In order to make it easy to get true instruction trace up and running, SEGGER has just introduced the new Cortex-M Trace reference board.
This compact board now ships with every J-Trace PRO for Cortex-M. It can also be purchased apart from the J-Trace PRO unit, so every customer can take advantage of the new reference board.
By referring to the detailed tutorial on the SEGGER web site, engineers can experience streaming trace, real-time code profiling and code coverage in less than 15 minutes. This includes the time to download and install all necessary software. It effectively means that it has never been easier to gain access to a true ETM trace.
“Embedded systems have grown in complexity on a massive scale in recent years. IoT has given this development another boost, yet still most developers do not use trace probes. We believe that the main reason for this is the complexity of the tools. The perception is that it is too difficult to get trace up and running. With Ozone, J-Trace PRO and the new reference board, SEGGER raises the bar when it comes to user experience: It simply works,” says Rolf Segger, founder of SEGGER Microcontroller.
