Stephen Theobald from the ARM Connected Community forum shows us how to debug a Linux application running on BeagleBone Black using ARM’s DS-5 CE toolkit.
In this blog, I’ll show how to debug and profile the Open Source “Xaos” fractal rendering application running under Linux on the new BeagleBone Black using DS-5 Debugger, and how to profile the system using the ARM Streamline™ performance analyzer. BeagleBone Black is based on an ARM Cortex®-A8 Sitara AM3359 processor running at 1GHz, with 512MB DDR3 RAM.
Each Tuesday is BeagleBone Black Day here Adafruit! What is the BeagleBone? The BeagleBones are a line of affordable single-board Linux computers (SBCs) created by Texas Instruments. New to the Bone? Grab one of our Adafruit BeagleBone Black Starter Packs and check out our extensive resources available on the Adafruit Learning System including a guide to setting up the Adafruit BeagleBone IO Python Library. We have a number of Bone accessories including add-on shields (called “capes”) and USB devices to help you do even more with your SBC. Need a nice display to go along with your Bone? Check out our fine selection of HDMI displays, we’ve tested all of them with the Beagle Bone Black!
