17.3. Creating new target descriptions

This section describes how to create variations of existing configurations and new target descriptions. Creating new target descriptions provides these advantages:

Creating new target descriptions involves these steps:

  1. Create a BOARD, CHIP, or COMPONENT group for the configuration. This requires the following steps:

  2. Define the target using the configuration items in the group. This is described in Example descriptions.

  3. Link the new target definition to the CONNECTION that the target uses. This is described in Linking a board, chip, or component to a connection.


Do not configure the board file when the debugger is connected to a target.
