Demo Mode demonstrates winIDEA functionality to a certain extent without any iSYSTEM BlueBox and/or target connected.
Enable/disable Demo Mode by clicking Tools menu / Demo Mode.
As a first time user you can get a general view of winIDEA layout and an insight into the basic operations of Debug windows (e.g. Watches, Core Registers, Disassembly etc.) before connecting to the target CPU.
More and more CPUs feature different security functionalities against the
unauthorized access to the CPU or the CPU memory resources. It's in common
to these CPUs that programming invalid values to certain memory regions
(e.g. UCB sectors on Infineon AURIX architecture) can lock the CPU from
further operation or make the debug interface inoperable. Caution is advised when programming the files for which you cannot be sure they address
the security issues accordingly.
As a precaution, enable Demo Mode in winIDEA, download the application and inspect security related memory content with Load map. Note that when in Demo Mode, the debug download doesn't program or load any code to the target CPU. After concluding the task, be sure to disable Demo Mode.
Sorry this article didn't answer your question, we'd love to hear how we can improve it.
