I have a binary dump from a 76F0219F1 NEC processor. I tried to open it in Ghidra, but I don't see any NEC in the list of supported processors. Does Ghidra support NEC processors? Is there anything I can do to open the NEC binary dump in Ghidra?

  • Probably unsupported but what CPU core is that? 78K, V850, something else?

  • @Igor, its an automotive MCU on V850 core. Unfortunately, such processors not documented well... Commented Sep 6, 2019 at 12:11

Yes. If Ghidra does not currently support 76F0219F1 NEC processor architecture, Ghidra can be extended using SLEIGH. Here are some examples of how to do this:

  • I wasn't aware of that, thanks for this

No, unfortunately not. Look at this question, among the frequently asked questions.

According to that:

X86 16/32/64, ARM/AARCH64, PowerPC 32/64/VLE, MIPS 16/32/64/micro, 68xxx, Java / DEX bytecode, PA-RISC, PIC 12/16/17/18/24, Sparc 32/64, CR16C, Z80, 6502, 8051, MSP430, AVR8, AVR32 and the variants of these processors

are currently supported.


I'm uploaded some scratches to https://github.com/esaulenka/ghidra_v850

Currently it not usable, but any help are welcome!
