The FIRE-C166S V2 emulator module supports the whole C166S V2 family. All features of the BONDOUT chips are supported, trigger and selective trace is possible on internal addresses and data, on registers and on peripheral accesses. 192 extra trace channels are used to trace all BONDOUT signals. The ROM and FLASH memory is emulated by an extra emulation system with separate breakpoints and execution flags for code coverage. The emulator can simulate bootstrap sequences and FLASH operation.
