High-speed BDM/JTAG Interface for GNU Debugger

bdiGDB enhances the GNU debugger (GDB), with BDM and JTAG debugging together with the BDI3000. All users of a PowerPC, ARM, XScale or MIPS32/64 processor can benefit from this debugging mode. The bdiGDB system supports Linux kernel debugging also when MMU is enabled. With the built-in Ethernet interface you get a very fast code download speed. No target communication channel (e.g. serial line) is wasted for debugging purposes. Even better, you can use fast Ethernet debugging with target systems without network capability. The host to BDI communication uses the standard GDB remote protocol. An additional Telnet interface is available for special debug tasks (e.g. force a hardware reset, program flash memory).

Highlights

Supported Target Families

As of April 15, 2008 the BDI 2000 hardware is no longer available for the bdiGDB. Abatron will continue to support the BDI2000 with software updates and technical support. In addition, any new CPU support or enhancements that are added to the BDI3000 firmware will also be added to the BDI2000 firmware.
