I am trying to set a hardware breakpoint at the address of external RAM at 0x60000000, but I get an error message.
I cannot find any information in the reference manual about any limitations. What is the possible range for Hardware Breakpoints?

I have heard that there are 2 versions of the breakpoint register: Version 1 only has 29 bits, version 2 has 32 bits.

Does the XMC4500 have a version 1 register?

Hello,

You can find more details about the debug system of Infineon XMC4000 family of microcontrollers from following link, https://www.infineon.com/dgdl/Infineon-System_Debug_XMC4-TR-v01_01-EN.pdf?fileId=5546d4624bcaebcf014....
As mentioned in this document, XMC4000 family supports "8 hardware breakpoints and unlimited software breakpoints".

To get a better idea about this issue could you please let us know the error message that you observe when trying to set a new hardware breakpoint?

Thanks and Regards,
Sudheesh
