), but this would require some
handwork on your side. Best if you have MS Visual Studio at hand.

Best regards,

Andy,

I did notice if you explore some of the sample applications there are a few with many periphrials that appear once you start the applications. I think those routines where in C or C++....................
