JTAG and Low Level Debug of SoCs for the World

Registered by Zach Pfeffer on 2011-04-28

This session will talk about JTAG and other low-level debugging tools.

Topics:

1. Improving Ubuntu hosted JTAG tools
2. Open JTAG script development
3. Available JTAG platforms.
    1. Lauterbach (Spectrum Digital)
    2. Code Composer
    3. Wiggler/Raven
    4. Open JTAG
    5. Corelis
4. Low level logging
5. Hardware assisted debugging interfaces.

Possible Action Items from the discussion:

1. Extend OpenOCD for all ARM architectures.

2. Implement OpenOCD frontends that provide higher levels of abstraction and added functionality.

3. Extend Eclipse to allow OpenOCD to work automatically.

4. Document OpenOCD usage on our platforms.

5. Implement trace.

6. Document supported JTAG devices.

[pfefferz]
[IDEA, David Gilbert] put JTAG in the validation build farm instead of web power switches so that units can be reset and debuged at the chip level.
