target-gen is a helper tool for probe-rs, which can be used to extract flash algorithms and target descriptions for chips from ARM CMSIS-Packs. This will then allow you to flash the chip using probe-rs.
Usage with CMSIS-Pack
As a first step, you need to get an appropriate CMSIS-Pack for the chip you want to flash. By default, probe-rs will look for CMSIS-Packs at the following ARM website: https://developer.arm.com/tools-and-software/embedded/cmsis/cmsis-search.
To download and generate pack files, use the
cargo run --release -- arm [OPTIONS] <OUTPUT>
Arguments: An output directory where all the generated .yaml files are put in.
Options: -l, --list Optionally, list the names of all pack files available in <https://www.keil.com/pack/Keil.pidx> -f, --filter <PACK_FILTER> Optionally, filter the pack files that start with the specified name, e.g. `STM32H7xx` or `LPC55S69_DFP`. See `target-gen arm --list` for a list of available Pack files
If you already have a pack file, you use the
cargo run --release -- pack [OPTIONS] <OUTPUT>
Arguments: <INPUT> A Pack file or the unziped Pack directory. <OUTPUT> An output directory where all the generated .yaml files are put in.
This wil generate YAML files containing the target descriptions, which can be used with probe-rs.
Usage with ELF files
The target-gen tool can also be used to create a target description based on an ELF file. This requires that the ELF file adhers to the ARM CMSIS standard for flash algorithms, which can be found at: https://arm-software.github.io/CMSIS_5/Pack/html/algorithmFunc.html
cargo run --release -- elf <ELF FILE> target.yml
will create a target description containing the extracted flash algorithm. The values for the chip description itself have to be adjusted manually in the generated Yaml file.
