How do I configure RealView-Debugger to use ETB trace?

Applies to: RealView Development Suite (RVDS)

Answer

Using RVConfig (accessible from the RealView-Debugger ‘Connection Control Window’), click the ‘Device Properties…’ button,

and ensure that the ‘ETB’ option is selected in the ‘Device Properties’ dialog. This will ensure RealView-Debugger uses the ETB when connecting to the analyser in the ‘Analysis’ window.

Without the device properties dialog ETB option, it will be assumed that a trace port analyser is being used, and attempts will be made to connect to it. This will result in failure messages in the debugger ‘Cmd’ tab, if a RealView-Trace unit is not present in your system. e.g.

> analyzer,connect
Initialising Trace Support
Warning: [ETMLABS] (768): TPA Error 1032 : [No error logged]
Warning: The ETM was not recognised
Error V20017 (Vehicle): Logic Analyzer is not setup. See Output log for details.

A successful ETB connection produces output similar to:
