Hardware Debugger M1.3: Debug operations do not affect target board.


Keywords: debug, cable, communication

Urgency: Standard

General Description:

If the DEBUG commands do not appear to have any affect to the target
board/device, then the Hardware Debugger may have lost communication
with the cable. In such an event no message is displayed to indicate
that communication has been lost.


To re-establish cable communications execute the Menu command Cable ->
Reset. If communications cannot be re-established a pop-up message
will indicate this. If the cable is successfully reset, then the
design may have to be Downloaded again to resume normal operation.
