IAR Systems™ supports low-power-consumption ARM™ Cortex-M3™ cores with J-Trace probe and ARM Embedded Workbench tools-suite
Comprehensive development environment for embedded microprocessors based on ARM Cortex-M3 core
IAR Systems has introduced the first dedicated high-speed hardware trace probe for ARM Cortex-M3 cores. The tool, integrated with with IAR's Embedded Workbench integrated development environment, accelerates debugging because development can be carried out directly on the target hardware.
IAR J-Trace for ARM Cortex-M3 is a high speed hardware trace probe specifically developed for ARM Cortex-M3; it connects via USB to the PC host running Windows. J-Trace also works as a standard JTAG debug probe through a separate JTAG port.
IAR J-Trace uses an embedded trace macrocell (ETM) and an embedded in circuit emulator (ICE) macrocell on the target Cortex-M3 device to deliver all the real-time debug functions of a traditional emulator. It has a 4MB buffer memory.
General features of IAR J-Trace:
- USB-driven JTAG/SWD and Trace interface
