Advanced Debug & Trace


We will have a quick look on the fundamentals using TRACE32 to reach a common base of TRACE32 experience. The command set as well as the PDF documentation and usage of the help system is always essential. Then we start from intermediate level explaining AMP/SMP debugging, the difference between onchip and software breakpoints as well as run-time memory access and other memory access classes. After this we are focusing on tracing regarding timing, performance, statistics, code-coverage and functional safety.

All this new skills are used to proceed to the complex field of debugging and tracing an application running a RTOS. It might be a common one like FreeRTOS, VxWorks or AutoSAR ore even a proprietary one. As nice to have there a further topics like: remote control (e.g. via Python) and scripting with dialogs.
