The NXP MIMXRT595-EVK_ evaluation board is a demonstration target for on-device
Pigweed development
.. _MIMXRT595-EVK:
Step 1: Download SDK
To configure this Pigweed target you will first need to download an NXP
`MCUXpresso SDK`_ for your device and unpack it within your project source tree.
.. _MCUXpresso SDK:
Step 2: Create SDK source set
You'll next need to create a source set based on the downloaded SDK, and set
the ``pw_third_party_mcuxpresso_SDK`` build arg to the name of the source set
you create. See :ref:`module-pw_build_mcuxpresso` for more details.
Alternatively to get started you can start with the basic project template by
setting the ``pw_target_mimxrt595_evk_MANIFEST`` build arg to the location of
the manifest file within the unpacked SDK, and then setting the
``pw_third_party_mcuxpresso_SDK`` to the ``sample_sdk`` source set within the
Pigweed target directory.
.. code:: sh
$ gn args out
# Modify and save the args file to use the sample SDK.
pw_target_mimxrt595_evk_MANIFEST = "//third_party/mcuxpresso/sdk/EVK-MIMXRT595_manifest_v3_8.xml"
pw_third_party_mcuxpresso_SDK = "//targets/mimxrt595_evk:sample_sdk"
Once configured, to build for this Pigweed target, simply build the top-level
"mimxrt595" Ninja target.
.. code:: sh
$ ninja -C out mimxrt595
Running and Debugging
First Time Setup
The MIMXRT595-EVK comes with an integrated Link2 debug probe that can operate in
either CMSIS-DAP or SEGGER J-Link mode. CMSIS-DAP is how the board will likely
come by default, but J-Link is the mode that is currently known to work, so
you'll need to flash the Link2 with the correct firmware.
1. Download and install the LPCScrypt_ utility from the NXP website.
2. Place a jumper over **JP1** (not **J1**). If you're having trouble locating
this, it's in the top-right of the board in a block of four jumpers closest
to the USB ports.
3. Connect a USB cable into the top-right USB port (**J40**) and your computer.
4. Run ``scripts/boot_lpcscrypt`` from the LPCScrypt installation.
5. Run ``scripts/program_JLINK`` from the LPCScrypt installation, press the
*SPACE* key to update the firmware.
6. Unplug the USB cable and remove the **JP1** jumper.
Now is also a good time to download and install the J-Link_ package from the
SEGGER website.

General Setup
Each time you prepare the MIMXRT595-EVK for use, you'll need to do a few steps.
You don't need to repeat these if you leave everything setup and don't
disconnect or reboot.
1. Ensure the **SW7** DIP switches are set to Off-Off-On (boot from QSPI Flash).
2. Connect a USB cable into the top-right USB port (**J40**) and your computer.
3. Start the J-Link GDB Server and leave this running:
.. code-block:: sh
JLinkGDBServer -select USB -device MIMXRT595S -endian little -if SWD -speed 4000 -noir
On Linux, you may need to install the `libncurses5` library to use the tools:
.. code-block:: sh
sudo apt install libncurses5
Running and Debugging
Use ``arm-none-eabi-gdb`` to load an executable into the target, debug, and run
.. code-block::

Resetting target
You can now set any breakpoints you wish, and ``continue`` to run the
To reset the target use ``monitor reset``.
To load an updated version of the same file, after resetting the target,
use ``load`` and a second ``monitor reset`` as shown above.
To debug a new file, use ``file`` before ``load``.
Debug console is available on the USB serial port, e.g. ``/dev/ttyACM0``
(Linux) or ``/dev/tty.usbmodem*`` (Mac).
