WHITE PAPER on Real-time trace – a better way to debug embedded applications
This joint Ashling and Synopsys whitepaper presents the concept of debugging with ‘real-time trace’ hardware assistance and shows its benefits, including how it can vastly reduce the amount of time needed to track down problems in the code. The paper also introduces the other benefits available with a real-time trace system, such as hot-spot profiling and code coverage.
