The trace functionality enables users to collect real-time trace data capture for software running on hardware systems. This Knowledge Article provides an example of a trace session performed on a ARM Cortex-A57x1 SMM.
Target system setup
Connect your DSTREAM unit to the Versatile Express system by attaching the MICTOR 38 cable to the TRACE J17 port on the LogicTile Express 20MG V2F-1XV7 board.
Debug configuration setup
In order to perform trace on A57-SMM you will need to ensure that you have either manually added the A57-SMM debug configuration to DS-5, or your DS-5 version already has support included. If you require adding the necessary configdb follow the steps below:
<A57-SMM DVD installation folder>\V2S_A57_1_0\boards\SMM-A57\software\DS-5_config\A57_SMM_20130624as a new configuration database by pressing the Add button.
Now create a new Debug Configuration which will be used for this particular trace session.
The Trace window is not located by default in the main view, so you will have to add it manually from Window → Show Window → Trace. Once the target is stopped you should be able to see some trace output. Since we are not loading any particular image, this is the trace of the Boot Monitor code.
