Thank you for the swift reply,

 

Let's say i made a design with three processors and three applications (one application running in each processor). When i download biststream onto an fpga, will all the applications be run simultanously??

Hi,

 

If their application is part of the bitstream (in internal BRAMs) then all three will start to execute their code after reset.

If you connect each MicroBlaze to the MDM, you can connect to each of them and debug one by one.

You can also start a gdb session for each MicroBlaze.

Hi,

 

Barrie Timpe knows more on what tutorials that exists. I'm too deep into development to know about all tutorials that exists.

This one is a good start for most stuff and it has a section on debugging.
