10.1. About the Serial Wire Viewer

The Instrumentation Trace Macrocell (ITM) and Serial Wire Output (SWO) can be used to form a SWV, as shown in Figure 10.1.

When the ITM and SWO are used as part of the SWV:

The ATIDM and AFREADYM outputs from the ITM are left unconnected. These signals are not required for the connection to SWO. Because of this, it is not necessary to write to the ITM Integration Register, ITATBCTR1, for integration testing against the SWO.


For more information on the ITM and SWO, see Chapter 12 Instrumentation Trace Macrocell and Chapter 11 Serial Wire Output.
