Keil Software Inc. has rolled out uVision3, an integrated development environment (IDE) and a key component in its model PK51 and other development kits covering a wide range of 8051 MCU variants. Besides adding source code outlining, a function navigator, template editing, and incremental search functions, the IDE incorporates the company's new C51 Version 8 compiler.

In addition, uVision3 features a configuration wizard that cuts the time needed to generate start-up code and configuration files. Also, a built-in simulator models the target MCU, including instruction set, on-chip peripherals and external signals. A logic analyzer, also part of uVision3, juxtaposes program variables with state changes on the MCU's I/O pins and peripherals.

Among the latest 8051-type MCUs the uVision3 works with are Analog Devices Inc.'s ADuC83x and ADuC84x and Infineon Technology's XC866.

Customers holding maintenance agreements can download the uVision3 IDE incorporating the C51 Version 8 compiler from the company's website. The PK51 developers kit, which includes the upgrades, sells for $2,895.
