Adam Taylor, author of the "MicroZed Chronicles" on how to use the Xilinx Zynq and Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC, discusses more advanced debugging using µC/Probe with Zync-based systems.
In my last blog, I showed you how to use Micrium’s μC/Probe to debug Zynq-based embedded systems in real time without impacting target operation. The example I presented last time demonstrated the basics of how you can use μC/Probe to monitor variables in target memory. While this capability is very useful, μC/Probe has advanced debugging features that can aid us even further to debug our design and provides us with a real-time user interface that lets us control and monitor internal system variables using a variety of graphical interface components.
I want to explore some of these advanced features in this blog including:
- Modifying global variables on the target processor during run time.
- Implementing an eight-channel oscilloscope, allowing us to monitor multiple variables at run time.
