C.3.2. Board file (brd file)

RealView Debugger uses a board file to access information about the debugging environment and the debug targets available to you. You can use RealView Debugger with the default board file that is installed for you in your debugger home directory. See Defining the home directory for more information.

If you work with a variety of targets and connections you might set up and save several board files, so that you can easily switch RealView Debugger from one to another. You can change the board file being used for the current session in two ways:


To ensure that configuration information is maintained, do not change the active board file if:

  • the Connection Properties window is open

  • you are connected to a debug target.
