Here you can change various kernel analysis options 1 and options 2, change the processor type (if the processor module supports several types), or the assembler style. If the current processor has options, there will also be a button to change processor-specific options. If the current processor supports memory mapping, there will also be a button to change the memory mapping ranges.
