PowerTrace III / II LITE for the ARM ETM/PTM samples all trace data with rates up to 600 Mbit/s per trace channel into the trace buffer. TRACE32 offers intuitive access to all ETM features.

More than 600 Mbit/s per trace channel with TRACE32 AUTOFOCUS II Preprocessor using AUTOFOCUS self calibration technology.


TRACE32 Trace Features

Trace-based Profiling
  • Detailed analysis of function run-times
  • Detailed analysis of task run-times and state
  • Graphical analysis of variable values over the time
  • Analysis of the time interval of a single event (e.g. Interrupt)
  • Analysis of the time interval between 2 defined events

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

AUTOSAR Profiling
  • Long-term commitment to AUTOSAR as active contributor
  • Profiling for AUTOSAR Classic and Adaptive Platform
  • Profiling for ORTI and ARTI
  • Longstanding close partnership with AUTOSAR providers
  • Concurrent profiling of AUTOSAR Classic and Adaptive Platform

Trace-based Code Coverage
  • Provides all metrics for functional safety
  • For standard trace protocols TRACE32 Code Coverage gets by with no or very little instrumentation, full instrumentation as fallback
  • Suitable for long-term testing
  • Automated report generation in multiple exchange formats
  • TRACE32 Trace-Based Code Coverage is included in the scope of delivery of all TRACE32 Debug & Trace Tools at no additional cost
