TRACE32 Now Supports ARM CortexTM-A5


The Cortex-A5 micro architecture is delivered within either a single core processor or a scalable multicore processor, the Cortex-A5 MPCoreTM, which consists of up to four Cortex-A5 cores in a cluster. They are designed for applications that demand high performance and lower power consumption.

The Cortex-A5 Embedded Trace MacrocellTM (ETM) provides non-intrusive program-flow trace capabilities for either of the Cortex-A5 processors for full visibility into the processor's instruction flow and enabling profiling analysis.

The TRACE32 tools further support the CoreSightTM technology for the Cortex-A5 processor. It extends the debug and trace capability to cover the entire system-on-chip including multiple ARM processors and DSPs.

TRACE32 offers full OS-aware support for all popular operating systems running on asymmetric multiprocessing (AMP) or symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) systems.
