QUESTION

I'm developing an application for a particular 8051-compatible device. When debugging code in the simulator I don't have control over some of my on-chip peripherals. There are no dialogs for them listed in the Peripherals Menu. Am I doing something wrong or is this feature/micro not supported yet?

ANSWER

The Keil uVision Debugger simulates most of the on-chip peripherals of most devices. With over 700 8051-compatible parts, this is a very large undertaking, so not all chips and on-chip peripherals are fully simulated. You can develop code for these parts, but you cannot fully simulate them. To find out what peripherals for a particular chip are supported, check the Device Database.

For on-chip peripherals that are not already supported, you may either:
