SourcePoint debugger speeds up STM trace processing

Asset InterTech has modified its Arium hardware-assisted SourcePoint debugger to support the processing of ARM's CoreSight System Trace Macrocell (STM), which provides trace data visibility to developers of multi-core, multi-threaded SoCs. SourcePoint shortens the duration of STM trace processing from milliseconds to microseconds, Asset said.

The SourcePoint debugger for ARM allows users to overlay a system framework onto the SoC environment. According to the manufacturer, this framework significantly speeds the tracking of bugs through trace data back to their sources.

In addition, SourcePoint accelerates embedded STM trace processing to the point where its effects on system performance are negligible. The processing of individual trace statements can be reduced from milliseconds to microseconds.

Two Asset Arium hardware modules support the SourcePoint debugger. The LC-500S is a run-control probe capable of configuring and accessing trace data and storing it on-chip or on the target platform. The LX-1000 trace port analyser supplies 2GB of memory for storing trace results off-chip.

Asset's SourcePoint ARM debugger is available now from Asset InterTech and its distributors. Solutions start at $4950.
