ZView Tools

The ZView Integrated Development Environment (IDE) features a debugger as part of the Eclipse software development environment. Eclipse is an open, industry supported, extensible, software development platform. Programmers can create, test and debug applications with fast data access and extensive display capabilities.

A typical debugging environment consists of the ZView IDE running on a host, the host connected to VeriSilicon’s ZSP JTAG emulator, and the emulator connected to the target DSP. A simulator can be used when ZSP hardware target is not available.

More complex configurations such as debugging with multiple users, multiple DSP targets, or remote access are all supported seamlessly through ZServer connectivity software. This multi-core, multi-device development capability allows the developer to start/stop/single-step selected devices simultaneously. Access to multiple devices is provided from single or multiple workstations via TCP/IP connection. ZView IDE includes ZServer connectivity software.

Text print-BoxView IDE

ZView IDE's project manager supports individual compile options for each file. In addition, workspace options define project dependencies removing the need for manual management of file builds. ZView IDE's editor provides timesaving editing features such as type ahead for structures and automatic code indentation for a readable, formatted code view.

For each debug session, information is controlled and organized by interacting with the target ZSP through monitoring software or on-chip hardware circuitry. Many graphical views are supplied to facilitate control of your ZSP testing. The Code window displays a program in source, assembler, or mixed mode. The Active program's source code window affects the display in the Debug Code window. The current program counter, associated assembler instructions, and defined breakpoints are visible. A command window supports the use of over 140 commands. Also available are multiple graph windows for memory content with user control of vertical axis, scale, and optional interleaved waveforms.

Code performance-BoxView IDE

The Console window displays detailed information useful for code performance evaluations. The information displayed in the window can include detailed cycle information for cycle stepping or instruction stepping. The Console window provides an expanded representation of the pipeline and rule information relative to the program counter.
