1.2.9. Debug and test interfaces

The JTAG connector enables JTAG hardware debugging equipment, such as Multi-ICE or RealView ICE, to be connected to the baseboard. The JTAG equipment enables you to debug ARM-based applications.

The progcards utility can control the JTAG signals from the on-board USB debug port controller and enable downloading images to the FPGA and PLDs. See JTAG and USB debug port support.

An Integrated Logic Analyzer (ILA) connector enables debugging the baseboard and Logic Tile FPGA designs at the same time as the JTAG connector is being used to debug application code. An example of an ILA debugging device is the Xilinx ChipScope.

Two trace connectors are present on the baseboard for accessing processor cores implemented on Logic Tiles. Attached Core Tiles might also have their own trace connectors if trace is supported by the processor test chip fitted on the Core Tile.
