Probe model supports streaming trace from Cortex A, R and M
From Segger comes the J-Trace Pro Cortex, the streaming trace probe model that can support streaming trace from Cortex-A, Cortex-R, and Cortex-M targets. In addition to the Gigabit Ethernet interface, it now comes with a USB 3 SuperSpeed interface which can transfer trace data in real time to the host even at full trace clock speeds, says Segger.
The host software can store, analyse and visualise the data in real time over unlimited periods of time, supporting the full bandwidth of the target interface of up to 1.2GBit/s.
J-Trace PRO Cortex uses Ozone, the fully featured graphical debug and performance analyser for embedded applications. Ozone is an advanced professional debug and verification application that can use ELF files produced by any EABI-compliant tool such as Segger Embedded Studio, Eclipse/GCC, IAR Embedded Workbench or Keil/ARM MDK, to debug and analyse at the source level.
Ozone provides real-time code profiling and real-time code coverage in combination with the streaming trace technology of the J-Trace PRO Cortex.
Segger says that it takes less than 15 minutes to get up and running with the new trace probe, as it ships with a Cortex-M target hardware, with ELF file and project for Embedded Studio readily available.
“Debugging and verification tools have progressed significantly in the past couple of years. We believe that the combination of Ozone and J-Trace PRO is the best trace solution in the industry,” says says Alex Gruener, chief technology officer at SEGGER Microcontroller.
“Code profiling of a running system provides instant, accurate performance measurements rather than the optimistic ‘ideal’ results from a simulated environment. With J-Trace and Ozone such systems are quick to set up and define the user experience: It simply works!”, says Gruener.
