Eclipse + Black Magic Probe + Embsysregview

Is there a chance to use the Black Magic Probe with Eclipse and see the peripheral registers. Short answer: Yes it is. For peripheral registers, you will need the Embsysregview Eclipse plugin. If you have a problem to install it check my last blog post .  How setup BMP? Go to: Run -> Debug configurations -> GDB Hardware Debugging and select New Launch configuration on the top left corner. Select everything as it is on images (my example is for miniblink, you do it for your). Image 1 - Main

Embsysregview - Eclipse plugin and how to install it

In the last couple of days, I was trying to install Embsysregview for my Pixracer (STM32F427VI) to do debugging with Black Magic Probe, but it wasn't possible to install it because there is a problem inside download links when you trying to do it over Eclipse marketplace.

Cortex-debug powerful extension for VSCode

In the process of working on a new example (timer), I had some difficulty to make it work. I've found out it that my current setup for Black Magic Probe doesn't work with interrupts. Luckily, in the process of debugging I have found a very useful tool for debugging Cortex MCUs which supports Black Magic Probe debugger and with it, everything works much better because it has preloaded setup for BMP. The name of the extension is  Cortex-debug . In the time of writing this text version, 0.1.21 doesn't support powering board over BMP (monitor twpr enable) so I modified the source of the extension to enable it. Link to the modified extension is here . If you are Linux user you need to unpack this zip in to /home/your_user_name/.vscode/extensions/ and restart VSCode. Now your Pixracer (or other board) will be power up before you start debugging it. Another useful thing you can do is to add a static name to your black magic probe instead check if it is ttyACM0 or ttyACM1.
