embedded world 2017 – the leading international fair for embedded systems – PLS Development Tools presented many new features and improvements for debugging and trace with the new release of their Universal Debug Engine® (UDE) and the new powerful Universal Access Device 2next (UAD2next).
Again, we saw great interest for our comprehensive support for UDE's outstanding multi-core support. UDE allows a very efficiently and user-friendly debugging even for the latest multicore microcontrollers like Infineon’s AURIX TC39 with six cores within a uniform and consistent environment.
Visitors could see new functions and improvements for UDE, especially for trace analysis of huge amounts of trace data. Single events or sequences of events can now be searched in a very fast manner. The search results are presented to the user by bookmarks which allow a very easy and comfortable navigation. In addition, call graphs together with comprehensive analysis capabilities provide a deep insight into the runtime behavior of the application.
For the very first time, PLS introduced its powerful Universal Access Device 2next (UAD2next). With the UAD2next PLS consequentially continues the development of universal, robust and high speed access devices for debugging and trace of multicore microcontrollers in deeply embedded systems. For the first time the UAD2next combines state-of-the-art debug functionality, a CAN interface as well as a flexible, modular trace interface technology.
