For Infineon XC878L-16FF — Interrupts 15S/4L (including External, Extended and NMI)
Simulation support for this peripheral or feature is comprised of:
- Dialog boxes which display and allow you to change peripheral configuration.
- VTREGs (Virtual Target Registers) which support I/O with the peripheral.
These simulation capabilities are described below.
External / NMI Control Dialog
The External / NMI Control Dialog shows the current state of the
on-chip external interrupt and non-maskable interrupt controllers.
You may change the configuration of these controllers using the
controls in this dialog.
EXICON0 (External Interrupt Control Register 0) holds
the parameters that control the external interrupts 0-3
EXICON1 (External Interrupt Control Register 1) holds
the parameters that control the external interrupts 4-6
EXINTx (External Interrupts 0-6 Trigger Select)
selects the interrupt to occur with a falling edge, rising edge or
falling edge and rising edge.
NMICON (NMI Control Register) holds the following
- NMIWDT Enables the Watchdog Timer NMI.
- NMIFLASH Enables the Flash Timer NMI.
- NMIVDD VDD Prewarning NMI.
- NMIECC Enables the Error Correction Code NMI.
NMIPLL Enables the Phase-Locked Loop Loss of Lock
- NMIOCDS Enables the On-Chip Debug Support NMI.
- NMIVDDP Enables the VDDP Prewarning NMI.
NMISR (NMI Status Register) holds the following status
FNMIWDT (Watchdog Timer NMI Flag) is set when a watchdog
timer prewarning occurs.
FNMIFLASH (Flash Timer NMI Flag) is set when the flash
FNMIVDD (VDD Prewarning NMI Flag) is set when the VDD is
below 2.3 volts.
FNMIECC (ECC NMI Flag) is set when an Error Correction
Code error occurs.
FNMIPLL (PLL NMI Flag) when set, indicates that the
Phase-Locked Loop has lost the lock on the external
FNMIOCDS (OCDS NMI Flag) is set when a JTAG-receiving or
user interrupt is requested in monitor mode.
FNMIVDDP (VDDP Prewarning NMI Flag) is set when the VDD
is below 4.0 volts on 5.0 volt power.
IRCON0 (Interrupt Request Register 0) Bits 0-6 are set
in this register to indicate an interrupt request is active for
External Interrupt 0-6, respectively.
IRCON1 (Interrupt Request Register 1) indicates active
requests for SSC Error(EIR), SSC Transmit(TIR), SSC Receive(RIR)
and both ADC interrupts.
Interrupt System Dialog
The Interrupt System dialog (available from the Peripherals menu)
displays the status of all simulated MCU interrupts. The interrupt
source, vector address, mode, request, priority, and enabled status
are displayed. Clicking on a column header orders the interrupt list
based on the selected column. You may use this dialog to manually
change the interrupt configuration. Select the desired interrupt
source from the list.
The Selected Interrupt group displays the control bits
assigned to that interrupt. Click on the desired check box to
immediately effect the change. You may even trigger an interrupt by
clicking on its request bit.
Data Type: unsigned char
THE NMI VTREG contains the state of the NMI pin on the simulated
MCU. Normally, the NMI pin is high (indicating that there is no
non-maskable interrupt condition). NMI goes low to signal a
non-maskable interrupt. Enter the following in the Command window to
trigger an NMI Trap using the NMI VTREG.
Enter the following to return the NMI pin to a high level.
Note that on some devices the NMI pin must be low to enter Power
