Percepio embOS-Trace is designed for use with SEGGER J-Link debuggers and allow for continuous trace streaming on any J-Link debugger, for essentially unlimited durations. All you need is a SEGGER J-Link/J-Trace debug probe, an updated version of SEGGER embOS (version 4.06b or later) and our trace recorder library, included in the embOS-Trace installation.
Percepio embOS-Trace uses software-defined trace, which makes it robust, flexible and easy to use. The events are written to a target-side RAM buffer (a few KB), and then extracted by the SEGGER J-Link debugger via live memory reads, without interfering with executing system. The transfer is very fast and robust.
“With the increasing complexity of embedded software, runtime visualization is becoming a ‘must-have’ in the developers’ toolbox. Percepio offers an amazing visualization tool that without doubt will be very useful for many embedded developers.”
