ESP32-EVB, how to connect JTAG Debugger
« on: January 20, 2018, 05:07:34 AM »
I would like to ask how to connect an JTAG debugger ?
I can't find a header to connect a debugger.
Is it possible to konect an debugger to the board
If it is not possible on thos board Revision, please provide on on the next board review



Thanks in Advance

Looks like you need to use the MTDI, MTDO, MTMS, MTCK signals but some are already used (see schematic).

If so, I think you'd have to disconnect them.

For the hardware connection between the JTAG and the ESP32-EVB you can use wires and the extension header EXT1:

Pin #13 - GPIO12/IR_Transmit - MTDI = TDI

Pin #14 - GPIO13/I2C-SDA – MTCK = TCK

Pin #15 - GPIO14/HS2_CLK – MTMS = TMS

Pin #16 - GPIO15/HS2_CMD - MTDO = TDO

Pin #34 - GND

Refer to the schematic for better understanding. Since there is multiplexing with the SD card interface, make sure that any SD card is removed from ESP32-EVB. Once you identify the hardware points for the connection read here: http://esp-idf.readthedocs.io/en/latest/api-guides/jtag-debugging/#jtag-debugging-how-it-works

If you need a compatible OpenOCD debugger, consider our mature and well-known products – ARM-USB-TINY-H and ARM-USB-OCD-H.

Hello,
i tried to use VISUALGDB for development and got an error message as shown below:
Can someone give an explanaiten what caused this error message and show me some hints to try fixing,please.

C:\SysGCC\esp32\esp32-bsp\OpenOCD\bin\openocd.exe -c "gdb_port 61847" -c "telnet_port 61848" -f interface/ftdi/olimex-arm-usb-tiny-h.cfg -f target/esp32.cfg -c "adapter_khz 3000" -c "echo VisualGDB_OpenOCD_Ready"

Error: unable to open ftdi device with vid 15ba, pid 002a, description 'Olimex OpenOCD JTAG ARM-USB-TINY-H', serial '*' at bus location '*'


 What may cause this error:
What are correct settings of adapter within deice manager, wich driver to use, VisualGDB settings ?

Your drivers are improper, it seems. Use this VisualGDB tutorial as a basis (and the USBDriverTool that they mention): https://visualgdb.com/tutorials/esp8266/olimex/ - start from point 6.

hi,

I tried this connections but did not work

Connections ESP32 - ARM-USB-OCD
gpio12 - TTDI
gpio13 - TTCK
gpio14 - TTMS
gpio15 - TTDO
GND    - GND


I used this command with openocd-esp32:
openocd -f interface/ftdi/olimex-arm-usb-ocd-h.cfg -f board/esp-wroom-32.cfg

Hi,

I now connected JTAG VREF to ESP32 3V3 and something started to work!

You may get help from the oocd ML.  They'll need -d3 log.

Or the ESP32 forums since they also provide an official guide here: http://esp-idf.readthedocs.io/en/latest/api-guides/jtag-debugging/index.html
