You can run software applications on a hardware target using SDK. The
program will run to termination. You can also stop the program at any time of
execution. The run workflow is described in the following diagram:
The workflow is made up of the following components:
- Executable ELF File: To debug your
application, you must use a compiled Executable and Linkable Format (ELF)
file. Refer to Build
configurations for more information.
- Run Configuration: To launch the run session, you must
create a run configuration in SDK. This configuration captures options
required to start a run session, including the executable name, processor
target to run and other information. Refer to Debug/Run configurations for more
- JTAG Settings: In most cases, SDK can automatically
detect the JTAG settings and does not require special settings. Refer to JTAG settings for more information.
- Run Console: This XMD console view enables you to
stop the program execution or terminate the run session.
You can repeat the cycle of modifying the code, building the executable, and
running the program in SDK. The program can be run on all supported debug targets. For more information, refer to Debug overview.
