Technical Support



The RISC Trace for SH4 uses the trace port of the controllers for sampling the program flow information.

  • 200 MHz Operation
  • Up to 2MFrames with RISC Trace
  • 64 MFrames with PowerTrace
  • Hardware based code coverage with PowerTrace

Hardware Code Coverage with PowerTrace

  • 4 Segments with 4 MByte each
  • 160 MHz operation frequency


Trace Modules

Real-time Trace
  • 1, 2 or 4 GByte trace memory
  • Universal trace module, connect to target via architecture-dependent trace probes (Preprocessor)
  • Support for all parallel trace ports up to 19.2 Gbit/s, e.g. 16 bit up to 300MHz DDR sample rate
  • Support for serial trace ports up to 4 lanes, each lane max. 6.5 Gbit/s
  • Support for streaming up to 1.6 Gbit/s
  • Additional independent 17 channel logic analyzer (with Standard Probe)
  • Energy Profiling (with optional Analog Probe)
  • PODBUS Express interface to PowerDebug PRO (successor of PowerDebug II)
  • PODBUS and PODBUS Express interfaces to Logic Analyzer modules, e.g. PowerProbe, PowerIntegrator


Support Software

  • Software trace of any size stored in an array structure on the target
  • General trace format provided by TRACE32-PowerView
  • Configuration and display commands provided by TRACE32-PowerView
  • Works as trace with address and data information
  • Works as a program flow trace (SH4, PowerPC)
  • Time stamp possible
  • Predefined algorithms to fill the trace provided by Lauterbach
  • User defined algorithms to fill the trace also possible

Trace-based Debugging (CTS)
  • Allows re-debuggging of a traced program section
  • Provides forward and backward debugging capabilities
  • High-level language trace display including all local variables
  • Timing and function nesting display
  • Has the ability to fill most trace gaps caused by the limited bandwidth of trace port

  • Fills in missing code
  • Direct branch reconstruction
  • Indirect branch reconstuction with CTS
  • Memory and Register values from CTS


Compatible Debugger

SH Debugger
