7.7. Setting up software cross-triggering

You set up cross-triggering for processors in a multiprocessor system when you want one processor to affect the behavior of other processors, without user intervention. For example, you might want all processors to stop when a breakpoint is activated.

The software cross-triggering controls are available for all connected processors, including processors that support hardware cross-triggering. You can also use the hardware cross-triggering controls if required, or have mixed hardware and software cross-triggering.

Note

If your hardware supports more complex cross-triggering controls, you must set these manually. Alternatively, you can create a script to set the appropriate configuration. For example, if your hardware supports the Embedded Cross Trigger unit, see:
