About platform detection and selection

Your debug hardware unit provides support for a number of development boards.

The following methods are available for platform detection and selection:

You can also create your own platform files and add them to the list of available platforms.


The platform file contains information on the scan chain of a platform at the time the file was saved. However, if you create a new scan chain configuration with the devices in a different order, then the saved platform file is not auto-detected. However, you can still manually select the platform configuration from the list of available platforms.

For more information on the various platforms supported, see also the Release Notes of the host software for your debug hardware unit.
