STEP 2: Compile and Build


1. Move inside the spiking folder and update it.

2. In the spiking folder, Run the below command to compile example.S for SHAKTI. example.S is the assembly file created in earlier Compile and Build section.


STEP 3: Debugging


The Arty-7 100T board is programmed with SHAKTI C class SoC. Please ensure Arty-7 100T board is connected to the the Host PC.

  • The Arty-7 100T board should be attached to the OpenOCD debugger, in order to debug your program using the RISC-V GNU Debugger (GDB) software.
  • Since we have built the application, already. We can straight away load it to the Arty-7 100T board and test.

  • TERMINAL 1: Open a serial port in this terminal, Here the output of the program is displayed.

    Note: "/dev/ttyUSB0" - ttyUSB means "USB serial port adapter" and the "0" ( "0" or "1" or "2") is the USB device number to which the board is connected and 19200 is the default baud rate.

  • TERMINAL 2: Open a new terminal and move to spiking folder. Here, run OpenOCD with the ftdi.cfg.

  • TERMINAL 3: Open a new terminal and move to spiking folder. Now start the gdb debugging session by running below command.
