System Navigator for 8051 Cores - SNAV-CAST8051

The System Navigator  probe is designed to support the special features and integrated peripherals of 8051 cores from several IP vendors. The System Navigator probes are available for the following cores and processors: 

  • CAST8051   (R80515, R8051, and others)
  • Mentor M8051EW
  • Handshake Solutions HT80C51 and HT80C51MX clock-less microcontroller cores
  • NXP Semiconductors LPC952 microcontroller
  • International Rectifier (Motor Controller) 8051
  • Nordic Semicondutor (Wireless) 8051 
  • Infineon COSIC

Special "silicon hooks" for System-on-Chip (SoC) development have been integrated into the synthesizable IP model for the core. These On-Chip Instrumentation (OCI®) extensions provide a powerful debug tool with advanced features at a competitive price.

The System Navigator probe hardware is contained in a compact chassis that connects to the target system using a standard 10-pin JTAG debug connector. It requires access to only four pins in the core processor. The system runs on a Windows® 2000/XP PC over an USB 2.0 or optional 10/100 Ethernet port. A graphical, source-level debugger program provides an intuitive, easy to use interface. An optional Keil µVision software debugger interface is also available for complete compatibility with the Keil software toolchain.
