5.5. Creating the EtherRouter.bcd file

Create the EtherRouter.bcd file to define the memory mappings.

To create the EtherRouter.bcd file:

  1. Expand the group (*.bcd) Board/Chip Definitions to display the current list of target descriptions in the left pane.

  2. Right-click on the ...\aatemplate.bcd entry.

  3. Select Save As... from the context menu to open the Enter New Name dialog box. Figure 5.5 shows an example. The location displayed in this dialog box is the directory you last selected in the dialog box.

    Saving an existing BCD file with a new name

    By default, RealView Debugger searches for *.bcd files in the current working directory, then in your home directory, and then in your default settings directory identified by the RVDEBUG_SHADOW_DIR_ETC environment variable.

    In this example, save the new file in your RealView Debugger home directory.

  4. Enter the new filename. You must use the .bcd file extension when saving the file in your home directory.

    For this example, enter EtherRouter.bcd.

  5. Click Save.

    The New Name dialog box closes and the new name is displayed in the *.bcd list. Although the new BCD entry replaces the BCD entry you used to make the copy, the original file still exists.

  6. Refresh the list of BCD files:

    1. Select File → Save Changes from the menu to save the changes.

    2. Select File → Refresh from the menu. This refreshes the list of all current BCD files.

    3. Expand the group (*.bcd) Board/Chip Definitions to display the current list of BCD files. The list includes the new BCD file, that is EtherRouter.bcd.
