This paper describes some of the tools and methods used for developing and debugging embedded subsystems at Fermilab. Specifically, these tools have been used for the Flying Wire project and are currently being employed for the New TECAR upgrade. The Flying Wire is a subsystem that swings a wire through the beam in order to measure luminosity and beam density distribution, and TECAR (Tevatron excitation controller and regulator) controls the power-supply ramp generation for the superconducting Tevatron accelerator at Fermilab. In both instances the subsystem hardware consists of a VME crate with one or more processors, shared memory and a network connection to the accelerator control system. Two real-time-operating systems are currently being used: VRTX for the Flying Wire system, and MTOS for New TECAR. The code which runs in these subsystems is a combination of C and assembler and is developed using the Microtec cross-development tools on a VAX 8650 running VMS. This paper explains how multiple debuggers are used to give the greatest possible flexibility from assembly to high-level debugging. Also discussed is how network debugging and network downloading can make a very effective and efficient means of finding bugs in the subsystem environment. The debuggers used are PROBE1, TRACER and the MTOS debugger.
