I have some GHI Electronics G400S SOMs with an Atmel SAM9X35 926EJ-S ARM microcontroller loaded with the Atmel SAM-BA bootloader. Will VisualGDB be able to connect, download and debug programs to this SOM over it’s USB port? I can do this with the .Net Micro Framework and C# in Visual Studio and it would sure be nice if I could continue using these SOMs with native C/C++ and VisualGDB. The SAM-BA documentation seems to say it can but I don’t have access to the hardware to actually give it a try. Thanks – Gene
Sorry, this looks like a very niche configuration that will not be supported directly. If you could find out the exact steps and command lines to do it outside VisualGDB, we can help you configure VisualGDB to automate them, but unfortunately we cannot offer any help beyond that.
This project has come up and again and I’d like to ask the question a different way. It looks like I can access the JTAG pins on the SAM9X35 part and the Segger J-Link EDU module does support this device. But I haven’t found a SAM9X35 or ARM926EJ-S in the list of MPUs in the VisualGDB New Embedded Project -> Device Selection table. There are some part numbers that come close but nothing exact. Does VisualGDB support this device?
