Version 4.1.5 adds IAR streaming support

We are happy to announce an update of Tracealyzer, v4.1.5, bringing trace streaming support for IAR Embedded Workbench, allowing IAR users to fully benefit from the powerful capabilities of Tracealyzer 4 using IAR I-Jet probes. This leverages the ITM module found on most Arm Cortex-M3, M4 and M7 MCUs. With a fast debug probe like IAR I-Jet, ITM allows for high data rates and low tracing overhead. Moreover, unlike some other streaming solutions we support, this does not require a RAM buffer for the event data. Many thanks to Renesas for supporting this work.

Read Percepio Application Note PA-023 to learn how to use setup Tracealyzer and IAR Embedded Workbench for ITM streaming. Support for other IDEs and debug probes is planned to follow later this year.

This video shows how it is used in practice.
