Cosmic's ZAP 56800E debugger is a full featured C and Assembly language debugger for embedded applications using Freescale's 56800E. ZAP 56800E provides integrated debugging support for microcontroller and DSP functions. ZAP is available in one target versions for Freescale's 56800E family; ZAP 56800E JTAG.
ZAP 56800E common features include:
  • ANSI C Debugging
    offers easy access to any C object including Enums, Bit Fields, Structs, Floats, Strings etc.
  • Expandable Structure and Array displays
    view complex data using expandable tree displays on structures, unions and arrays.
  • Assembly Source Debugging
    Debug mixed C and assembly applications at the C or Assembly source level including coordinated source and disassembly displays.
  • Nonintrusive "Optimizer On" Debugging
    ZAP does not modify or augment the user code in any way. The code used by ZAP is the same optimized code that will be used in the final product. All debug symbols are stored in a separate section on the host (e.g. PC). Debug symbols are never stored on the target.
  • Automated Testing
    In addition to the graphical interface, ZAP offers a robust command and scripting language which can be used to create automated test scripts including:
    Record and Playback - Save a debugging session and play it back later
    Multiple File Simulated I/O - Interactively open, read and write to multiple input and output files on the host system.
  • Source Browsing
    Browse and set breakpoints in any source windows.
  • On-line Help
