10.5 About the Platform Configuration Editor view
The Platform Configuration Editor (PCE) view enables you to create or modify debug configurations for connecting to your platform.
In the PCE view, you can:
Review the devices on your development platform.
- Modify device information or add new devices that the debugger was unable to
Configure your debug hardware unit, and target-related features that are
appropriate to correctly debug on your development platform.
- Review or modify the debug activities for the various processors on the
Build and save the platform configuration to an RDDI configuration file. The
RDDI configuration file is used by the debugger to connect to the target
processors on your development platform.
PCE enables you to easily specify the debug topology by defining the
connections between the various processors, CoreSight components, and debug IP on the
platform. This enables DS-5 Debugger to
create the appropriate DTSL scripts that are necessary for the debug connection to the
NoteDS-5 Debugger connects to the platform to autodetect the devices on the
platform. DS-5 Debugger does not maintain the connection to the target after reading the
device information from the platform.
