5.3.2. Adding and configuring RDI targets

RDI targets are automatically installed for ARM products such as Multi-ICE. RealView Debugger also includes DLLs to enable you to add an Angel debug target. The debugger provides the RDI Target List dialog box where you can add more RDI targets or configure targets detected automatically.

Adding RDI targets

If you have a third-party RDI component that uses RDI 1.5.1, you can use the RDI Target List dialog box to add it (see The RDI Target List dialog box).

To add an RDI target:

  1. Display the RDI Target List dialog box, as described in Displaying the RDI Target List configuration dialog box.

  2. Click Add DLL... to display the Select RDI DLL dialog box.

  3. Locate the required DLL, then click Open. The Create New RDI Target dialog box, shown in Figure 5.8, is displayed, and the Short Name and Description fields are set to the DLL filename and the path, respectively.

    Create New RDI Target dialog box

    To specify the new target, enter:

    Short Name

    The target name that is to be shown in the RDI Target List dialog box, the Connection Control window, and in the Connection Properties window, for example CONNECTION=My_RDI_Target.

    Description

    The target description as shown in the RDI Target List dialog box, the Connection Control window, and in the Connection Properties window, for example Description=ARM JTAG debug interface (parallel port).

    Click OK to confirm your entries and to add the target to the display list.

  4. Change the Short Name and Description fields as required.

  5. Click OK. The new target is added to the RDI Target List, and is enabled.

Configuring RDI targets

RealView Debugger does not support connecting to multiple RDI targets at the same time. You can, however, configure your target connections in advance and then connect to each in turn.

Within a single Multi-ICE connection, you can connect to multiple processors provided they are all on the same scan chain. You must have the appropriate RealView Debugger multiprocessor license to make multiple connections.

You can configure your RDI target either:

  • from the Connection Control window. Highlight the entry, for example the second-level entry Multi-ICE, and select Configure Device Info... from the RDI Target menu

  • from the RDI Target List dialog box, shown in Figure 5.7. Highlight the entry in the display list and click Configure....

Note

If you cannot see your RDI target in the Connection Control window then you must add it using the RDI Target List dialog box. See Adding RDI targets for details on how to do this.
