The device hierarchy in the PCE view shows the devices on the platform.
In the PCE view, you can add or remove devices to configure the platform for how you want to debug the platform. This shows the device hierarchy of an example platform. DS-5 Debugger might not autodetect all the devices on the platform. If you want to use these undetected devices in the debug session, you must first add them to the device hierarchy and configure them appropriately.
Alternatively, if you only want a simple debug session and do not need some of the devices that have been autodetected, then you can remove them from the device hierarchy.
The context menu for the device hierarchy contains:
You can add a device as a sibling or as a child, by drag-and-dropping from the Devices Panel to the appropriate place in the device hierarchy.
Any device that you add or remove from the hierarchy changes the topology of the SoC. You must ensure that the topology is appropriate for your platform. After adding new devices, you can configure the devices in the right-hand pane in the PCE view.
