The PowerTools line of ICD modules integrates high-performance controller and FPGA technology with fast network access.

TRACE32 PowerTools are the fastest debuggers for 32-Bit RISC controllers available now.

The tool line integrates debugging, program and data trace as well as logic analysis (off and on-chip) in one system.

Technical Support



The ICD PowerTools product line covers high-performance tools for harddware/software integration with high-speed 16 and 32-bit microcontrollers and cores.

The debugger and trace system is driven by a high-speed powerpc with 260 MIPS performance and connected to USB or ETHERNET. Download speed up to 2 MByte/sec through JTAG interface is possible, the analyzer data can be uploaded with an effective data rate
of 20 MByte/sec. by using 100 MHz Ethernet and compressing technologies.
