GENEVA, July 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM - News) today introduced the DK3300 Development Kit. Targeted at facilitating the development and debugging of designs incorporating ST's Turbo uPSD3300 family of high-density flash 8051-based microcontrollers, which feature on-chip serial debugging through JTAG (Joint Test Action Group), the kit includes a development board, all of the required hardware, and a suite of software tools. Engineers access the debug feature via either one of the USB-JTAG adapters included with the kit, thus eliminating an expensive external hardware emulator.
Each kit also ships complete with an evaluation version of Keil's uVision2 IDE (Integrated Development Environment) and Raisonance's Rkit Development Suite, both of which include an assembler, compiler, linker, and IDE. Each software package has been specifically adapted to support the uPSD3300 family's JTAG debug and ISP (In-System Programmable) features. The combination of JTAG debug and ISP makes the DK3300 an ideal development platform with support for:
- Run, halt, single-step, and reset
- Support for four hardware breakpoints
- Program Trace
- Read or Modify MCU core registers: DATA, IDATA, SFR, XDATA, and Code
- External Debug Event Pin
- Program Flash and PLD
Out of the box, the Raisonance Rkit features a fully enabled, compiler-independent debugger for projects created with the Raisonance Rkit Development Suite, or any other common 8051 compiler.
Another software tool, called PSDsoft, is also included with each DK3300. PSDsoft is easy-to-use configuration software for memory and programmable logic set-up of the Turbo uPSD33xx device. The simple point-and-click environment steps the designer through every step of the configuration process, from part selection to actually programming firmware into the uPSD.
