CodeMaster-52 IDE provides most flexible, user-friendly and cost-effective integration of PICE-52 and JEM-52 emulators with best third parties' (TP) compilers. By defaul our 8051 toolset includes a free evaluation copy of the C compiler from Raisonance that allows to compile and link programs limited to 4K byte of code. Then you can upgrade the compiler by purchasing a full capable compiler license from either Phyton or Raisonance. In the same way our IDE integrates free 4K-limited evaluation and full capable compiler versions from Keil Software and IAR Systems.

CodeMaster enables three levels of integration with third parties' compilers for 8051:

  • Project management and debugging in the Phyton CodeMaster IDE
  • Debugging for the programs compiled ouside the Phyton IDE
  • Driving Phyton emulators from Keil, IAR and Raisonance IDE shells

Project-level support


This kind of integration gives a user the great benefit of working in one development environment, ranging from entering your source code to getting a debugged romable code. Today, CodeMaster-52 IDE provide full project-level support for C compilers and assemblers from the following vendors:

The IDE includes a free evaluation copy of the C compiler from Raisonance that allows to compile and link programs limited to 4K byte of code. Then you can upgrade the compiler by purchasing a full capable copy of one of the Raisonance development kit from Phyton or Raisonance. In the same way our IDE integrates free 4K-limited evaluation and full capable compiler versions from Keil Software and IAR Systems.

Install the compiler on your PC once and forget about switching between the compiler and emulator IDEs - Phyton IDE becomes the program shell that controls both your compiler and emulator. The compiler, assembler, linker from Keil, IAR or Raisonance installed on your PC can be set up right from our IDE. Then our project manager automatically re-compiles and re-builds your project any time when the source has been changed. Any error detected after compiling / linking will be highlighted for prompt editing in the Source/Edit window. This significantly shortens development time and facilitates the user's development session.

The same project-level support is provided for the programs written in Phyton MCA-51 macro assembler.

Source-level and symbolic debugging


Phyton PICE-52, JEM-52 and software simulator provide source-level and symbolic debugging for output files generated by C compilers, assemblers and linkers of virtually all 8051 compiler vendors that include but are not limited to the brands listed below*:

* Some of these compilers were earlier sold under the heading of other brands, including Intel Corporation, Franklin Software, TASKING/BSO, Avocet Systems, Archimedes Software, and others.

Driving Phyton emulators from third parties' IDE shells


For some reason a developer using our PICE-52 or JEM-52 emulators may prefer to keep working in his / her favorite IDE. To satisfy such developers Phyton emulators enable to be controllable directly from the following popular IDE shells:

Each of the compiler vendors above has approved integration with Phyton emulators. Read more about integration with Raisonance RIDE.
