    Code Coverage

    The Vision3 IDE incorporates a Device

    Database™ of supported ARM chips. In

    Vision3 projects, required options are set

    automatically when you select the device from

    the Device Database™. Additionally, dialogs

    display only relevant options to prevent you

    from selecting incompatible directives.

    Each project may generate one or more

    programs, each with its own set of

    options. The Source used to create a

    target are organized into . Tool

    options may be set at the , , or


    The Vision3 Editor includes all the standard

    features you are accustomed to in a

    professional editor. Color syntax highlighting

    and text indentation are optimized for editing

    C source files. Most editor functions may be

    quickly accessed from the toolbars. While

    debugging, the editor is available so you can

    easily make changes to your source code.

    The Vision3 Editor allows you to set

    breakpoints while creating your C or

    assembler source. You may use the context

    menu or the Editor Toolbar to insert

    breakpoints. Breakpoints you set while editing

    are activated in your debugging session.

    In addition to simple breakpoints, the Vision3

    Debugger supports complex breakpoints (with

    conditional or logical expressions) and

    memory access breakpoints (with read/write

    access from an address or range).

    The Vision3 Debugger provides code

    coverage statistics for verification of safety-

    critical applications. Output includes:

    Non-executed Instructions,

    Skipped Instructions,

    Partially Executed Instructions,

    and Fully Executed Instructions.

  • High-Speed Instruction-Set

    and Peripheral Simulation

    Debug Scripts

    Simulation Extensions

    The Vision3 Debugger simulates the

    complete ARM instruction-set as well as the

    on-chip peripherals for each device.

    Peripheral simulation is composed of:

    Dialog boxes that allow you to view and

    rapidly configure peripherals.

    Virtual Registers that allow you to control

    peripherals using breakpoints or the built-

    in debug script language.

    Using nothing more than the provided

    simulation support and debug scripts, you can

    create a high-fidelity simulation of your actual

    target hardware and environment. No extra

    hardware or test equipment is required.

    The Vision3 Debugger incorporates a C

    script language you can use to create:

    Signal functions that simulate analog and

    digital input to the microcontroller. Signal

    functions run in the background while

    Vision3 simulates your target program.

    User functions that extend the command

    scope or combine repetitive operations.

    In addition, the Vision3 Debugger includes

    many built-in functions (like printf, memset,

    rand, and so on).

    Debug functions may be invoked from the

    Command Window (by typing the function

    name) or they may be attached to Breakpoints

    or to Toolbox Buttons.

    Various debugger output may be directed to

    log files for long-term storage, analysis, and

    regression testing.

    The Vision3 Debugger supports a DLL-based

    simulation interface for implementing user-

    defined peripherals. The (Advanced

    Simulator Interface) provides a flexible and

    easy way to implement the behavior and

    dialogs necessary for a new peripheral.

    Peripheral dialogs display detailed status information

    and aid in driver development.

    Create Debug Functions with the Function Editor.
