The Stopwatch Cycle Counter (32-bit wide instruction cycle counter) has the ability to perform the existing basic instruction cycle counting (all instruction cycles counted) that exists on standard Enhanced Midrange parts.
Note: The count units are in instruction cycles, not in instructions (as not all instructions execute in a single cycle).
The stopwatch is available under Window>Debugging>Stopwatch. The stopwatch uses two (2) breakpoint resources.
