Create a custom SFR Group

Updating the SFRs takes a considerable time - Check this topic.

High CPU usage

1. Open the Windows Task Manager.

2. Delete processes that are taking the most CPU power to decrease the load on the system.

Disable external watchdog (if available)

Refer to Active Watchdog issues topic.

Check Debug I/O levels

Enable Vref in Hardware | CPU Options | Hardware.

Remove internal resets

1. Enable option Stop after target RESET in Hardware | CPU Options | Reset to stop the target after reset. 

Internal resets are visible in the Log file if logging (4) Emulator is enabled. Search for strings TC:Debug resynchronization Mode 0  or TC:Debug resynchronization Mode 1  before debugger tries to re-attach to the CPU. Need help with logging? Check the topic Active Watchdog issues. 

Debugger BlueBox reads debug status periodically every ~500ms (TriCore devices - If LBIST detection is enabled, the period is reduced to ~20ms) and when it detects RESET, emulation is restarted. In case the option Stop after target RESET is not checked, the CPU is put into running.

2. Make sure the CPU starts from the reset vector after the power-on reset. Otherwise, random code will be executed which will cause the CPU to misbehave and generate an internal reset.

Recommended system configuration (for optimal Analyzer performance)
