This guide shows how to configure Eclipse to make it upload firmware binaries to connected embedded targets.
Preparing the build system
Ensure that you can upload the application to your target using your build system. If not, add a new make target, say,
upload, that invokes the command that executes the uploading.
Assuming that there is a script that performs the uploading named
tools/blackmagic_flash.sh, and the binary file
build/compound.elf, the following make target can be defined:
Verify that the target works properly by executing
make upload from the command line.
Open your project and select the view
Build Targets, which is usually located on the right-hand panel. If you can't locate the view there, you can enable it in the menu by clicking
Show View →
Click the button
New Build Target as shown on the screenshot.
The window Create Build Target should appear. In this window, enter the name of your build target in the field
Target name. Double check that the default build command is correct; if not, modify it manually. The resulting window should look as shown below.
Click OK, and you're all set. Now you can upload your application to the target by double-clicking the new build target.
You can define additional commands and build options similarly.
