Ashling’s Vitra-PPC Emulator is a powerful networked Emulation and Trace system for
embedded development with Freescale’s PowerPC RISC cores, using the NEXUS 5001™ on-chip debug interface.

Vitra debugging is completely non-intrusive and requires no target system resources. Together with Ashling’s PathFinder source-level debugger, Vitra provides powerful run/stop control of embedded software, with hardware and software breakpoints. Vitra provides fast code download to the target system, and allows control and interrogation of all core-processor and system resources.

Vitra incorporates high speed Ethernet, USB and serial connections to the host PC. Vitra provides full Instruction Trace and Data Trace using the NEXUS 5001™ standard on-chip debug interface.

Vitra also supports Freescale’s MPC555 automotive/industrial-control microprocessor,
using the PowerPC BDM debug interface.

Vitra provides Flash Programming for On-Chip MPC5xx/MPC55xx and external Flash memory.
