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.
