TRACE32® support AMI's Aptio® V UEFI debugging for Cortex®-A and Intel® x86/x64
Hoehenkirchen-Siegertsbrunn – Lauterbach, the leading manufacturer of microprocessor development tools, is proud to announce AMI's Aptio® V UEFI BIOS firmware support in Lauterbach's TRACE32® JTAG debugger tool.
Lauterbach is recognized as the world’s largest manufacturer of hardware debug tools with more than 35 years of experience producing high-quality debug and emulator solutions. Lauterbach’s flagship TRACE32® product line includes the JTAG debugger, hardware based debugging tool. The tool contains a comprehensive UEFI BIOS debugger that allows users to start debugging at any UEFI phase, whether it is from the reset vector phase or the OS applications phase. TRACE32® supports both Intel® x86/x64 and ARM® Cortex®-A processors.
Lauterbach recently worked alongside with AMI, the leading producer of UEFI/BIOS firmware solutions, to provide Aptio® V UEFI support for Lauterbach’s TRACE32®. By adding support for Aptio® V UEFI BIOS, AMI and Lauterbach are addressing the needs of AMI’s and Lauterbach’s customers who are using the UEFI firmware and debugger tool in conjunction with one another. Customers with AMI Aptio® V firmware can now expect the ability to address persistent issues in their systems using Lauterbach’s TRACE32® to identify problems that the system encounters in various phases of booting. The added support for Aptio® V to the JTAG debugger tool bridges gaps between the two technologies and mutual customers can benefit from the support.
"As a leader in the computer technology industry, AMI is committed to providing its customers the means to advance and develop their technological solutions," commented Subramonian Shankar, President and CEO of American Megatrends. "The collaboration between AMI and Lauterbach shows the dedication from both companies to provide its mutual customers innovative and up-to-date solutions – in particular, the ability to easily debug their solutions with a convenient tool with no 'debug gaps'. AMI is pleased to have had the opportunity to work alongside Lauterbach to add Aptio V support for the JTAG debugger tool and is excited to see the developments Lauterbach have in store for its company and product lines."
“Working alongside AMI on this collaboration has allowed us to expand the support for our JTAG debugger tool,” said Stephan Lauterbach, CEO of Lauterbach GmbH. “We are proud to be able to provide debugging solutions to platforms running Aptio V BIOS from AMI. This gives our customers extra added value, as they can use TRACE32 to debug every single aspect of the boot phase and beyond. Thanks to the close cooperation we have with AMI, we can ensure up-to-date and verified debug solutions for AMI's Aptio V.” he continued.
