I took a look at the mbed OS 5 and the corresponding mbed cli
I created first programs and programmed them via the binary drag and drop to the flash disk provided by the programmer (Using the GCC_ARM compiler, target is a NUCLEO_F429ZI). For serious projects this is not suitable as the device cannot be debugged this way.
As i can read from the mbed documentation the programmer also contains the CMSIS-DAP interface which can be used to program/debug the device.
For evaluation i would like to use a free IDE and use it for debugging. So i would choose Eclipse for this using the C/C++ version of it.
My question now is:
- How does the toolchain for a Windows / Linux machine look like?
- Does a professional toolchain even include the CMSIS-DAP or does one better use JTAG directly?
- What is the flow of programming / debugging over CMSIS-DAP?
