The XVC based debug solution can be used with AXI masters such as the PCIe® XDMA IP. If the AXI master is in a hang situation or is otherwise not functioning properly, there are no methods to debug those scenarios. To provide a JTAG-based fall back debug pathway that is parallel to the XVC pathway, AMD recommends using the Debug Bridge in BSCAN Primitive mode. A Debug Bridge in BSCAN Primitive mode can be instantiated in static region and its BSCAN master interface can be connected to the BSCAN slave interface of a second Debug Bridge that is configured with the JTAG Fallback Support enabled. There are two JTAG Fallback Support types:
- If the Debug Bridge that you want to provide JTAG Fallback for resides in a RP region, you need to enable the External BSCAN Master JTAG Fallback Support.
- If the Debug Bridge that you want to provide JTAG Fallback for resides in the static region (or in a flat design), you should enable the Internal BSCAN Master JTAG Fallback Support.
