#189960 - debugging embedded processors
Responding to: Richard Erlacher's previous message
Richard Erlacher said:
I'm really curious how one should approach the situation wherein one has to debug what's going on in the code while interacting with the custom logic.


OK, I've done the Xilinx EDK with both MicroBlaze softcore and PowerPC hardcore, and I'm finishing up an Actel design which has an embedded 8051 soft core.

In all cases, the processor cores have debug capability (single-step, variable watch, everything you expect), and the vendors provide firmware debug tools which talk to that debug core over JTAG.

It works.
