LinuxScope-JTD™ is an advanced debugger for the Eclipse™ IDE that has been optimized for use with Abatron's BDI2000/3000 BDM/JTAG probes. LinuxScope-JTD™ leverages the capabilities of the BDI probe, which already supports a wide range of embedded CPUs to provide a complete software debugging solution for the Linux kernel. LinuxScope also provides users with the ability to program a wide range of common flash and strata flash devices. LinuxScope-JTD™ has been certified for use with the Abatron BDI2000 and BDI3000 BDM/JTAG probes and has been tested with DevRocket from MontaVista Software.
Up until now, engineers who use the BDI2000/3000 probe to debug embedded Linux on various 16/32-bit RISC processors have used an open source debugger, GDB, which provides a command line interface to pass debugging instructions. Those who prefer to work within a GUI (graphical user interface) typically use GDB with an open source GUI, such as DDD or Insight. The problems with these GUI”s is they have no working knowledge of any JTAG probe and therefore they fall short of being a complete solution. Users of the BDI probe are able to take advantage of a feature rich debugger that was developed from the ground up to leverage the capabilities of the BDI probe and the Eclipse IDE (Integrated Development Environment).
LinuxScope-JTD™ can be purchased stand-alone or bundled with Abatron’s BDI2000 or BDI3000. Various license schemes are available to satisfy specific customer needs. The software is compatible with platforms running Windows, Linux, Macintosh and Solaris.
