IAR with Olimex JTAG Devices

Started by Kevin Townsend January 3, 2009
I wanted to try IARs compiler to compare the output, and also because
many examples I've found on the web are written for IAR (notably
Olimex). Unfortunately, I'm not all that eager to purchased ANOTHER
JTAG device when I already own an ARM-USB-OCD and an ARM-USB-TINY.

I was on Olimex's website that you can apparently use the GDB Server
option in IAR to make their debuggers work with IAR, but I'm not really
sure how this is possible. Presumably, I need to install something
like OpenOCD? Does anyone have any advice/experience getting the
Olimex debuggers to play well with IAR? I couldn't find much via
Google, though maybe it's just a problem of terms (IAR OpenOCD Olimex,
etc.)

You need to download and install OpenOCD. I think that the newest
version was 7.17!?

I have used ARM-USB-OCD with IAR and it works fine. If you need
additional info how to set up the GDB write me an email and I will
send you information you need
