and/or powered up with a click, others can be enabled from the Memory Map View.
The configuration of settings for the component is done by clicking on configurable blocks, which can be identified by their darker backgrounds and a hand cursor. Changing value(s) on block(s) will update the associated register values, and the changes will be reflected in other views like the Memory Map View. Note that these changes will only apply to software unless auto apply is enabled for the board or until an Apply action is selected.
In many cases, when there are multiple instances of similar blocks that are functionally grouped, the diagram is simplified to show one group at a time. A selector is used to choose which group of blocks to show, and the group of blocks is indicated by a dark background. The user can click the selector to choose a particular group, or click the up and down arrows to choose the next or previous group.
Unless the auto apply has been enabled in the Board View, section 3.6.3, values changed in the Chip View will affect the software values in the Chip and Memory Map views only, they will not affect the hardware state. The following view toolbar buttons can be used to update both the hardware and software values:
Resets hardware to its default state. This command does not affect the soft= ware values.
This command does not affect the hardware.
The proceed to memory map button in the bottom-right corner of the diagram will open the Memory Map View for the device when clicked.
If the product has data acquisition and analysis functionality you will be able to navigate to this view from the proceed to capture button at the bottom-right of the diagram.
