CoreSight SoC-400 Debug & Trace

ARM® CoreSight™ SoC-400 is the comprehensive debug & trace solution for system design. Until now CoreSight components have always been provided as part of a processor-specific design kit. Design kits include a simple example of a debug & trace system for a single core system. CoreSight SoC-400 provides fully configurable versions of all of the CoreSight components together with CoreSight Creator support for the entire range of CoreSight debug & trace logic.

CoreSight SoC-400 enables quick and easy creation of complex custom debug and trace System IP stitching and test-bench generation.

The current trend in the electronics industry is towards increasingly complex hardware with ever-rising software development costs with much-reduced time-to-market. Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) are expecting silicon providers to give a reliable and complete hardware and software system ready for applications development, and this is a key differentiator.

A well thought-out debug and trace solution helps silicon providers address these challenges.

Customer Successes

Samsung

"ARM CoreSight debug and trace technology was instrumental to the successful bring-up of the Exynos 7870. When designers are working on optimizations to eke out the maximum performance, there is peace of mind in knowing that CoreSight gives the best real-time trace delivering visibility onto the chip fast in order to fine tune the performance" Samsung Exynos 7870

Xilinx

"In addition, ARM CoreSight debug and trace technology was implemented in the chip’s development to provide on-chip visibility that enables fast diagnosis of bugs and performance analysis. Amongst other things, CoreSight ensures it meets the high quality standards required by ISO 26262." Xilinx Zynq-7000
