µVISION DEBUGGER: Simulation of Cortex-M Devices


Information in this knowledgebase article applies to:

  • MDK-ARM Version 5

QUESTION

I am trying to use the Simulator that is available in the µVision Debugger with MDK-ARM Version 5. However when I start the debugger I get the following error:

*** error 65: access violation at address : no 'read' permission

This error happens when my application accesses on-chip peripherals. In the past the µVision Debugger used to provide simulation for the on-chip peripherals. Is this no longer available with MDK-ARM Version 5?

ANSWER

The µVision Debugger provides complete instruction set simulation for all ARM7, ARM9, Cortex-M0/M0+, Cortex-M3 and Cortex-M4 processor cores. However it is impossible to simulate the behavior of the on-chip peripherals for many devices.

Today the capabilities of Target Debugging match the functionality of device simulation when using trace with a powerful debug adapter such as the ULINKpro Debug and Trace Unit. It provides with the real-world application features such as Code Coverage, Performance Analyzer, Event Viewer, and Logic Analyzer.

For some older devices, the legacy device simulation is still available and can also be used together with MDK Version 5 projects. To enable the device simulation open the dialog Project - Options for Target - Debug. Under the section Use Simulator change the entries for Dialog DLL and Parameter. The values from the tables below give you device simulation for certain devices. Refer to Simulated Features in the µVision Legacy Device Database to get information about the simulated peripherals for each of these devices.
