1.5.4. Cross-triggering

Cross-triggering is a feature that allows one processor to stop another processor. For example, when a breakpoint activates and stops a processor, then the other processors that are participating in cross-triggering also stop.

Usually, when you use cross-triggering, you set the Out trigger for one processor, and the In trigger for the other processors. Therefore, if a breakpoint is activated on the processor with the Out trigger, then those processors with the In trigger set also stop. However, a breakpoint that activates on any processor with the In trigger does not stop any other processor.

RealView Debugger enables you to set up cross-triggering using the Synchronization Control window.
