QUESTION

Does the Keil uVision Debugger support simulation or hardware debugging support for Silicon Laboratories devices (formerly Cygnal devices)?

ANSWER

Yes. Many Silicon Laboratories devices are completely simulated. Additionally, Silicon Laboratories has a DLL driver for the uVision Debugger that allows you to debug your programs running on Silicon Laboratories devices.

The Silicon Laboratories debug driver was not issued with your uVision installation. It must be downloaded from the Silicon Laboratories website (see 'More Information' below).

After installing the Silicon Laboratories debug driver, restart uVision.

To use the Silicon Laboratories debug driver:

Note the Silicon Laboratories driver uses hardware breakpoints, so the maximum number of breakpoints depends on the number of breakpoints allowed by the microcontroller's hardware (usually 4).
