QUESTION

Is it possible to create user-specific device databases for ┬ÁVision?

ANSWER

Yes. Additional Device Databases must be defined manually in the file C:\KEIL\TOOLS.INI. For example, you can create a device database that contains all SmartCards. To do so, in TOOLS.INI, under the section [UV2], create a CDBx entry as shown below.

[UV2]
CDB0=path\PCARDS.CDB("Our Smart Cards")

This allows accessing the Device Database file PCARDS.CDB stored in the folder C:\KEIL\path (path is relative to the ┬ÁVision installation folder). The Device Database name "Our Smart Cards" is displayed in dialogs where the Device Database can be selected. For example, in the dialog Options for Target - Device and File - Device Database.
