3.4.3. Making a connection

This tutorial uses the RealView Instruction Set Simulator (RVISS) Debug Interface. However, if you want to connect to a hardware target, first make sure your debug hardware and target system are powered on, and configured as described in your debug hardware User Guide.

To connect to a debug target, do the following:

  1. Select Connect to Target... from the Target menu to display the Connect to Target window. An example is shown in Figure 3.2.

  2. Select Configuration from the Grouped By drop-down list.

    Note

    It is recommended that you add and configure a Debug Configuration using the Configuration grouping.

  3. Expand the RealView Instruction Set Simulator (RVISS) Debug Interface. The RVISS, RVISS_1, and RVISS_2 Debug Configurations are available.

  4. Expand the RVISS Debug Configuration to show the target processor available for the configuration. For the RVISS Debug Configuration, the target is called ARM7TDMI.

  5. Double-click on the ARM7TDMI target processor to connect.

With the connection established, your Code window is updated, shown in Figure 3.5:

The default configuration files installed as part of the base product enable you to connect to an ARM7TDMI®, ARM926EJ-S™, and an ARM1176JZF-S™ simulated core using RVISS.
