3.7. Creating a target-specific Advanced_Information group

If your development platform has multiple targets, then you might want to specify different connection attributes for each target. You do this by creating target-specific groups in the Advanced_Information block of the Debug Configuration. For example, you might want to perform OS-aware debugging on one target only.

The development platform used as the example in the following procedure contains an:

A DSTREAM or RealView ICE Debug Interface unit is used to connect to the development platform. Also, semihosting is to be enabled on the ARM920T only. The Debug Configuration defining the debugging environment is called AP-920T-7TDMI.

To create target-specific Advanced_Information groups:

  1. Select Target → Connect to Target... from the Code window main menu to open the Connect to Target window.

  2. Locate the required Debug Configuration:

    1. Select Configuration from the Grouped By list.

    2. Expand the Debug Interface containing the Debug Configuration of interest. For this example, expand RealView ICE.

    3. Make sure that all targets are disconnected on the Debug Configuration.

  3. Right-click on the required Debug Configuration to display the context menu. For this example, right-click on AP-920T-7TDMI.

  4. Select Properties... from the context menu to open the Connection Properties dialog box.

  5. Click the Advanced button to open the Connection Properties window.

    The settings group for the Debug Configuration entry is selected, and the contents are displayed in the right pane.

  6. Create a target-specific Advanced_Information block for the target. For example, create a block called ARM920T_0.


    Because the two processors used in the example are from two different families, you can set the group name to ARM9 instead. However, if you do this, and later add another processor from the ARM9 family to your development platform, the settings in the ARM9 group are used when you connect to both ARM9 processors.

  7. Select File → Save and Close from the menu to save your changes and close the Connection Properties window.

  8. Click the OK button to close the Connection Properties dialog box.
