PowerTrace Serial is an extension to the debug module TRACE32 PowerDebug X50 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 HSSTP and PCIe trace ports with up to 8 lanes.
  • Other serial trace ports need an adapter to be used, as shown by the right picture.

Speed Booster for Aurora-Based Trace Protocols

Preprocessor Aurora 2 for PowerTrace Serial
  • Preprocessor Aurora 2 for PowerTrace Serial delivers up to
    4 lanes at up to 22.5 Gbit/s per lane
  • License-free preprocessor, license holder remains PowerTrace Serial

Probe Options

  • With TRACE32 Standard Probe PowerTrace Serial can be used as a 17 channel logic analyzer for transient recording, simple triggering, protocol analysis etc.

  • With TRACE32 Analog Probe PowerTrace Serial can be used to measure the voltage and current values for energy profiling.
PowerTrace Serial provides a 1024K trace memory for this purpose.
