Selecting Microprocessors

From Arcade Tester AR81
Jump to: navigation, search

Before any testing is performed on a UUT, the correct microprocessor must be selected otherwise false results will be given and also the tester may even lock up as it will be expecting signals not present.

By default it is set for a Z80 type of processor. This is indicated at the top of the main boot up screen. To change the processor, simply click the processor required. Effect is instant and will remain set until changed or the tester software reloaded.

Supported processors are at present: Z80, 8080, 8085, 6809E and 6502/RP2A03. Future ones will appear at the top with newer releases of software.

A Link cable can be made up using the pins on the front connectors and signals appropriate to the processor required can be connected. Full list can be found in section 8 of this manual.
