NT5000

CPU Commander - ROM Emulator

Features

  • The UUT runs unmodified and at full speed
  • No special fixturing is required
  • Only one generic pod is required
  • New processors can be added with just a software update
  • The user needs to know ONLY one high level language set of commands to use the ROM Emulation card
  • No assembly language is required to use the basic functions of the ROM Emulation card
  • Basic functions include Read, Write, RAM test, ROM CHECKSUM, Fill, Copy, Move, etc.
  • Basic diagnostics are available to troubleshoot a dead kernel

General

ROM Emulation is a powerful and versatile method of microprocessor testing. ROM emulation has emerged as the technique of choice for microprocessor test and diagnostic applications. A µP-Based board is tested by replacing the boot ROMs on the Unit Under Test (UUT) with memory emulation pods. Each pod handles 8 bits of the data bus. Processors from 8 to 32 bits can be controlled with 1 to 4 pods (even the most advanced CPUs such as the Intel Pentium generally use only an 8-bit boot path). The emulator takes control of the UUT by re-setting the processor and under the test program's control (monitor program) exercises all functions on the board. Synchronization with the UUT is automatic and requires no additional hardware or connections.

Applications

  • Automatic Test Equipment (ATE)

  • Service and repair work stations

  • Engineering evaluation

  • µP board emulation

Configuration

ROM emulation uses a high level language that enables the user to focus on development of the test procedure (rather than on learning new opcodes of the tested CPU) allowing rapid transition from one test program development to another with minimum learning time. The controlling link is transparent to the user.

Programming

In this Configuration Panel, the board to be tested has an 80486 processor, 16-bit bus and uses 27512 type ROMs. The setting has also been specified for Reset Level and Reset Time.

The NT5000 is offered with a MS-Windows DLL library. An ATEasy driver is also available. As a standalone system, the NT5000 provides the user with an interactive set of virtual panels to access and control all of the NT5000 features. Following are examples of CPU Commander control panels:

Trigger Bus Connection Panel - The NT5000 can synchronize to other modules in the test system via the Trigger Bus.
Macro Definitions Panel - Front panel macros let you build a customized list of troubleshooting commands.
Front Panel Window - Allows the user to use the NT5000 in the interactive mode for troubleshooting or to verify the operation of the UUT.
