Hardware Setup

To use the Intel® System Debugger on a hardware board the host and target hardware must first be connected. The probe drivers are installed by the installer.

Intel® ITP-XDP

  1. Unpack your probe kit.
  2. Plug in the probe power supply. The probe fan must start spinning. Failing to connect the power supply when the probe is in use will damage the probe.
  3. Plug the USB cable into the probe and into an USB2.0 (or greater) port of your host computer.
  4. Identify the right XDP port on your target board, usually named "CPU XDP", and plug the small PCB with connector at the end of the ribbon cable to it.
  5. Power on the target board.

TinCanTools* FLYSWATTER2*, Olimex* ARM-USB-OCD-H

  1. Unpack your probe kit.
  2. Plug the USB cable into the probe and into an USB2.0 (or greater) port of your host computer.
  3. Plug the debug cable to the probe and to the debug port on the target board.
  4. Power on the target board.

Intel's SVT Closed Chassis Adapter and USB3 Native Debug Class (DbC)

  1. Unpack your probe kit.
  2. Enable DCI debug from target board BIOS.
  3. Identify the USB3 debug port on your target board
  4. Plug the debug cable to the host USB port and to the USB3 debug port on the target board.
  5. Power on the target board.

USB3 Native Debug Class (DbC) cable

  1. Unpack your probe kit.
  2. Enable DCI debug from target board BIOS.
  3. Identify the USB3 debug port on your target board
  4. Plug the USB cable to the probe and into an USB3.0 (or greater) port of your host computer.
  5. Plug the debug cable to the probe and to the USB3 debug port on the target board.
  6. Power on the target board.
