Can I connect Model Debugger / DS-5 Debugger to the Foundation model?

Applies to: DS-5, Fast Models


For bare metal debugging on the Fast Models (similar to JTAG on hardware), Model Debugger and DS-5 Debugger use the Component Architecture Debug Interface (CADI) to control the target . 

The Foundation model does not support CADI, so cannot be debugged in this way.

The Foundation model supports Ethernet and serial connections that allow remote debugging with debugger such as gdbserver, they can only be used once the OS is running.

This is described in the DS-5 User Guide .

The Fast Model product or Fixed Virtual Platforms do support CADI connections and can be used to debug low-level software.
