The Debug Options configure how the project should be debugged, which debug interface (J-Link, GDB Server, Simulator) should be used, and how the target should be configured on certain operations.
The Debugger options control how to debug the project. These options apply to all debug interfaces.
|Target Connection||J-Link, GDB Server, Simulator||Select the debug interface to use to connect to the target device.|
|Target Device||string, select from the list of known devices||The name of the device to connect to.|
|Run To Control||Always, Only With No Breakpoint Set, Never, On Entry||Specifies when the initial breakpoint should be set.|
|Run To||string||Specifies where to set the initial breakpoint.|
|Startup Completion Point|
|Start From Entry Point Symbol|
|Leave Target Running|
|Register Definition File|
|Debug Terminal Log File|
|Threads Script File|
|Access Variables Within Memory Map Only|
|Entry Point Symbol|
|Ignore .debug_aranges Section|
|Ignore .debug_frame Section|
|Memory Upload Page Size|
|Reserved Member Name|
|RTT Control Block Address|
|Starting Stack Pointer Value|
|Type Interpretation File|
|Debug Symbols File[0-3]|
The J-Link Options configure how to connect to a J-Link and how J-Link connects to the target. These options apply only when "J-Link" is selected as "Target Connection".
|Host Connection||string, USB, USB s/n, IP s/n, IP nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn, selection from available J-Links||Defines how to connect Embedded Studion to the J-Link.|
|Target Interface Type|
|Show Log Messages In Output Window|
|Exclude Flash Cache Range|
|Additional J-Link Options|
The GDB Server Options configure how to connect to a GDB Server and how to handle it. these options apply only when "GDB Server" is selected as "Target Connection".
|Host||string, Default: localhost||The hostname or IP of the GDB Server to connect to.|
|Type||J-Link, OpenOCD, ST-Link, Custom||The type of GDB Server being connected to.|
|GDB Server Command Line||string||The command line to start GDB Server.|
|Auto Start GDB Server||Yes, No||Specifies whether GDB Server is started by Embedded Studio on connect or assumed to be already running.|
|Port||number||The portnumber of the GDB Server to connect to.|
|Reset and Stop Command||string, automatically set for known GDB Servers.||The remote GDB Server command to use to reset and stop the target.|
|Ignore Checksum Errors||Yes, No, automatically set for known GDB Servers.||Specifies whether an incorrect GBD communication checksum causes an error. Workaround for ST-Link GDB Server.|
|Allow Memory Access During Execution||Yes, No, automatically set for known GDB Servers.||Specifies whether memory can be accessed while target is running. If No, target will be stopped for each memory access.|
|Log File||filepath||Specifies a file to output the log of GDB Server communication to.|
|Target XML File||filepath||If set, use this file instead of the target.xml returned by GDB Server.|
|Connect Timeout||number||The length of time in secconds to attempt to connect to server before failing.|
The Simulation Options configure how the target device core should be simulated. These options apply only when "Simulator" is selected as "Target Connection".

The Loader Options configure which application file and additional files to program to the target device on debug.
Additional Options for checks when debugging on a target.
The Target Scrip Options configure script functions to be executed on certain debug operations.
The Target Trace Options configure which trace interface to use and how to initialize trace on the target device.
