Debugging

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

Tools & Debug Probes

Supported debugging tools are listed in “Debug” column. For more detailed information, please scroll table by horizontal. You can switch between debugging Tools & Debug Probes using debug_tool option in “platformio.ini” (Project Configuration File).

Warning

You will need to install debug tool drivers depending on your system. Please click on compatible debug tool below for the further instructions.

On-Board Debug Tools

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

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.
