GUIDELINE: Decide the software debug tools.

The Arm* DS-5* for Intel® SoC FPGA Edition includes a fully featured Eclipse-based debugging environment. There are also other debugging tool offerings from third party providers such as Lauterbach T32.

The debug tools require a JTAG connection to the SoC FPGA device. The connection could be achieved in a couple of ways:
  • An embedded Intel® FPGA Download Cable II could be available on-board like it is on the Intel® Arria® 10 SoC Development Kit.
  • External JTAG hardware may be required when using the Lauterbach T32 tools.
