The primary shortcoming of ROM emulators is the inability to diagnose the processor to boot ROM area.
Both devices have 16Kbytes of boot ROM to assist in In-System Programming (ISP), as well as In-Application Programming (IAP) for updating code in the field.

The device provides a glueless 32-bit bus master interface for the CardBus along with a boot ROM interface.
The independent asynchronous boot block eliminates the need for embedded or discrete boot ROM while still enabling code upgradability in the field," said Franklin.

During the second quarter, boot capability will be added, allowing the DiskOnChip 2000 TSOP to function as a start-up disk and replace the system's Boot ROM, thus saving cost and board space.
