New debug tool integration offers developers an un-paralleled level of visibility into an embedded system

Lauterbach, the leading manufacturer of microprocessor development tools has announced that it has added an additional integration to its popular TRACE32® debug tool.

The new integration allows the Xilinx® Vivado® Design Suite to share the Lauterbach JTAG connection to Zynq®-7000 or Zynq® UltraScale+™ SoCs. “This is the breakthrough that some of our customers have been waiting for, the ability to debug hardware and software in parallel”, Says Barry Lock, Lauterbach’s UK Sales Manager. “We feel that this integration offers developers an un-paralleled level of visibility into an embedded system and should enable them to produce better quality systems in a more timely fashion.”

In addition to the entire set of TRACE32® advanced debug features, developers can now take advantage of the powerful diagnostic features and FPGA programming capabilities of Vivado® as well as analyzing internal FPGA signals via the Integrated Logic Analyzer. All of these tools can be used concurrently utilising a shared connection provided by the Lauterbach hardware. TRACE32® provides complete software debug support for ARM® Cortex® based processors as well as MicroBlaze™ soft cores running stand-alone or in a multi-core system. With support for over 50 embedded real-time operating systems, MMU awareness and hypervisor support, TRACE32® allows developers to debug any part of the system from a single easy to use interface.
