USING THE SIMULATED SERIAL PORT
Applies to: MON166 Target Monitor
Information in this article applies to:
- C166 Version 3.12
- C166 Version 4.10a
Are there any caveats to using the simulated serial port of the
MON166 Target Monitor?
There are only a few negative points to using the simulated serial
There is no interrupt associated with the simulated serial
port, so, you can't use the stop button in the debugger to stop
program execution and start back where you left off.
This means that you'll have to set break points and single step
through your program (but that's not a major limitation).
Since the bootloader only works with ASC0, you'll have to burn
an EPROM that contains the simulated serial port MONITOR.
- You'll lose 2 I/O pins with the simulated serial I/O.
