Debugging Standalone Applications in the SDSoC IDE

Use the following procedure to debug a standalone (bare-metal) application project using the SDSoC™ IDE.

  1. Select SDDebug as the active build configuration and build the project.
  2. Make sure the board is connected to your host computer using the JTAG Debug connector.
  3. Select the Debug As option to create a new debug-configuration
    You now switch to the SDSoC environment debug perspective which allows you to start, stop, step, set breakpoints, examine variables and memory, and perform various other debug operations.
    In the SDSoC IDE toolbar, click on the Debug icon, which provides a shortcut to the procedure described above.
