6.3.3. Target hardware requirements

RealView Trace supports processors containing any of the ARM processor family, and ETMv1.x and v3.x. The board containing the processor must have a trace port connector. See Appendix C RealView Trace Interface Connections.


RealView ICE supports systems with multiple trace sources. For information on how to configure the trace source, see the Release Note that accompanies this release.


Target hardware running at high frequencies and not following the design guidelines specified in Appendix D Designing the Target Board for Tracing might exhibit irregularities in the trace data. Typical symptoms of this are missed triggers, trace data synchronization failures, and memory access failures. Ensure that your target hardware is capable of running at the selected frequency.
