Cautions to Be Taken for This Product:
• Use caution when handling the main unit. Be careful not to apply a mechanical shock.
• Do not touch the connector pins of the emulator main unit and the target MCU connector pins . Static
electricity may damage the internal circuits.
• Do not pull the emulation pod main unit by the flexible cable (FLX120-RPD) for connecting to the
emulator main unit or the flexible cable (FLX64, FLX100 or FLX160) for connecting the target
system. The cable may cause a break.
• Flexible cable (FLX120-RPD) for connecting to the emulator main unit and the flexible cable
(FLX64, FLX100 or FLX160) for connecting the target system are different from earlier models.
The slits make them more flexible. However, excessive flexing or force may break conductors.
• Do not use inch-size screws for this equipment. The screws used in this equipment are all ISO
(meter-size) type screws. When replacing screws, use same type screws as equipped before.

Note on Malfunctions in the PC4701 System
• If the emulator malfunctions because of interference like external noise, do the following to remedy
the trouble.
(1) Press the RESET switch on the emulator front panel.
(2) If normal operation is not restored after step (1), shut OFF power to the emulator once and then
reactivate it.
( 9 / 58 )
IMPORTANT
Notes on Downloading Firmware:
• Before using this product for the first time, it is necessary to download the dedicated firmware
(control software for the emulation pod built into the PC4701). Please note that, to do this, it is
necessary to start up the PC4701 in the maintenance mode. For firmware download procedures, see
"4.2 Downloading Firmware" (page 38). Once the firmware has been downloaded, the product can
be used by simply turning on the power.
• Do not shut off the power while downloading the firmware. If this happens, the product will not
start up properly. If power is shut off unexpectedly, redownload the firmware.
• Except when a target status error occurs, if self-checks are not completed successfully, there may
be trouble with the product. In such case, contact your sales representative. However, perform selfchecks in the below setup.
(1) Target system:
Not connected
(2) Emulation pod internal switches: At their factory-settings
Notes on Target System:
• The Vcc pin of emulator is connected to the target system to observe the voltage of the target system.
Therefore design your system so that the emulator MCU is powered by the target system.
• The voltage of the target system should be within the range of +4.75 to +5.25V.
• Do not change the voltage of the target system after turning on the power.
• Before powering on your emulator system, check that the host machine, the emulator main unit,
the converter board and target system are all connected correctly. Next, turn on the power to each
equipment following the procedure below.
(1) Turn ON/OFF the target system and the PC4701 emulator as simultaneously as possible.
(2) When the PC4701 and emulator debugger start up, check the target status LEDs on the
emulator main unit's front panel to see if this product is ready to operate.
• Is the power supplied?
• Is the RESET released?
Check that target status LED (POWER) is ON.
Check that target status LED (RESET) is OFF.
Note on Reset Input from the Target System:
• The reset input from the target system is accepted only while a user program is being executed (only
while the RUN status LED on the PC4701's front panel is lit).
Notes on Watchdog Function:
• The MCU's watchdog timer can be used only while programs are being executed. To use it
otherwise, disable the timer.
• If the reset circuit of the target system has a watchdog timer, disable it when using the emulator.
Note on When the Emulator Debugger Ends:
• To restart the emulator debugger after it ends, always shut power to the emulator module off once
and then on again.
( 10 / 58 )
IMPORTANT
Notes on Stack Area:
• With this product, a maximum 8 bytes of the user stack is consumed as a work area.
• If the user stack does not have enough area, do not use areas which cannot be used as stack (SFR
area, RAM area which stores data, or ROM area) as work area. Using areas like this is a cause of
user program crashes and destabilized emulator control. Therefore, ensure the +8 bytes maximum
capacity used by the user program as the user stack area.
Note on Address 0 Access:
• With the M16C/20 Series MCUs, when a maskable interrupt is generated, the interrupt data
(interrupt No. and interrupt request level) stored in address 0 is read out. Also, the interrupt request
bit is cleared when address 0 is read out. Consequently, when the address 0 readout instruction is
executed or when address 0 is read out in the cause of a program runaway, a malfunction occurs
in that the interrupt is not executed despite the interrupt request, because the request bit of the
highest priority interrupt factor enabled is cleared.
For this malfunction, when the reading out to the 0 address is generated excluding the interrupt, the
yellow LED lights up to alarm. When this LED lights, there is a possibility of wrong access,
therefore check the program. This LED is turned off by the RESET switch of the emulator main
unit.
Note on Changing the Settings of Memory Area:
• When debugging the MCU whose memory capacity is different, be sure to change the setting of
memory area. For the memory map of each MCU, refer to the user's manual of MCU.
Note on BRK Instruction:
• BRK instruction cannot be used.
Notes on S/W Breaks:
• S/W breaks generate BRK interrupts by substituting the proper instruction to the BRK instruction
"00h". Therefore, when referencing the result of a trace in bus mode, "00h" is displayed for the
instruction fetch address where a software break is set.
• In the area where the MAP setting is EXTERNAL, S/W breaks cannot be used.
Note on S/W Breaks and H/W Breaks:
• It is not possible to use a S/W break and a H/W break at the same time. If doing so, it may not operate
normally.
( 11 / 58 )
IMPORTANT
Notes on Address Match Interrupt:
• Do not set software breaks at the same addresses as address-match interrupts as the program may
run out of control.
• Do not set a hardware break within 4 instructions before an address at which an address-match
interrupt occurs. If you do set a hardware break in this range, the program will run out of control.
• When an address at which an address-match interrupt occurs is executed in one-step mode, the
program stops after executing the first instruction after returning from the address-match interrupt
processing.
Note on Software Reset:
• If using a software reset, it is possible to set only when the program is being executed. When setting
the software reset otherwise, it may not work properly.
Note on Stop and Wait Modes:
• Do not perform step execution at addresses in the stop or wait mode. It may cause communication
errors.
( 12 / 58 )
IMPORTANT
Note on Differences between Actual MCU and Emulator:
• Operations of the emulator differs from those of actual MCUs as listed below.
(1) Data values of internal resources of MCU at power-on
(2) Internal memories (RAM and ROM) capacities etc.
(3) Oscillator circuit
• Make note of the fact that in the oscillator circuit where a resonator is connected between
the XIN and XOUT pins, oscillation does not occur because a flexible cable, buffer IC and other
devices are used between the evaluation MCU and the target system.
• Make note of the fact that if the internal oscillator circuit of the emulator is selected when
the MCU is stopping, the oscillation does not stop.
(4) DBC, single-step and BRK instruction interrupt vector table addresses
As the emulator uses the DBC, single-step and BRK instruction interrupt vector table addresses,
when reading these addresses, the downloaded addresses cannot be read (see Table 1.1).
Table 1.1 Vector table addresses for the emulator
Factor of interruption
Vector table address
Remarks
DBC*1
FFFF416 to FFFF716
Forbidden to use usually
Single-step*1
FFFEC16 to FFFEF16
Forbidden to use usually
BRK instruction
FFFE416 to FFFE716
Cannot be used as variable vector
*1 Interruption for the debugger only
(5) A-D conversion
As a flexible cable, a pitch converter board and other devices are used between the evaluation
MCU and the target system, some characteristics are slightly different from those of the actual
MCU. Therefore, be sure to evaluate your system with an evaluation MCU. Before starting
mask production, evaluate your system and make final confirmation with an ES (Engineering
Sample) version MCU.
Note on Referencing and Setting the Work Area:
• The work area when starting up the emulator debugger is shown below (set the work area by "F/W and
Work Area" tab of INIT dialog). When using the emulation pod M30240T-RPD-E for the M30240
Group MCUs, use the initial value.
02C0016 to 02C0916: work area
Notes on MAP References and Settings:
• The map setting when starting up the M30240T-RPD-E is as follows.
0000016 to 003FF16: EXT
0040016 to FFFFF16: INT
• Be sure to set the SFR area to EXTERNAL (external).

IMPORTANT
Notes on Changing the Clock Supply:
• The clock supply can be set by the Init dialog when starting up the emulator debugger
or inputting CLK command on the script window.
( 25 / 58 )
(1) Using the Oscillator Circuit on the Target System
When turning on the power supply, the internal clock of emulation pod is selected to supply the clock
to the MCU. To use the external clock on the target system, change the clock by the CLK command
of the emulator debugger. (For details, refer to the user's manual of emulator debugger.)
IMPORTANT
Notes on External Clock:
• To operate the emulation pod with an external clock, construct the oscillator circuit
as shown in Figure 3.3 in the target system and input the oscillator output at 50% duty
(within the operating range of the evaluation MCU) into the XIN pin. And the XOUT
pin should be open.
• Make note of the fact that in the oscillator circuit shown in Figure 3.4 where a
resonator is connected between the XIN and XOUT pins, oscillation does not occur
because a flexible cable, buffer IC and other devices are used between the evaluation
MCU and the target system.
Figure 3.3 External oscillator circuit
Figure 3.4 Circuit in which oscillation does not occur
( 26 / 58 )
(2) Changing the Internal Oscillator Circuit of Emulation Pod
An oscillator circuit board for 12MHz is mounted on this product. To use the emulation pod at a
frequency lower than 12MHz, build the desired oscillator circuit on the included OSC-2 oscillator
circuit board (bare board) and replace the board installed in the emulation pod when shipped from
the factory.
Figure 3.5 shows a view of the OSC-2 oscillator circuit board (bare board) and where connector pins
are located. Figure 3.6 shows the circuitry of the OSC-2 oscillator circuit board (bare board). Use the
number of oscillator circuits recommended by the oscillator manufacturer.

6.3 Operation Differs from That of Actual MCUs
The operations of the emulation pod differs from those of actual MCU as listed (1) to (5) below.
(1) Data values of internal resources of MCU at power-on
(2) Internal memories (RAM and ROM) capacities etc.
(3) Oscillator circuit
• Make note of the fact that in the oscillator circuit where a resonator is connected between
the XIN and XOUT pins, oscillation does not occur because a flexible cable, buffer IC and other
devices are used between the evaluation MCU and the target system.
• Make note of the fact that if the internal oscillator circuit of the emulator is selected when
the MCU is stopping, the oscillation does not stop.
(4) DBC, single-step and BRK instruction interrupt vector table addresses
As the emulator uses the DBC, single-step and BRK instruction interrupt vector table addresses,
when reading these addresses, the downloaded addresses cannot be read.
(5) A-D conversion
As a flexible cable, a pitch converter board and other devices are used between the evaluation
MCU and the target system, some characteristics are slightly different from those of the actual
MCU. Therefore, be sure to evaluate your system with an evaluation MCU. Before starting
mask production, evaluate your system and make final confirmation with an ES (Engineering
Sample) version MCU.
