We are proud to announce the availability of Tracealyzer for µC/OS-III, targeting embedded software developers using Micrium’s popular RTOS. In collaboration with Micrium we have also integrated support for Tracealyzer in the latest version of µC/OS-III (v3.0.6) which makes it very easy to get started.
Tracealyzer for µC/OS-III visualizes the real-time behavior of the firmware running Micrium µC/OS-III and offers over 25 views of the runtime world, giving amazing insight into the runtime world that accelerates debugging, validation and optimization.
Micrium’s new µC/OS-III v3.0.6 includes Percepio’s latest tracing libraries for both “streaming” and “snapshot” trace and these can also be integrated in older versions of µC/OS-III. They allow you to easily record the task scheduling in µC/OS-III and related events, including the kernel API calls made by the application code. You can also record Interrupt Service Routines (ISRs) and other exceptions. Moreover, you can easily record any event or data from your application code and visualize this in Tracealyzer.
In the streaming trace mode the data is transferred continuously to the host PC and allows for practically unlimited recording length. The snapshot tracing mode also works without host PC connection, e.g, in field testing or deployed operation.
Percepio Launches Tracealyzer for Micrium’s µC/OS-III with Streaming Trace
Västerås, Sweden, 7th July 2016 – Percepio AB, the Swedish developer of RTOS visualization tools, today announced the launch of Tracealyzer for Micrium’s µC/OS-III® with streaming trace. The new Tracealyzer for µC/OS-III is built on Percepio’s latest Tracealyzer 3.0 platform and contains its streaming trace recorder, which allows for capturing arbitrarily long trace recordings as well as the traditional snapshot (RAM buffer) recorder. The new Tracealyzer for µC/OS-III is an easy upgrade for licensed users of µC/Trace.
Percepio founder and CEO Dr. Johan Kraft said “Having Micrium’s µC/OS-III under the Tracealyzer umbrella will benefit its users and enable us to provide the same level of support and frequent updates as our other Tracealyzer products.”
“There are many challenges related to products incorporating an RTOS, which often aren’t revealed until the product has been up and running for some time,” said Jean Labrosse, president and CEO of Micrium. “What Percepio has achieved with Tracealyzer is to remove the guesswork of designing an RTOS-based system. It’s ability to record and then analyze what’s happening potentially over hours of run-time, gives developers a view into their system that would be impossible to have otherwise.”
Percepio’s market-leading visualization offers 25+ views, which are cleverly interconnected to allow viewing the trace from multiple perspectives, including CPU usage, memory allocation, task synchronization and communication, in parallel with custom application logging.
