pice-196 In-Circuit Emulator

The image above displays an assembled PICE-196 emulator. This is a palm-size header comprised of three stackable boards: a Main Board, POD, and Adapter (from top to bottom). The Trace Cable allows to trace external signals and output triggers.

Features Summary


  • Real-time non-intrusive emulation for most of the 80C196 MCUs up to 25 MHz
  • Tiny emulator header that plugs directly into a target socket - 80x75x50 mm (3x3x2 in.)
  • Up to 256K bytes program memory & 256K data memory (64K & 64K by default)
  • Memory mapping between the ICE and target with the finest possible resolution - one word
  • Up to 512K true hardware breakpoints
  • 4 complex breakpoints / triggers
  • Up to 64K frame deep by 64 bit wide trace buffer (16K x 64K by default)
  • 48-bit on-board timer
  • Shadow RAM provides target device RAM real-time access without disturbing emulation
  • "On-the-fly" access to the memory, breakpoints, tracer, and timer
  • 8 probe inputs and 1 trigger output
  • Embedded programmable READY and BUSWIDTH signal generators
  • Connects to a PC serial port via a light cable opto-isolated for extra protection
  • Integrated development environment Project-96 that includes an editor, a project manager, the MCA-96 macro assembler
  • Source level and project level support for the Phyton MCC-96 compiler and MCA-96 macro assembler
  • Source level debugging for all popular C compilers and assemblers: IAR, TASKING, Intel
  • The PDS-96 software simulator supporting KB, KC and KD derivatives supplied optionally
  • Donwnload full versions of the PICE-196, Project-96 IDE and MCA-96 macro assembler.
