Hardware-based Debugger


The C7000 is usually debugged as part of an Arm Cortex-based multicore chip. In these cases, it is sufficient to extend the TRACE32 Debug Cable by a C7000 A-license. However, it is also possible to debug a pure C7000 chip.

Target Adaptation for TI C2000/C5000/C6000/C7000 DSP

C7000 Specific Debug Features


Benchmark Counters

Benchmark counters are on-chip counters that count specific hardware events. A typical example are counters for cache hits and misses allowing the calculation of the corresponding performance metrics.

  • Configuration and observation of On-chip performance counters of cores, counting, e.g., executed instructions, cache hits and cache misses, CPU stalls, ...
  • Periodically read-out of counters during runtime (Snooper).

Cache Debugging

The instruction and data caches on C7000 devices can be accessed with TRACE32.

  • For each cache line valid bit, dirty flag, secure flag and coherency state are available.
  • Cached memory regions can be highlighted in the respective windows, e.g. the Data.dump or the List.auto window.
  • When debugging, TRACE32 can be configured to transparently display variable values from the cache (i.e. from the CPUs point of view).
  • In-depth cache analysis is provided with the CACHE command group.
