The Black Sphere Debugger is a modern, in-application debugging tool for embedded microprocessors. It allows you see what is going on ‘inside’ an application running on an embedded microprocessor while it executes. It currently supports the STM32, LM3S and LPC11xx families of ARM Cortex-M based microcontrollers. The hardware design and firmware source code are available under open-source licenses.
It is able to control and examine the state of the target microprocessor using a JTAG or SWD (Serial Wire Debugging) port and on-chip debug logic provided by the microprocessor. The probe connects to a host computer using a standard USB interface. The user is able to control exactly what happens using the GNU source level debugging software, GDB.
A standard USB serial (COM) port is supplied by the debugger that is ideal for debugging messages or communication with the target program. Black Sphere Debugger is particularly suited to automation, ATE, and test applications in a production environment.
