An event combiner monitors multiple event inputs (currently breakpoints only) and can generate a halt or a trigger out that is based on combinations and sequences of those inputs.
Emulation headers have four (4) Event Combiners and each combines eight (8) combinational or sequential events into a single event trigger. Individual breakpoints may be grouped into sequences, logical ‘AND’ lists, or a nested combination of these for more complex control. The Event Combiners were modeled after the legacy MPLAB® ICE 2000 complex triggers.
Set up the following complex breakpoints through selections in the Breakpoint window (Window>Debugging>Breakpoints).
