We will be using TI's OMAP-L138, but we understand Sys/Bios cannot support the ARM. If we use Starterware combined with Sys/Bios will we still have the diagsnostics capabilities? Or only on the DSP?
You can run SYS/BIOS on the ARM on the OMAP-L138. What gave you the impression that you could not?
Yes, but it does not have a peripheral support packge for the ARM, am I right? For peripheral support on the Arm9 I'd need to use Starterware.
Yes, you are correct. We have not tested the PSP with SYS/BIOS.
Which diagnostic capabilities are you referring to?
This is the information I got:
The following diagnostics capabilities are available…
Allows events to be logged and then passes those events to a Log handler.
Provides for configurable assertion diagnostics.
Allows raising, checking, and handling errors defined by any modules.
Provides time-stamping APIs that forward calls to a platformspecific time stamper (or one provided by CCS).
Allows diagnostics to be enabled/disabled at either configuration- or run-time on a per-module basis.
Actually all of these can be used without SYS/BIOS. They are part of XDCtools (which is OS independent). You'll need to make your project a RTSC project with a .cfg file.
