6.5.2. Connection instructions

Before updating the software, you must connect up the RealView ICE and RealView Trace hardware. To do this:

  1. Ensure that the RealView ICE unit is disconnected from the power supply and from the target board.

    Warning

    Failure to remove the power from the RealView ICE unit before connecting it to the RealView Trace unit can cause damage to the hardware and/or personal injury.

  2. Remove the plastic ventilation grill from the top of the RealView ICE unit by unclipping it.

  3. Screw the four 16mm plastic spacers onto the four 8mm plastic spacers exposed inside the RealView ICE unit, as shown in Figure 6.1.

    Figure 6.1. Positioning of 16mm plastic spacers


  4. Using the four lengthened threaded inserts as guides, plug the RealView Trace unit into the RealView ICE unit. Apply downward pressure directly above the two connectors to ensure a positive fit.

  5. Screw the four 8mm plastic spacers onto the four threaded inserts exposed through the PCB inside the RealView Trace unit. This fastens the two units together, making the assembly safe for transportation. Figure 6.2 shows a profile view of the connected units.

  6. Clip the plastic ventilation grill that you removed from the RealView ICE unit onto the top of the RealView Trace unit.

  7. For up to 16-bit trace port widths, connect one end of the interface cable to the RealView Trace’s 60-way trace probe connector, and the other end of the cable to the trace probe.

    Connect one end of the JTAG cable or LVDS probe to the respective JTAG socket on the RealView ICE run control unit. Connect the other end to the 20-way JTAG header on the target hardware. Figure 6.3 Shows a typical system for RealView Trace.

    If your target board does not have separate trace and RealView ICE sockets, use the RealView ICE socket on the trace probe as shown in Figure 6.4.

    Plug the trace probe into the trace connector on the target board.

    32-bit trace port widths are supported by RealView Trace 2. Connect the split-ribbon cable to the 40- and 60-way trace probe connectors on the RealView Trace unit, and connect the other end of the cable to the 32-bit dual-Mictor probe.

    Plug the dual-Mictor probe into the vertical plug-in trace connector on the target board. See Figure 6.5.

    Extender cables can be used if necessary, and for more details on using these, see Dual-Mictor trace probe and Dual-Mictor trace probe characteristics.

  8. Connect the RealView ICE unit to a network shared by a PC running RealView Debugger.

  9. Power up the RealView ICE unit and the target board. The RealView Trace unit is powered from the RealView ICE unit, and does not require a separate power supply.

Warning

Do not obstruct the ventilation grills on the top of the RealView Trace unit or the bottom of the RealView ICE unit, because doing so causes the units to overheat.

Note

You can also use the following alternative connections:

  • use a USB cable to connect the RealView ICE run control unit directly to your host workstation

  • connect one end of the JTAG cable or LVDS probe to the trace probe JTAG socket.
