C166 and XC166 Cross Development
Cosmic's toolchain for Infineon's C166 and XC166 microcontroller
families is part of a complete and uniform product line incorporating
over 20 years of innovative design and development. All
Cosmic products include one year of technical support and
Integrated Development Environment
All Cosmic C Cross Compilers for Windows include IDEA
- Cosmic's own integrated development environment which
is preconfigured for the C166/XC166 family of processors.
IDEA is designed specifically for developing embedded applications
with Cosmic compilers. IDEA integrates an editor, project
manager, graphical smart build/make facility, program analyzer,
link file generator, documentation manager and ZAP debugger
into one easy to use environment running under Windows
2000 and XP.

Third Party IDE Integration
Most Cosmic compilers can be easily integrated in third party IDEs such as Borland Codewright and RistanCase Development Assistant for C.

The C Compiler package includes: an integrated development
environment with optimizing ANSI-C cross compiler, macro
assembler, linker, librarian, hex file generator, object
format converters, debugging support utilities, run-time
library source code, and a multi-pass compiler command
driver. The compiler also supports non-intrusive C source-level
debugging with Cosmic's line of ZAP debuggers and most
3rd party hardware..

C166/XC166 Specific features include:
- ANSI and ISO C Compiler
The Cosmic C166/XC166 compiler follows ANSI and ISO rules
and conventions. All code and libraries are optimized specifically for
the C166/XC166 processor core.
C166 and XC166 derivatives and
sub-families are supported (also
supports ST10 and Super10).
- Support for MAC in C
Using the "mac" variable
in C the compiler will automatically generate MAC
- Reentrant and Recursive
All code is fully reentrant and recursive using standard ANSI stack frame conventions.
- BIT Variables
In addition to Standard ANSI C bit fields, CX166
supports bit variables using the _Bool keyword providing an easy and efficient
bit packing mechanism for true/false flags.
- In-line Assembly
The compiler provides three convenient methods for adding assembly code inside a C program. Includes an argument passing mechanism.
- Absolute Listings
Optionally produce relocatable and/or absolute C interspersed with the corresponding Assembly listings.
- IEEE-754 Floating Point
Supports IEEE single floating point formats with full ANSI libraries (Source code included).
- Moveable Code Feature
Moveable code feature is designed to make RAM based code like boot loaders and programmers easy to create and maintain. The Linker automatically creates a segment in ROM to store moveable code. Then at run time, use the supplied library function to relocate and copy the moveable code into RAM for execution.
- Check Sum Feature
Easy to use check sum facility and library (Source included) allow users to quickly implement an efficient check sum on any or all sections. Check sum calculation and insertion is transparently managed by the linker.
- Mixed C and Assembly
Cosmic tools support mixed C and Assembly applications. Including Assembler support for C #defines and #includes so C and assembly language modules may share common constants and macros.
- Host Independent Formats
The Cosmic relocatable and absolute object formats are host independent. This allows user's on PC, SUN and HP to share objects for linking and debugging.
- IEEE-695 Debug Support
The Cosmic compiler suite supports the IEEE-695 standard debug format used by many popular emulators and logic analyzers.
- In-Circuit Emulator Compatibility
CX166 is compatible with emulators from Lauterbach.
- Flexible Compiler Interface
Cosmic compilers are designed to be powerful and flexible so they can be used with virtually any environment. Use Cosmic's own IDEA interface or use your favorite editor, make utility and/or source code control system - It's Your Choice!!
ZAP is a full featured source-level debugger available
for Windows. ZAP's intuitive graphical interface is uniform
for all targets and execution environments. ZAP is available
in 2 versions* for the C166/XC166. (1) ZAP SIM Debugger
with integrated processor Simulator, (2) ZAP monitor-based
debugger for FORTH development boards (not yet released)
