C.1. Generic settings

There are many board file entries that are common to several types of settings, shown in Figure C.1.

Figure C.1. Viewing generic settings

Viewing generic settings

They are described in this section, and referenced from each setting type:

Connect_with

This includes the settings values:

Manufacturer

The name and the type of the connection.

The values show the available connection types, but you also require an appropriate license and the hardware to use them.

IOdevice

This field contains additional information about the hardware. It is not used in this release of the RealView® Debugger.

Speed

You can set the emulation speed for some emulators. It is not used in this release of the RealView Debugger.

Remote

Connections to remote targets are not supported in this release.

Advanced_Information

Provides extended target visibility details about the debug target system. This feature is described in The Advanced_Information block.

Configuration

Specifies a named device in the RealView ICE Micro Edition (RVI-ME) configuration file.

Auto_connect

Expands the list of devices on the target board. The list of devices comes from the .jtg file specified by the BOARD or CHIP group. The list of devices is shown in the Connection Control window. You can then connect to the devices with a single click.

Pre_Connect

Forces an order for device connection. When you connect to a device within the .jtg file, this ensures that one or more specific devices are connected first regardless of which device is selected for connection. This enables pre-setup of the specific devices to guarantee correct operation, such as initializations. You can specify the device(s) to connect to first by name, by processor name, or by processor type.

Description

Description for the related board, processor, or emulator.

Project

Opens one or more projects automatically when connecting to this board. If more than one device is in the scan chain and they are the same processor type, you must set the Specific_device field of the project to bind the project to the correct device(s). If the devices are different processor types, this is not necessary.

Disabled

Stops this entry from being shown in the Connection Control window.

Shared

Enables the sharing of target configurations for remote connections. This setting is not supported in this release.

BoardChip_name

Refers to the BOARD, CHIP, or COMPONENT group this is derived from, using its name. If the group has more than one name separated by a slash, such as ID/name, any of them can be used. If not specified, the name of this group is used to match a board or chip.

Family_select

Ensures the correct family member is used (for example, for memory mapping, and registers) when the silicon ID is ambiguous. Some chip families do not use different silicon IDs for different members of the family, and this field enables you to specify which you are using. Specify the family member using one of these formats:

name=family_name

This enables you to specify the name of the device. Use either the name defined in the .jtg file or the processor name. This is used when multiple chips are housed on the same target but from different families.

family_name

Choose from the preconfigured list.

silicon_id

Can be expressed as num.num.num or as a value.
