1.1.14. Comms Channel view

The EmbeddedICE® logic in ARM processors contains a Debug Communications Channel (DCC). This enables data to be passed between the target and the RealView Debugger using the JTAG port and a protocol converter without stopping the program flow or entering debug state. The Comms Channel view enables you to communicate with the target over DCC.

Figure 1.11 shows an example:
