5.6. Trace synchronization in ETMv1

For large trace captures the first trace sample is likely to be lost from the TPA (overwritten by a newer trace sample) by the time that the trigger event occurs. For this reason it is necessary to periodically output synchronization information so that the decompression of the trace can be accomplished successfully. The ETMv1 trace synchronization mechanisms are described in the following sections:
