10.14 Adding a configuration database to DS-5

You can add configuration databases from other DS-5 sources into your installation of DS-5.


An existing configuration database.


  1. Launch DS-5, and from the main menu, select Window > Preferences.
  2. Expand the DS-5 configuration group.
  3. Select Configuration Database.
  4. Click Add... and in the Add configuration database location dialog:
    1. Give a Name for the configuration database, for example, MyConfigDB.
    2. Click Browse and select the database.
    3. Click OK to close the dialog box.
  5. If necessary, change the order of the database. DS-5 processes the databases from top to bottom with the information in the lower databases replacing information in the higher databases. For example, if you want to produce a modified Cortex-A15 processor definition with different registers, then those changes can be added to a new database that resides lower down in the list.
    1. Select the new database.
    2. Click Up or Down as required.

    After you have successfully added your configuration database, you can view your platforms in the Debug Configuration dialog, under the Manufacturer area you specified.
