Server/Loader Plug-In -
Development Interface for Server/Loader Applications
- Allows a Server/Loader application to be developed in the CCS environment
- Enables simultaneous debug of PC + DSP/FPGA application code
- Supports all HUNT ENGINEERING HERON systems
- Provides easy path from debug to deployment
What does it do for me?
Server/Loader plug-in allows a smooth migration from the debug environment (Server/Loader + Code Composer) to deployment (without Code Composer), speeding your project development time.
It provides all the functionality of the Server/Loader as a plug-in within Code Composer Studio. Now, the DSP system can be booted using fast FIFO-based communications links. It can access the high-speed file I/O and stdio available through Server/Loader all within the debug environment offered by Code Composer Studio.
It is also possible to use the Server/Loader plug-in with systems using the library version of Server/Loader. Typically in these systems, the PC application is developed in a PC environment like Microsoft Visual C++, and linked to the Server/Loader library. Using the capabilities of the plug-in, the DSP debugger would start when you loaded the DSP code, running to the start of your application allowing you to debug PC & DSP code simultaneously.
No changes to the DSP code are required to use the plug-in, while the PC must simply invoke Sever/Loader with the debug option. This can be implemented as a command line or config file option for the PC application, offering in-field debug capability.
When would I use it?
Use the Server/Loader plug-in any time you want to debug a project using the Server/Loader.
How is it configured?
The image above shows the Server/Loader plug-in being run, within Code Composer.
