that is being debugged, for example:
- Reading/Writing registers.
- Setting breakpoints.
- Reading from memory.
- Writing to memory.
NoteA debug adapter or connection is not the application being debugged, nor the debugger itself.
Supported ARM® debug hardware adapters include:
Supported debug connections include:
- Ethernet to gdbserver
- Undodb-server for Linux application rewind
Supported third-party debug hardware adapters include:
- Altera USB-Blaster II
- Yokogawa Digital Computer Corporation adviceLUNA (JTAG ICE)
DS-5 Debugger can connect to Altera Arria V SoC and Cyclone V
SoC boards using Altera USB-Blaster and USB-Blaster II debug units.
To enable the connections, ensure that the environment variable
QUARTUS_ROOTDIR is set and contains the
path to the Altera Quartus tools installation.
On Windows, this environment variable is usually set by the Quartus tools
installer. On Linux, you might have to manually set the environment
variable to the Altera Quartus tools installation path. For example,
For information on installing device drivers for USB-Blaster and
USB-Blaster II, consult your Altera Quartus tools documentation.
