Version 4.3.8 of Tracealyzer updates the target-side recorder to work with the most recent version of FreeRTOS, v10.3, and adds two new hardware ports.
The ”theme” of this year’s Arm TechCon conference is of course … Arm. Over 4000 embedded systems specialists are expected to descend upon Santa Clara, California, in two weeks to discuss all things Arm, from silicon design and software development to computer vision and the Internet of Things. Among these enthusiasts is of course a [...]
You may have heard about "Running Snail", a team of German university students building an electric race car as a school project – we blogged about them last year. Now they're at it again, they will build a new car for the 2017/18 competitive season, and of course Percepio will continue to sponsor the team with licenses [...]
Embedded system complexity has reached the point where many systems require a real-time operating system. In this webinar, attendees will become familiar with the design methodologies necessary to properly schedule tasks in addition to understanding when and where to use mutexes, semaphores and message queues. Important concepts such as preventing priority inversions, deadlock and thread [...]
We are really excited to finally release Tracealyzer for FreeRTOS version 3.1, our largest update in over a year! Most of the effort has gone into the new trace recorder library, that now provides both snapshot and streaming trace in a single module with just three .c files. It has an improved common API for both [...]
The improved trace recorder library is the biggest change in Tracealyzer v3.1, at least for FreeRTOS, Micrium and SafeRTOS. We have merged snapshot and streaming support into a single recorder module that support both modes, and improved the API and documentation to make it easier to use. If you are using an older version of the [...]
When Surrey Space Centre was to validate an RTOS-based communications firmware for an ESA satellite, ESEO, they turned to Percepio Tracealyzer. In this video, Dr Chris Bridges and Pete Bartrum explains the satellite design, requirements and why they decided to use Tracealyzer. As you can imagine, firmware that is going into space has strict requirements on dependability [...]

Check out this new series of Tracealyzer tutorial videos that one of our users made last week. They include everything from using STM32 CubeMX to create a project, configuring the trace library, debug probe, and STM32 Nucleo board, all the way using Tracealyzer to view the FreeRTOS trace data. New Tracealyzer video tutorial series: Tutorial [...]
Delivering ultra-low power operation in IoT nodes means they will spend most of their time in a dormant mode, waiting to exchange data with a gateway. Could employing an RTOS help deliver a more reliable user experience? Read our latest white paper where Dr. Johan Kraft, Founder and CEO of Percepio, examines some of the [...]
Being able to measure the timing of RTOS tasks and interrupts is key to understanding the performance of a real-time system. Measuring response time is easy, but then what? Understanding the contributing factors behind performance anomalies requires good visualization that can explain the data. Read our white paper about how Tracealyzer can help you [...]
Day 1 at Microchip Masters Conference. Steve Sanghi, Microchip CEO delivered the keynote, and kicked off 20 years of Microchip Masters Conferences! If you're attending, stop by the Percepio stand, say hello to Niclas and find out about how world leading visualizations can speed your debugging processes. If you're not attending, download Tracealyzer and [...]
Youtube user "Millsinghion" has made several FreeRTOS video tutorials and recently discovered Tracealyzer for FreeRTOS. Check his new video tutorial, how to get started and how to visualize the real-time behavior of his FreeRTOS system, for instance semaphores, I2C events and ADC readings. Percepio’s market-leading visualization offers 25+ views, which are cleverly interconnected to allow viewing [...]
Steve Evans of Open Pilot Next Generation (OPNG) explains how they have used Percepio Tracealyzer to finely tune their flight controllers and ensure deterministic performance. They needed to perform some in depth analysis of their code timing, which runs on an STM32F4xx MCU under FreeRTOS. The best single characteristic of Tracealyzer for FreeRTOS can be summed up [...]
