Simplifies development with complex heterogeneous high-end SoCs: PLS' UDE 4.6 once again sets new standards in the areas of trace functions, multicore debugging and test automationLauta (Germany), )
The Universal Emulation Configurator (UEC) of the UDE for definition of trace-based measurement tasks has been expanded with a library for the Mini-MCDS (Multi-Core Debug Solution) of the current AURIX devices from Infineon. This means that some of the diagnostic possibilities, which until now were only offered by special Emulation Devices, are now available for the first time in production chips. A JTAG standard debug interface or Debug Access Port (DAP) on the target is the only requirement for the use of this feature.
Another significant innovation: With the UDE 4.6, support for Synopsys’ Virtualizer simulator platform has been expanded to multicore systems. Therefore, the UDE can also be used as a frontend for multicore simulations based on AUIRX/TriCore, Power Architecture or ARM core models.
Furthermore, thanks to the innovative approach of persistent trace streams within the UDE, export of trace data as well as their subsequent import and an offline analysis without a cost-intensive Hardware-in-the-Loop (HiL) target environment is also now possible. Management of the various trace recordings with freely selectable designations and exact timestamps takes place directly in the debugger’s user interface. Smart filter functions for the symbol and peripheral register selection simplify the navigation even in large applications and very complex SoCs.
The Microsoft Component Object Model (COM)-based software interface of the UDE also presents itself even more convenient and powerful than before. For example, the possibilities for loading multicore applications as well as setting breakpoints by third-party tools have been significantly enhanced and simplified. Additional completely new functions now allow automatic configuration, execution and documentation of code coverage measurements both by own macros and also by external tools. This effectively supports the creation of test workflows for ensuring the software quality in compliance with ISO 26262.
The complete cross-debugger functionality of the UDE 4.6 is also available as an own debug perspective also within the Eclipse environment including the current Eclipse version 4.5 (Mars) and CDT 8.7.
