- The On-Chip Debugger has both an RS-232 interface and a high speedparallel interface for the host side. The target side has Motorola'sstandard ten pin header for full BDM debug of the CPU16 / CPU32 /MPC5xx and MPC8xx families of microcontrollers. Also on the targetside is an IBM standard 16 pin header for JTAG* debug of the IBM 4xxseries of PowerPC.
- A full interface specification is available detailing the API. Asingle API is used to interface to all supported processors. Alltypical debug commands are supported (such as RESET, STEP, HALT,READ_REGISTERS, WRITE_MEMORY, etc.) Support for additionalprocessors is being added, including Motorola's ColdFire and the 6xxseries of PowerPCs.
- End user list price was $1495 (in 1997) with OEM pricing available.
