Adding new platforms

Debug Hardware Config is preconfigured to support a number of platforms, but you can add support for more platforms by creating your own platform files. You can also provide a name and the manufacturer details for the new platform.

To create a new configuration file, you must:

  1. Configure a scan chain for the new platform.

  2. Make any changes to the device settings that are required.

  3. Make any changes to the advanced settings that are required.

  4. Make any changes to the trace settings that are required.

  5. Specify a new platform name and its manufacturer in the Export As Platform dialog box. To do this, select Export platform file... from the File menu.

  6. In the Export As Platform dialog box, enter the new name and manufacturer details of the platform in the Board Name and Manufacturer fields, respectively. The following figure shows an example:

    The name and manufacturer details of the platform are used to name the new platform files, and are displayed in the Select Platform dialog box for the new platform.

    On Windows, the platformFiles directory, shown in this figure, is located in My Documents\ARM\rvconfig\platformFiles.

    On Linux, it is located in ~/.rvconfig/platformFiles.

  7. Click OK.
