CoreSight SoC

Enabling efficient design of custom debug and trace subsystems for complex SoCs.

popularity

To address the challenge of increasing development cost and complexity faced by the semiconductor industry, SoC designers need to think ahead and provide the right hardware platform to help software developers create optimized software in a timely manner. The goal of this paper is to show, through high level steps, how to create a custom debug and trace subsystem for a design quickly and easily. This paper will be of interest to those who want to learn about debug and trace for System-on-Chips (SoCs) and be of specific interest to the following:

  • Product Managers who want their SoC product to be developed faster (hardware/software co- development, early bring-up of silicon for faster time-to-market), to be more robust (fewer bugs and reduced debug time) and to be performant (profiling, benchmarking and optimization).
  • SoC architects interested in building reliable, advanced and efficient debug and trace solutions for their SoCs with reduced time and effort.
