Trace Modules

PowerTrace II
  • 1, 2 or 4 GByte trace memory
  • Universal trace module, connect to target via architecture-dependent trace probes (parallel or serial preprocessor)
  • Maximum bandwidth of 19,2 GBit/s
  • Fast trace upload to the host computer
  • Support for parallel trace ports with up to 32-bit at 300 MHz DDR
  • Support for serial trace ports, each lane max. 6.5 Gbit/s, but only up to 19,2 GBit/s in total
  • Support for TRACE32 Streaming up to 200 MByte/s, compression allows higher data rates to be achieved
  • PODBUS Express interface to PowerDebug PRO
  • PODBUS and PODBUS Express interfaces to Logic Analyzer modules, e.g. PowerProbe, PowerIntegrator
  • Additional independent 17 channel logic analyzer (with included Standard Probe)
  • Energy Profiling (with optional Analog Probe)


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
  • Interface to all compilers in C and C++
  • Unlimited number of software breakpoints
  • Full support for all on-chip breakpoints and trigger features
  • FLASH programming
  • RTOS awareness
  • Statistical performance analysis
  • Branch trace
  • Software trace based on the branch trace for SH4 (unlimited size)
  • Realtime trace based on AUD with up to 2M frames trace depth up to 200MHz
  • Non intrusive trace based performance analysis
