Upgrading an LVDS probe

You can use the RVI Update utility to install an upgrade to your Low Voltage Differential Signaling (LVDS) probe. This upgrade procedure is necessary only if you want to make use of the Serial Wire Debug (SWD) feature. This is a once-only upgrade that is required if your LVDS probe was released with RVI v3.0, because this type of probe is not SWD-capable.

To upgrade your LVDS probe:

  1. In the RVI Update utility, select Upgrade LVDS Probe... from the RVI menu.

  2. You are prompted to confirm your option to upgrade the probe. Select Yes, and the RVI Update utility begins the update process, during which you are reminded not to disconnect the probe, nor to power off your debug hardware unit, until the process is completed. This is shown in the following figure:

    To perform the upgrade you must have v3.1 firmware or later installed on your debug hardware unit.

    You must also have an LVDS probe that is at least at v2.

    If you have a v1 probe (board number HPI-0090x), you must replace it with a later version. If so, contact ARM for more information.
