Trace 32 PowerTrace

Trace 32 PowerTrace Banner

PowerTrace modules are extensions to the debug module TRACE32 PowerDebug PRO. They provide the memory for recording core, bus or system trace information via parallel or serial trace ports. Their super-fast memory controller guarantees:

  • Continuous recording of trace data even at very high bandwidth.
  • On demand, streaming of trace data to the host computer.

Trace information is timestamped (5 ns resolution) when stored. The decoding of core trace data requires a suitable license. All PowerTrace variants have PODBUS Express interface to PowerDebug PRO that allows a fast upload of the trace information to the host computer.

PowerTrace II / III

PowerTrace II / III

PowerTrace II / III connect to the target via a TRACE32 Preprocessor.

  • TRACE32 AutoFocus II Preprocessor

    Records trace information at a parallel trace port (up to 32-bit). It is pre-licensed for a core trace protocol at delivery. Licenses for additional core traces can be added later.
  • TRACE32 Serial Preprocessor

    Records trace information at a serial trace port that uses an Aurora based protocol. Supported are up to 4 RX lanes, each lane up to 6.5 Gbit/s.

PowerTrace Serial

PowerTrace Serial records and stores trace information at serial ports that use an Aurora or PCIe 3.0 based protocol. Supported are up to 8 RX/TX lanes, each lane up to 12.5 Gbit/s. It is pre-licensed for a core trace protocol at delivery. Licenses for additional core traces can be added later.

The characteristics of PowerTrace Serial at a glance:

  • 4 GByte trace memory
  • Maximum bandwidth of 100 GBit/s
  • Support for TRACE32 Streaming up to 400 MByte/s
  • TRACE32 Standard Probe included
  • (17 digital channels)
