Whenever you try to debug your code in your Launchpad, EVM or custom board, there is a chance the connection fails.
If this happens, the Debugging JTAG page contains most of the information required to troubleshoot this.
The first step is to carefully read the error message. If it contains an error code, search the Debugging JTAG page using the Ctrl+F key combination on your web browser.
Usually the explanation for the error code contains a reference to one of the sections below of the same page:
- The section Strategy for debugging JTAG connectivity problems contains suggestions to verify the install, configuration and perform a step-by-step procedure to troubleshoot the issue.
- The section Troubleshooting the connect phase contains possible root causes for the various problems that may happen, ranging from device drivers to device configuration, including a special subsection that is a complete Hardware checklist.
- The section Common errors lists all the common error messages and codes for easy search.
