FPGA-Adaptive Debugging

  • Synchronous execution control through HPS-FPGA hardware cross triggers
  • Qsys FPGA peripheral registers auto-imported into software debugger
  • USB Blaster II: one probe for hardware and software debug

Linux and RTOS Support

  • Optimized code generation for RTOS and baremetal with ARM Compiler 5
  • OS aware debug views, including tasks and data structures
  • System performance analyzer (ARM Streamline)

Non-instrusive System Trace

  • Core-dependent CoreSight PTM program trace
  • System-wide CoreSight STM instrumentation trace
  • Global timestamp-based synchronisation of trace streams
