TASKING Embedded Debugger

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 Embedded Debugger is a 64-bit product.

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 v1.1r1 can be found on the internet.

Quick start

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.

New in v1.1r1

Hardware data breakpoints

Data breakpoints are now also supported on hardware, by means of the MCDS driver from Infineon. Data breakpoints on simulator or hardware share the same GUI in the TASKING Eclipse IDE.

Note: Hardware data breakpoints are not triggered while single stepping through an application.

Note: For beta-testing of the hardware data breakpoints feature a pre-release version of Infineon's mcdsdas.dll is required. This DLL will be made available to you by TASKING.

Setting function/data breakpoints without source code access

Breakpoints on functions and data objects can now be set independently of the availability of source code in a project. File and symbol information will be obtained from the ELF object file. File information is only present if the ELF object file contains debug information. If there is no debug information available, symbol data is obtained from the symbol table.

Support for newly introduced AURIX devices

With this release, the following newly introduced AURIX devices are supported:

Note: The pre-release version of Infineon's mcdsdas.dll is required for the TC377 device.

Support for latest Infineon DAS drivers

This release supports the latest drivers see: DAS drivers.
