  • Abstract Embedded in circuit emulator (EICE) is the most common and widely used debugging techniques for microprocessors. Because the ICE is capable to provide diverse debugging and testing mechanisms, such as: single-step debugging, breakpoints setting and detection, monitoring, and modification of internal resources.
    However, the shortcoming of the conventional embedded in circuit emulator (EICE) is that the operation of the processor has to be suspended during debugging, which is categorized as static debugging (Static Debug) and is infeasible for real-time debugging. Therefore, this paper proposes a design alternative to support the real-time system debugging without suspending the microprocessor via the debug hardware Coprocessor14 (the Debug Coprocessor).
    In this paper, the embedded in circuit emulator is combined with Coprocessor 14 to provide both the static debugging and Run-time system debugging. After incorporating CP14 with the debugging mechanism, the control of the debug hardware is no longer limited to use the IEEE 1149.1 test port during debugging. On the other hand, the set of debugging constraints and the observation of the internal state of the microprocessor can be achieved by inserting the Coprocessor instruction at the program level.
