3.3.5. Linking one or more board groups to multiple processor connections

If you want to use RealView Debugger to debug a multiprocessor target, where some of the processor configurations are different, you do so by defining multiple Advanced_Information groups using names that match the processor name. These then appear in the Connection Control window.

For example, if you have a single Integrator CM920T, RealView ICE names the connection ARM920T_0. The _0 in the name indicates that this processor is on the first TAP position, that is position 0. If, in any BOARD, CHIP or COMPONENT, you create an Advanced_Information group called ARM920T_0, the entries in that group only apply to that processor.

If you have two CM920T boards connected to an Integrator motherboard, RealView ICE names them ARM920T_0 and ARM920T_1. If you create two Advanced_Information groups called ARM920T_0 and ARM920T_1, shown in Figure 3.13, you can configure each board independently. Using the Default group, you can also have Advanced_Information that applies to both processors linked to the connection.
