4.3. RealView ICE Connection Sequence

If you’ve purchased an optional RVI unit, to connect the RVI run control unit to your host computer and to the target hardware, perform the following steps. Refer to your RealView ICE and RealView Trace v1.5 User Guide for more detailed information.

  1. Ensure the RealView ICE software is installed on the host computer. See the RealView ICE Installation Guide for information on how to do this.

  2. Connect the host computer to the RealView ICE run control unit, using either the USB port or a TCP/IP network connection, as required.

  3. Connect the RealView ICE run control unit to the target hardware, using the appropriate cable.

  4. If you are using RealView Trace, you have to connect the RealView Trace unit to the RealView ICE unit and to the target board.

  5. Power up the target hardware.

  6. Connect the external power supply to the RealView ICE run control unit, and to the mains electricity.

  7. Switch on the power supply. The power LED and the expansion bus power LED both switch on.

  8. The RealView ICE run control unit firmware is based on an embedded Linux kernel, so the unit takes a short time to boot up and establish either a network or USB connection.

  9. If your RealView ICE unit is connected to a network, you must now run the Config IP application to configure the network settings. This is described in the chapter on configuring RealView ICE networking in RealView ICE and RealView Trace v1.5 User Guide.


    You have only to perform the network configuration once.

    If the RealView ICE unit is powered up with only a USB connection, it uses an IP address of However, if a network cable is also attached, the IP address associated with the USB connection is the IP address that you have assigned to the RealView ICE unit, or that it obtains from a DHCP server.

    If you have any problems connecting your RealView ICE, contact your supplier.
