9.5.2. Selecting Software Debug Tools

You must decide which software debug tools to use and check with the tools provider to ensure support is available for Intel® Agilex™ devices in the desired time frame.

The Arm* DS* 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 Intel® SoC FPGA device. You can achieve a JTAG connection through:

  • An embedded Intel® FPGA Download Cable II like what is available in the Intel® Agilex™ SoC Development Kit.
  • External JTAG hardware similar to what may be required when using the Lauterbach* T32 tools.
