A peek at something we're working on in the labs; v2.0 of our mbed Interface!
The mbed Interface v2.0 adds support for the new CMSIS-DAP driverless USB debug connection, so in addition to the drag n drop FLASH programming you use with mbed, when you export to a full debug toolchain, you will be able to perform full debug with the same mbed hardware!
Here is a video showing it in action:
All the usual debug capabilities are supported:
- set breakpoints
- start/stop/step the execution
- inspect local variables
- inspect memory
- inspect core registers
We're even planning on supplying this as a firmware update for the mbed Microcontrollers, so you'll be able to get this functionality for your existing mbeds as well as new ones!
If you are interested in this functionality, please register here:
We'll also be looking for a group of keen mbed users to help us test the new interface and report bugs; we'll contact the list above when we're ready to start the beta.
