2.4.4. Word output

The STM always tries to perform 32-bit ATB writes to maximize trace bandwidth efficiency. The STM can therefore hold trace packet nibbles until enough nibbles have been generated to enable a 32-bit write. The exception to this is when:

In these cases, the STM can perform a smaller-size ATB write after byte aligning the data.
