The "JTAG-GDB server" is a program for integrating the ARM-Embedded
ICE logic with the GNU-Debugger GDB.
This program is running at a host system (for example an i386 PC) and it is directly (or an extra Level Shifter/Line Driver) connected with the ARM Embedded ICE logic of the target platform using the JTAG interface.
At the other side, the server has to understand GDB's own remote
debug protocol which is transported over ether a RS232 or a TCP/IP link
(including the loopback interface so that the debugger and the server
can live at the same machine).
The host system can be any embedded CPU platform that has a direct port to emulate the standard JTAG signals.
For example the host platform can be standard PC with a parallel IO
using a Level Shifter/Line Driver.
These drivers can also be standard device like Altera Byteblaster, Xilinx DLC, Lattice ISPDLC, Macraigor Wiggler etc or your own tinker solution.
The target machine can be any ARM CPU with JTAG and embedded ICE
See Manual file for more details.
