Debugging

PIO Unified Debugger - “1-click” solution for debugging with a zero configuration.

Supported debugging tools are listed in “Debug” column. For more detailed information, please scroll table by horizontal. You can switch between debugging Tools using debug_tool options.

On-Board tools

Boards listed below have on-board debugging tools and ARE READY for debugging! You do not need to use/buy external debugger.

Packages

Name Description
framework-mbed mbed Framework
tool-pyocd Open source python library for programming and debugging ARM Cortex-M microcontrollers using CMSIS-DAP
toolchain-gccarmnoneeabi gcc-arm-embedded

Warning

Linux Users:

Windows Users:

Please check that you have a correctly installed USB driver from board manufacturer

Frameworks

Name Description
mbed The mbed framework The mbed SDK has been designed to provide enough hardware abstraction to be intuitive and concise, yet powerful enough to build complex projects. It is built on the low-level ARM CMSIS APIs, allowing you to code down to the metal if needed. In addition to RTOS, USB and Networking libraries, a cookbook of hundreds of reusable peripheral and module libraries have been built on top of the SDK by the mbed Developer Community.
