PowerTrace Serial is an extension to the debug module TRACE32 PowerDebug PRO and offers a trace memory of up to 4 GByte, which can record trace data conveyed off-chip via a serial trace port.

Configuration of PowerTrace Serial

The PowerTrace Serial has two serial port connectors:
  • The picture on the left shows the use of Serial Port 0, which is designed for HSSTP trace ports with up to 6 lanes.
  • The picture in the middle shows the use of Serial Port 1, which is designed for PCIe trace ports with up to 8 lanes.
  • Other serial trace ports need an adapter to be used, as shown by the right picture.

Standard Probe/Analog Probe

In addition to the regular trace features PowerTrace Serial can be used as a 17 channel logic analyzer with the provided Standard Probe for transient recording, simple triggering, protocol analysis etc. With the TRACE32 Analog Probe which could be ordered seperately the voltage and current values can be measured for energy profiling. PowerTrace Serial provides a 1024K trace memory for this purpose.
