Support for Xilinx Vivado Design Suite HLx Editions
TRACE32, the world leading debug tool from Lauterbach, now includes integration with the Xilinx Vivado Design Suite
Hoehenkirchen-Siegertsbrunn – February 2017 – Lauterbach, the leading manufacturer of microprocessor development tools announce that they have added an additional integration to their popular TRACE32 debug tool. This new integration allows the Xilinx Vivado Design Suite to share the Lauterbach JTAG connection to Zynq-7000 or Zynq UltraScale+™ SoCs.
In addition to the entire set of TRACE32 advanced debug features users can now take advantage of the powerful diagnostic features and FPGA programming capabilities of Vivado® as well as analyzing internal FPGA signals via the Integrated Logic Analyzer. All of these tools can be used concurrently utilising a shared connection provided by the Lauterbach hardware. TRACE32 provides complete software debug support for ARM Cortex based processors as well as MicroBlaze soft cores running stand-alone or in a multi-core system. With support for over 50 embedded real-time operating systems, MMU awareness and hypervisor support, TRACE32 allows developers to debug any part of the system from a single easy to use interface.
Says Barry Lock, Lauterbachs´ UK Sales Manager “This is the breakthrough that some of our customers have been waiting for; the ability to debug hardware and software in parallel. We feel this integration offers developers an un-paralleled level of visibility into an embedded system and should enable them to produce better quality systems in a more timely fashion.”
