Bus speeds of more than 100 MHz, a challenge for emulator hardware
Since high speed RISC processors operate at bus frequencies
of more than 100 MHz , a redefinition of the traditional emulator
hardware was necessary. The result of this new concept TRACE32-FIRE
was developed especially for applications with RISC Processors,
Integrated Controllers and DSPs at highest clock frequencies.
The User can rely on all base functions of an traditional emulator
as there are debug, analyzer and trigger capabilities. The scalable design
of the new system allows you to start with a low-cost entry level probe and
to upgrade on every step of a system integration. The expensive parts of the
full featured solution can be reused for further projects with the latest
microprocessor architectures, protecting your investment for the future.
"Integrated emulation" garanties technological lead over competitors
Being a part of TRACE32 products, the user can change from any member
of the tool family to TRACE32-FIRE, taking advantage of all benefits and
without leaving the usual user interface. As for all TRACE32 system, the highly intuitive user
interface TRACE32-Debug makes it very easy to operate TRACE32-FIRE.
The integrated concept guaranties highest reliability in quality and support, getting everything
delivered from one single tool manufacturer.
The Debug Probe
The TRACE32-FIRE debug probe can be used alone as an entry-level
solution and be upgraded later to the customer needs. The probe supports non-intrusive debugging
at max. clock speed at a voltage range from 2.7 to 5.5V.
The Memory Mapping
Memory Mapping can be supplied through special probe emulation memory, or through the EPROM simulator
modules, with both supply high-speed download by the ETHERNET interface. All standard file formats
The On-Probe Tracebuffer
Smaller applications or team-oriented debugging can be supplied by the high-speed trace stack module.
This module brings full trace and simple trigger capabilities at a reasonable price.
The high-end Analyser
A fully featured software analyzer with more than 200 trace channels, time-stamp and complex trigger
functions supplies the user with all the advantages known from the standard emulator. Performance
analysis at real-time is supported as well as controlling real-time kernels through the advanced
debug concept of TRACE32.
The Support Package
TRACE32-FIRE has all the nice boxes known from the TRACE32-ICE like counter system, pulse and
frequency generator, scope trigger support, timing and pattern generator. The emulator can
interact with all other TRACE32 tools allowing mixed debug concepts for the whole application.
The User Interface
As for all TRACE32 system, the highly intuitive user interface
TRACE32-Debug makes it very easy to operate TRACE32-FIRE.
