J51 is a Intel MCS51 emulator with all the standard integrated peripherals. A disassembler with an integrated debugger is also included. Standard peripherals emulated are Timer 0/1 (Mode 0, 1, 2, and interrupts), serial interface in polled and interrupt mode, standard I/O, and ports 0 to 4. Microprocessors emulated are the Intel MCS 8051 (no peripherals), Intel 8051, Intel 8052, Philips LPC674, and Philips LPc900.
KMD is a multi-processor debugger. It can debug with hardware boards over serial ports or with software emulators (ARM and MIPS emulators are included in the project). Using the pipe option you can debug over the network or any other communication medium. It can load many executable formats such as ELF, and display and follow the original source even from multiple source file programs. There is support for breakpoints and watchpoints which can trap on specific data (such as loading or executing specific instructions). Support for other features such as FPGA's is also available, allowing loading or any control required to drive a specific hardware device. The project uses chump to allow disassembly and line assembly. Chump also allows new architectures to be easily added without the need to recompile the system. Communication with the backend is done using two pipes/fifos using a simple set of codes. Back end communication program can be created using very little memory on the target device.
MCU 8051 IDE is a fully featured integrated development enviroment for MCS-51 based microcontrollers. It consists of a compiler, an advanced text editor (with highlighting, validation, and completion), a simulator, a scientific calculator, a hex editor, and many other things. Currently, this program supports only assembly language and a few microcontrollers.
