4.4. Setting the connection options

Select Real-Time System Model from the drop down menu at the top of the Connection tab of the run configuration window and use the drop-down menus to choose the hardware that you want to simulate.

From the Model drop-down menu, you can choose any of the predefined ARM models to run on, or select a custom option.

The following pre-defined models are available:

If none of these predefined options match your target architecture, you can use your own customized RTSM. Place your RTSM files in the directory to which the system variable ARM_PROFILER_RTSM_PATH points. Any RTSM files found by the ARM Profiler will be added to the Model drop-down menu. You need a licensed copy of RealView System Generator to create custom RTSMs.


The ARM Profiler works with RTSMs created using RealView System Generator 4.0 Service Pack 1 and newer.

Although it is possible to build a multiprocessor RTSM using RealView System Generator, the ARM Profiler does not support them at this time.

If you are profiling on a multi-core model, use the Core drop-down menu to choose which of the cores to profile. The ARM Profiler can not profile multiple cores during a single profiling run.
