The Debugger Terminal is similar to the Xilinx System Debugger (XSDB). All commands supported by XSDB syntax can be executed through the debugger terminal:
  • After writing a command in the command line press Enter on the keyboard or click the SEND button to execute the command. To clear the command line input, click the CLEAR button.
  • A series of commands can also be executed by uploading a file using the UPLOAD button (.tcl and .xregv files are supported). All commands supported by the Xilinx System Debugger (XSDB) are supported here with respect to the XSDB syntax.
  • A progress bar is displayed as the file is being uploaded. The upload can be canceled by clicking the CANCEL button.
  • The debugger stores the history of commands executed. You can retrieve previous commands using the command line input box and pressing the upward arrow key on the keyboard.
  • Click the CLOSE button to clear the debugger terminal console.

  • You can download the register addresses and values displayed in the table by clicking the DOWNLOAD button.
  • Click the STOP button to stop a watch (highlighted in yellow in the following figure).
  • To monitor multiple addresses, list the address in the .tcl file and upload the file by clicking the Upload File... button (highlighted in green in the following figure).
