5.1. About the Debug Configuration tutorial

This tutorial shows how to set up the Debug Configuration for a simple Ethernet router. The Debug Configuration references a BCD file that:

Although the tutorial uses the RealView Instruction Set Simulator (RVISS) Debug Interface, the procedures described can be performed for any Debug Interface.

The tutorial in this chapter modifies the board file stored in your RealView Debugger home directory. By default, this is called rvdebug.brd. Debug Interface configuration files might also be stored in this directory, for example .rvc files or .smc files.

It is recommended that you back up this directory before starting the examples, so that you can restore your original configuration later.


The example used in this tutorial is to demonstrate the features available for creating custom memory maps, registers, and peripherals. It is not intended to be a real example.
