The D6803 is synthesisable, SOFT Microcontroller IP Core, fully compatible with the Motorola MC6803. It can be used as direct replacement for the MC6803 Microcontrollers.
In the standard configuration, the core has integrated on-chip, major peripheral functions. An asynchronous serial communications interface (SCI) is included, as well as the main 16-bit, three-function programmable timer. Software-controlled power-saving mode - WAIT, is available to conserve additional power. This mode makes the D6803 IP Core especially attractive for automotive and battery-driven applications.
The D6803 has a built-in real time hardware on chip debugger - the DoCD , allowing easy software debugging and validation.
The D6803 is fully customizable - it is delivered in the exact configuration, to meet user's requirements. There is no need to pay extra, for not used features and wasted silicon. It includes fully automated testbench with complete set of tests, allowing easy package validation, at each stage of SoC design flow.
Each of the DCD's D6803 Core, has built-in support for DCD Hardware Debug System, called DoCD . It is a real-time hardware debugger which provides debugging capability of a whole System on Chip (SoC).
Unlike other on-chip debuggers, the DoCD provides a non-intrusive debugging of running application. It can halt, run, step into or skip an instruction, read/write any contents of microcontroller, including all registers, SFRs, including user defined peripherals and data and program memories.
