Peripheral Simulation

For NXP (founded by Philips) P89LPC952 — Oscillator Control

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.

Oscillator Control Dialog

Oscillator Control

The Oscillator Control dialog displays and allows you to edit the configuration of the system CPU clock.

Control Group

  • DIVM (Divisor Register) is the value that is multipied by 2 then divided into the oscillator to derive the system CPU clock (CCLK).

Clock Sources Group

  • XTAL Freq. is the frequency (in Hz) of the simulated crystal.
  • RC Oscillator is the RC oscillator frquency (in Hz).
  • WD Oscillator is the WD oscillator frquency (in Hz).

CPU CLock Group

  • CPU Clock displays the calculated system CPU clock.

The XTAL VTREG contains the frequency of the oscillator (in Hertz) used to drive the microcontroller. The value is automatically set from the value specified in Project Options - Options for Target. However, you may change the value of XTAL using the command window. For example:


You may also output the current value of XTAL using the following:


XTAL may be used in calculations to synchronize external scripts with the simulated microcontroller
