µVISION: ADDING A USER-SPECIFIC DEVICE DATABASE (CDB FILE)


Information in this article applies to:

  • µVision Version 2.05 and later

QUESTION

Is it possible to create user-specific device databases for µVision?

ANSWER

Yes. Additional Device Databases must be defined manually in the file C:\KEIL\TOOLS.INI. For example, you can create a device database that contains all SmartCards. To do so, in TOOLS.INI, under the section [UV2], create a CDBx entry as shown below.

[UV2]
CDB0="path\PCARDS.CDB"("Our Smart Cards")

This allows accessing the Device Database file PCARDS.CDB stored in the folder C:\KEIL\path (path is relative to the µVision installation folder). Note that the double quotes enclosing the path and file name are only required if your path has folder names with embedded spaces.

The Device Database name "Our Smart Cards" is displayed in dialogs where the Device Database can be selected. For example, in the dialogs Options for Target - Device and File - Device Database.

A Device Database template is attached below. Please rename it according to your needs.
