Document Table of Contents Establishing Communication to Connections

After you have completed linking the project, you can establish communication to the connections.

  1. In the Tasks window,
    • Click Create Memory Interface Connection to create a connection to the external memory interface.
    • Click Create Efficiency Monitor Connection to create a connection to the efficiency monitor.
  2. To create a communication channel to a connection, select the desired connection from the displayed pulldown menu of connections, and click Ok. The toolkit establishes a communication channel to the connection, creates a report folder for the connection, and creates a folder of tasks for the connection.
    Note: By default, the connection and the reports and tasks folders are named according to the hierarchy path of the connection. If you want, you can specify a different name for the connection and its folders.
    Figure 132. EMIF Debug Toolkit - Create Memory Interface Connection

    The above figure shows the first EMIF IP core from both columns in the pulldown menu of Memory Interface. Referring to the previous example in Configuring Your EMIF IP for Use with the Debug Toolkit, the DDR4 component interface is the first EMIF IP core in column 2 and the DDR4 UDIMM interface is the first EMIF IP core in column 3.

  3. You can run any of the tasks in the folder for the connection; any resulting reports appear in the reports folder for the connection.
