Debugging LPC18xx/LPC43xx images built to run from internal RAM

lpcxpresso-support's picture

For LPCXpresso IDE v8.1 and later: this FAQ applies to all supported Debug Probes.

For earlier versions of LPCXpresso IDE: this does not apply if you are using the original LPC-Link or Red Probe+ debug probes.


If you are building and debugging images for LPC18xx or LPC43xx MCUs which will be download to and run from internal RAM, rather than from internal or external flash, then the default launch configuration created by the LPCXpresso IDE will need modifying before you can successfully start a debug session.

LPC541xx Cortex-M4 / M0+ Multicore Applications

Introduction

The LPC541xx series of MCUs contain a main or 'Master' Cortex M4 core, plus an optional 'Slave' Cortex M0+ core. At the time of writing the parts are:

What is Redlink?

lpcxpresso-support's picture

Redlink (also known as Link Server) is the mechanism used by LPCXpresso to provide a debug connection down to a target MCU. It provides the means to connect to single MCUs or to multiple CPUs within the same MCU via a single debug probe.

Redlink consists of a number of layers which you may see referenced in various places within LPCXpresso when making debug connections. These include:

LPC-Link2 Support

Supported Parts

LPC-Link2 (combined with the associated CMSIS-DAP firmware) is the recommended debug probe for use with LPCXpresso IDE, except for the following MCU families:

  • LPC2xxx (ARM7) , LPC3xxx (ARM9)
    • No support for these parts is planned

For more information on debug probes support by LPCXpresso IDE, please see the FAQ "Which debug probes are supported by LPCXpresso IDE with which MCUs?"

CMSIS-DAP support in LPCXpresso

lpcxpresso-support's picture

CMSIS-DAP is an interface defined by ARM that provides a standardized way to access the Coresight Debug Access Port (DAP) of an ARM Cortex microcontroller via USB. For more information on CMSIS-DAP, please visit the ARM/MBED CMSIS-DAP site.

Support for CMSIS-DAP in LPCXpresso

A variety of debug probes are now available that implement a CMSIS-DAP interface, either standalone or built into development boards. Connection to such probes is supported from LPCXpresso IDE v6 onwards.
