Debugging

Postby rp181 » Tue May 18, 2010 12:37 am

The XC-1A says:
the USB cable provided which also provides a JTAG interface between the card and XMOS Tools
Does this mean real-time debugging is available on the PC?

Yes. You can set breakpoints, read and change register values on the cores, single step, etc.

Thank You. So what is the difference between this and the XTag?

XTAG is simply a 'play' on XMOS + JTAG. Our XTAG devices are simply USB to JTAG interfaces. The XTAG1 is based on a FTDI product and the new XTAG2 product utilises the XMOS L1 to handle this interfacing.

On two occasions I have been asked, 'Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?' I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question.
