iSYSTEM iCARD with Emulation Support for Embedded PowerPC MPC5200

11/6/2003 - iSYSTEM AG announces support for the 32-bit Embedded PowerPC MPC5200 from Motorola. Support for the MPC5200 includes a new iCARD interface to the target on-chip firmware via JTAG and support for 5V down to 1.8V technology. The MPC5200 is supported with the iCARD for the MPC6xx family.

Internal and external FLASH can be programmed via JTAG interface. In addition, fast monitor FLASH programming is available for internal and external FLASH. The 2KBytes monitor can reside anywhere in the RAM memory. The code download speed into RAM exceeds 100 KB/s.

The iCARD may be plugged into either the compact iC3000 ActiveEmulator or the powerful iC4000 ActiveEmulator. Standard RS232, LPT (iC4000 only), USB and Ethernet interfaces are supported.

All of iSYSTEM's emulators are driven by easy to use winIDEATM, an integrated development environment. winIDEA runs on Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP operating systems.
