Abstract: The introduction of complex SoCs with multiple processor cores presents new development challenges, such that development support is now a decisive factor when choosing a System-on-Chip (SoC). The presented developments support strategy addresses the challenges using both architecture and technology approaches. The Multi-Core Debug Support (MCDS) architecture provides flexible triggering using cross triggers and a multiple core break and suspend switch. Temporal trace ordering is guaranteed down to cycle leve…
