The Right Trace Probe for Your Target
The trace probe connects your target’s trace port to the PowerTrace module. Depending on your target, we may call it a Preprocessor or a Nexus Adapter.
Our trace probes support trace connectors, pinouts, and electrical needs for various architectures and SoCs. We have the right probe to connect your target's trace port smoothly to the PowerTrace module.
Trace Probes Loaded with Our Know-How
Our knowledge and experience in off-chip trace technology enable us to design trace probes that work with all kinds of core architectures, trace protocols, and physical interfaces. We have the right probe for your SoC.
Preserve your investment
Our modular system allows you to preserve your tool investment as you move from one project to another. If your project suddenly shifts, you can swap out the trace probe on your existing PowerDebug/PowerTrace System to align with your new needs.
Trace multiple cores concurrently
Our trace probes support trace wrapper protocols that combine trace streams from various core architectures into a single trace stream. This lets you capture the program flow of all cores inside your SoC concurrently with just one probe.
Connect to every target
Your target will require a connector to give the trace probe access to the signals. There are many different connectors to choose from. This allows you to balance space, cost, and other concerns. We provide a wide range of converters to adapt your trace probe to the trace connector on your target.
Reach the Maximum Bandwidth with our Autofocus Technology
Our Preprocessor's AutoFocus technology ensures reliable trace capture. It does this by automatically tuning the sampling point of each signal on your parallel trace port. This reduces the cost and concern of board routing and length matching. And gives you maximum trace data throughput.Know the AutoFocus technology
