Important Information for users of NXP LPCXpresso

This site is for users of Code Red branded products.

NXP LPCXpresso users should visit the LPCXpresso FAQ's for up-to-date information relevant to that product.

Using command line GDB

The underlying debugger within Red Suite/LPCXpresso/Precision32 is GDB. This page shows how to connect to a debug target with GDB using the Code Red debug driver.

The Code Red Debug driver implements the GDB "remote" protocol to allow connection to debug targets. To start a debug session using GDB, we suggest following steps:

; start GDB and name the debug image
arm-none-eabi-gdb executable.axf                      
; start debug driver, connect to target
target extended-remote | <debug driver and options>   
; load image and download to target
load                                                  

The <debug driver and options> command is as follows:

debug_driver options

where debug driver is one of:

and options are:

Thus typical invocations would be:

1. target extended-remote | crt_emu_cm3_nxp -2 -pLPC1768 -wire=winusb
2. target extended-remote | crt_emu_cm3_lmi -2 -pLM3S6965
3. target extended-remote | crt_emu_cm3_ng -2 -pSiM3U167 -vendor=Silabs -vc  -wire=sladi
4. select extended-remote | crt_emu_cm3_stm32f1 -2 -pSTM32F107VC -vendor=STM
5. target extended-remote | crt_emu_cm3_gen -2 -pSTM32F051x8 -vendor=STM
  1. establishes a connection to an NXP LPC1768 using RDB1768v2 or LPC-Link
  2. establishes a connection to a TI LM3S6965 using Red Probe+, Red Probe, RDB1768v1 or TI Stellaris Evaluation board
  3. establishes a connection to an Silabs SiM3U167 using the Silicon Labs USB Debug Adapter

  4. establishes a connection to an STM32F107VC part using Red Probe+
  5. establishes a connection to an STM32F051x8 part using Red Probe+
