Press Room

Ashling Microsystems, has announced the availability of a sophisticated embedded Linux debugger for MIPS based applications. Ashlings PathFinder-XD Eclipse based debugger allows users to switch seamlessly between kernel space debugging and process/user space debugging within a single debug environment. This integrated approach provides users with an exceptionally powerful debug tool to resolve complex Linux related issues and considerably speeds up the debug process when compared to a more traditional setup.

PathFinder-XD supports Embedded Linux Debugging for kernels based on v2.6 or later and provides the user with two debug modes:
• Stop-mode debugging is done via the on-chip debug interface using Ashling’s Opella-XD probe connected to a JTAG connector on the users target.
Run-mode debugging is done via a target serial/Ethernet interface and requires an application (GDB server) to be running on the target.

PathFinder-XDs integrated run and stop mode debugging enables users to have a very flexible and powerful debug environment for complex debug scenarios including: debugging Linux kernel and modules, debugging dynamically loadable Modules/Drivers, debugging Linux processes and libraries, debugging a module from init_module() or an already inserted module and debugging a process from main() or an already running process. PathFinder-XD displays the list of running processes and inserted modules along with the module structure and symbols.

PathFinder-XD with Embedded Linux Debugging is available directly from Ashling and its sales representatives worldwide. Contact details are on the Ashling website at www.ashling.com.
