Core-specific options

This chapter explains core specific settings. Open Hardware / CPU Options / Core0.





Automatically observe this core

When checked, the debugger will attach to the core on a debug session start (Reset, Download and Load Symbols). This option is checked by default.

If the core is not automatically observed from the beginning of the debug session, it is possible observing it at any time later via View | Debug | Session Explorer.


Synchronize this core

This option is not applicable for RL78.


Debug Entry

This option allows you to configure per-core startup actions.


Debug entry type

Define how to connect to the non-boot core(s). The debug session reason (Download, Reset, Attach) dictates this for the boot core:

Non intrusive - Execution is not obstructed and the core behaves as if in a standalone operation.

Catch - Stop the core right after initial debug connection (e.g. immediately after it is released from reset).

Force run - Run a core right after debug session is established.


Preset PC after stopped in init

Preset the PC after a core is stopped during a debug session start. Regardless of the Debug entry type option this option is applicable only for Download and Reset, but not for Attach. Also not used during active debug session, e.g. core stops on software reset catch or low power wakeup.

No Preset - PC is not preset.

Entry Point - Presets the program execution point to the program entry point which must be specified in the ELF file.

Address - Preset to the specified address in the Preset PC address field.



Changing the execution point causes the application to behave differently than when ran without the debugger. This shouldn't be used in normal circumstances. Use with caution after consulting iSYSTEM Technical support.



PC Preset address

Preset the PC for a selected address via the Browsing Variables dialog. If you are using a symbol, make sure to select it from the correct boot process.
