Debugger Modules

In IDA Pro all debugger modules are available.

Unsupported Processors

If your target processor is not included in the list above, you have two options:

  1. Ask us to add support for the processor sometime in the future: we welcome your feedback about which processors should be added to IDA Pro.
  2. Use our SDK and develop your own (free to all, but unsupported).
