I wonder what JTAG programmer that is recommended to the i.MX6?
Also what tool would you recommend to do the debugging?
Generally the following summary link contains information about recommended tools. Please look at sections "Hardware Development Tools".
Please consult with JTAG tool / probe provider about i.MX6 initialization scripts.
Also please pay attention :
The JTAG_MOD pin of the JTAG connector controls the selection of JTAG to the core logic or
boundary scan operation. For software debugging The JTAG_MOD should be pulled
ARM RealView and DS-5 support i.MX6.
The next JTAG probes may be applied : RealView ICE and DSTREAM.
Also please find an overview of 3rd party development tools for ARM here:
The next app note may be useful in debugging :
"AN4553 Using Open Source Debugging Tools for Linux on i.MX Processors."
Hi Niklas, in addition to the list provided above, there is also BDI3000 from Abatron AG that we regularly use with iMX6.
Hope this helps
I'll check this.
Right now I'm trying to find something that is not too fancy since we'll mostly use it incase we can't get the Processor up and running, when we get the board.
I am using the Macraigor USB Wiggler JTAG. Pretty basic, but it seems to be enough to bring up a board with some software. The do support GCC & Eclipse for development.
This looks more like what I'm after.
Are you using it for I.mx6?
What software are you using then to download code?
Yes I am working with the i.mx53 and I.mx6 Quad. The i.mx6 is the Win Systems board. I am using the u-boot to download OS-9 RTOS. I am porting it to run on these chips. I have it running now on the i.mx53, and the i.mx6 should be running in the next few days. Once I get the OS and basic boot code working, I then plan to figure out to use the booter code to replace the u-boot.
