Vitra-XD for ARM

Powerful High-Speed, High-Capacity Trace (500+ GB).

Advanced features of Vitra-XD include:

  • 502GB on-board trace storage memory (2GB DDR3 RAM and 500GB high-speed hard-disk)
  • High capacity hard drive enables long duration real-time trace data collection allowing non-intrusive profiling and code coverage analyses
  • Parallel (up to 16-bit) trace up to 400Mhz double-data rate (DDR)
  • Serial Gigabit trace (ARM HSSTP). Up to 4 lanes supported at speeds of up to 25.6Gb/s
  • Captured data can be time-stamped using Vitra-XD's 50-bit, 5ns resolution timestamp generator
  • Automatic trace clock/data skew adjustment to ensure the integrity of captured high-speed data
  • Real-time trace streaming to host PC through Gigabit Ethernet interface, allowing unlimited trace capture (pending available Host PC disk space)
  • Fine-grained adjustment of JTAG clock frequency from 1kHz to 150MHz
  • USB2, Gigabit Ethernet: High speed data interfaces to development host
  • High speed interfaces enable full speed trace data collection on many platforms

Mentor Graphics® Sourcery™ CodeBench

Vitra-XD Trace Probe integrates seamlessly with Mentor Graphics Sourcery CodeBench C/C++ debugger.

The combination of the Ashling Vitra-XD Trace Probe and Sourcery CodeBench provides an unprecedented level of trace, inspection, and debugging capabilities for real-time trace based debugging. This is enabled through dedicated Trace configuration menus available in Sourcery CodeBench, including:
  • Trigger setup (i.e. specify rules for trace capture)
  • Trace capture, upload and display
Sourcery CodeBench and Vitra-XD support both bare-metal and Linux kernel/application debugging, tracing and analysis. Sourcery CodeBench is hosted on Linux x86 and Windows™ hosts.
