I recently got my SAM7A3 eval board code running under WinARM and I was
wondering if anyone knew there were any good debug tools that use the
SAM-ICE (I have the Segger JLink software installed, but that doesn't
seem to include debug stuff, just the DLL so you can debug stuf...).

If anyone has any ideas, let me know, I'd appreciate it :)


I saw the post Martin made about making double posts on forums, so I'm
just letting you know that if you happen to check www.at91.com forums,
then you'll see a similar post under the compiler/debugger section, but
those forums are kinda bland and I'm not really expected a response from
it.

Thanks!

Some debug-tools/tool-combinations for the SAM-ICE (JLINK OEM for AT91):
- Keil uVision thru the RDI-interface (commercial, free eval.)
- IAR EWARM (commercial, free eval.)
- JLINK gdbserver (gnuarm yahoo-group files-section, free) +
gdb/insight-gdb (open-source, GPL)
- codecourcery's rdi to gdbserver (IRC there is an issue with the
JLINK-RDI-dll and this code, but it may be fixed in the current release)
As far as I know the main differrence between a JLINK and a SAM-ICE is
that SAM-ICE just supports AT91-targets and the RDI-license is already
included in the SAM-ICE. I suppose there are a lot of other tools which
support the RDI-interface.
I currently do not use my JLINK (so far I do not own the RDI-license),
so take my information for what it's worth...
