As an all-round development tool, the iC5000 supports almost all 32-microcontrollers, their debug interfaces and trace technologies. Through its tried and tested ribbon-cable interface, a range of adapters are available to enable interfacing to all major connector types found on semiconductor vendor’s development board or even your own prototyping hardware.
By adding the IOM2 accessory, the iC5000 can be expanded to monitor digital and analog signals on your embedded hardware. When combined with captured program and data trace information, timing delays through various layers of software can be analyzed, or serial data transfers compared with expected execution results. For low-power power applications, the analog inputs can also be used to compare power consumption with expected low-power modes of the MCU.
The IOM2 also provides digital and analog outputs that can be controlled via the winIDEA IDE graphical user interface, or through our isystem.connect SDK. This enables the use of the iC5000 to be used as part of a HIL testing platform, combining programming of the target MCU with potential analysis of run-time state of variables for deeper testing insights.
In order to provide further insights into embedded systems, the iC5000 can be expanded using the IOM2 Input/Output Module. The resulting system is then able to capture up to 8 digital and 2 analog signals that are spliced into the trace data as displayed in the Analyzer within winIDEA. For those difficult timing challenges, such a feature enables the development team to check the relationship between signals around the system and software modules or operating system tasks that should be responsible for generating them.
In addition, the IOM2 provides, separately, 8 digital and 2 analog outputs. These can be controlled directly through the winIDEA IDE, perhaps triggering functionality on the target embedded system. Additionally, together with our isystem.connect SDK, scripts can be written to perform automated testing or signal generation, potentially simplifying the examination of a usage case or test procedure.
