Debug Engine Supports Automotive MCUs

PLS Development Tools’ universal debug engine, UDE 2.4, addresses Freescale’s MPC5510 Power Architecture 32-bit MCU family with real multicore debugging within one user interface. According to the company, it is useful with dual-core versions of the MPC5516 and MPC5514. For example, the four code breakpoints and two watch-points per core can be used by the developer directly in the program and watch-window of the corresponding core. All other on-chip trigger options of the MP5516 are also supported. In the process, the debugger allocates the necessary on-chip debug resources automatically. Other features include support for compilers such as CodeWarrior for MPC55xx devices as well as Wind River's PowerPC Compiler.
