Data Breakpoint Configuration Window for Simulator Tool

The above configuration window is displayed for any device architecture when a simulator tool is selected.


You can enter a specific address in RAM (e.g.: 0x8004) directly or an expression that evaluates to an address in RAM (e.g.: &x). Make sure the expression you enter represents the address of the data to monitor.

Note: Data breakpoints on local variables can result in false hits due to reuse of stack memory. Suggestion to declare it as static for debugging purpose.

Byte Count
