System Navigator for Turbo 186 Cores
System Navigator tools for VAutomation Turbo186 Core and
Lantronix DSTni-LX / DSTni-EX Processors

The System Navigator supports the family of Turbo 186 cores used in many SoCs from various suppliers including Lantronix. VAutomation was acquired by ARC International in 2000 and the core licensing has been discontinued, but processors based on the design are available from Lantronix and Grid Connect.

The System Navigator for Turbo 186 cores is designed to support the special features and integrated peripherals of the synthesizable core. Special "silicon hooks" for System-on-Chip development are integrated into the synthesizable IP model for the core. These On-Chip Instrumentation (OCI™) extensions allow FS2 to provide a powerful debug tool with advanced features at a competitive price.

The System Navigator is contained in a compact chassis that connects to the target system using a standard 10 pin connector. It requires access to only 4 pins in the core processor. The system runs on a Windows® 2000/XP PC over a USB 2.0 port (10/100 Ethernet optional). An optional graphical, source level debugger program, from Paradigm Systems provides an intuitive, easy to use interface and complete package of compiler, linker, and locator tools.
