µTrace supports Microsemis SmartFusion®2 SoC FPGA Family
Hoehenkirchen-Siegertsbrunn - September, 2013 - Lauterbach, the leading manufacturer of microprocessor development tools, announced that its new product µTrace now supports Microsemi Corporation's SmartFusion2 SoC FPGAs.
µTrace is an all-in-one solution supporting both debug and trace for SmartFusion2 SoC FPGAs. By the use of simple and complex breakpoints the developer can control the operation of the program and analyze the data in C and C++. The tool uses USB 3.0 for connection to the host and can connect to the target via JTAG, Serial Wire Debug (SWD) or cJTAG (IEEE 1149.7). When the system is used in tracing mode, the tool has an internal 256Mbyte memory buffer but it can also be set to stream data to the host if the user needs to collect the program flow data for longer periods.
"Microsemi's SmartFusion2 SoC FPGAs are the most secure devices of their type available today and it is important to our customers to support this innovative device with our debugging and tracing solutions," said Jerry Flake, Sales Manager for Lauterbach Inc. "µTrace analyzes code, optimizes runtime, validates the system and delivers affordable excellence."
"Lauterbach's development tools are particularly well-suited for higher-end debugging applications, especially those in the safety critical space which is a key market for our highly secure SoC FPGAs," said Tim Morin, Director at Microsemi. "We are pleased to add Lauterbach as a SmartFusion2 SOC FPGA ecosystem partner and offer our customers a broader portfolio of debug and development tools."
SmartFusion2 SoC FPGA
Microsemi's SmartFusion2 SoC FPGAs are the only devices that address fundamental requirements for advanced security, high reliability and low power in critical industrial, military, aviation, communications and medical applications. SmartFusion2 integrates an inherently reliable flash-based FPGA fabric, a 166 megahertz (MHz) ARM® Cortex™-M3 processor, advanced security processing accelerators, DSP blocks, SRAM, eNVM, and industry-required high-performance communication interfaces all on a single chip.
