At the  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.

Our highlights at a glance

  • True Multicore Debugger - Sophisticated run control and debugging within one consistent user interface
  • TriCore Development Platform – Complete Eclipse based development platform for all TriCore derivatives AUDO-Future, AUDO-MAX and AURIX devices (TC3xx, TC29x, TC27x, TC26x, TC23x)
  • PowerArchitecture Development Platform – Complete Eclipse based development platform for MPC57xx/MPC56xx microcontrollers from NXP and the SPC5 family from STM including SPC58 series
  • Hardware Security Modul (HSM) and Generic Timer Modul (GTM) support
  • Powerful Trace Functions - AURORA trace pod for UAD3+ supporting up to 4 lanes a 3,25 GBit/s, Universal Emulation Configurator (UEC) for AURIX/TriCore, SPC57/SPC58, MPC57xx and XC2000 emulation devices for graphical definition of trace task for on-chip units, Parallel trace (CoreSight, Nexus) with Universal Access Device 3+ (UAD3+)
  • Comprehensive trace analysis - Fast search in large amounts of captured trace data
  • System Level Debugging – Profiling and Code coverage functions.
  • RTOS awareness for OSEK RealTime Interface (ORTI)
  • UAD2next combines state-of-the-art debug functionality, a CAN interface as well as a flexible, modular trace interface technology.
