This release note covers the TASKING Embedded Debugger v1.0r2.
For the latest information, please visit the Embedded Debugger support website.
The TASKING Embedded Debugger is a real-time, source-level debugger which is fully integrated into Eclipse. It is a low cost alternative for high end debuggers. It supports a wide range of TriCore devices via low cost probes as well as simulators on Windows systems, in case no physical hardware is available.
The TASKING Embedded Debugger comes with TASKING Eclipse plugins, but you can also install it into your existing Eclipse environment.
The TASKING Embedded Debugger supports the TriCore, PCP, 8051, HSM and MCS architectures. Simulators for all these core architectures are included.
The list of open issues for v1.0r2 can be found on the internet.
For a quick start, go to the Start menu and open the 'Embedded Debugger User Guide' from the sub-folder 'Manuals'. Section 2.4 'Using the Sample Projects' is a good starting point. After you have a sample project, read Chapter 3 'Debugging your Application' and you can immediately start debugging.
With this release, hardware debug support is added for the following Infineon Application Kits:
The Devices view shows which target boards are connected to your PC. Some target boards contain a power supply chip which needs to be initialized every time after power-on, before hardware debugging is started. This initialization is necessary before starting a debug session, otherwise communication is not possible. Target boards can be initialized manually or automatically. See section 4.3.13 'Devices View' in the 'Embedded Debugger User Guide' for more information.
The Add Global Variables dialog now provides the ability to search for variable names by using wild cards.
TASKING products are protected with TASKING license management software.
You need a license key when you install a TASKING product on a computer. When you order a TASKING product from Altium or one of its distributors, a license key will be sent to you by email or on paper.
See Obtaining a License on our website for more information.
If you have ordered a TASKING product with a floating license, you can have it serviced by the Remote TASKING License Server (the most convenient solution) or through a Local TASKING License Server (in case you have no external network access for example). Consult your Altium representative for assistance on deciding what the best setup would be for your situation.
If you like to setup up a local license server, we kindly refer you for more information to Support for TASKING License Management System (TLM) on our website. Here you can also download the Local TASKING License Server package.
It is advised that you install the Local TASKING License Server before you install products that require this server.
