Lauterbach TRACE32 Debugger for the Nios II Processor

The Lauterbach TRACE32 family of modular microprocessor development tools supports the Nios® II embedded processor. Supported feature highlights are as follows:

Key Elements for Lauterbach TRACE32 Debug Environment

  • TRACE32 PowerDebug—A cost-effective JTAG debugger probe that works in tandem with the Nios II debug core to enable debugging of Nios II based embedded systems
  • Trace Extension—By enabling the off-chip tracing option on the Nios II processor, you can use TRACE32 PowerTrace to add advanced real-time trace functionalities to your debugging capabilities
  • Download Instruction Set Simulator (ISS)—Free download for the Nios II processor, a valuable tool for developing a Nios II based system without the need for actual target hardware
  • TRACE32 PowerView—Flexible debug IDE user interface common to Trace32 PowerDebug, PowerTrace, and ISS
  • Operating system (OS) support —Provides OS kernel-aware debugging support for many operating systems that run on the Nios II processor
  • Kernel debugging support for Linux—Ideal tool for bringing up Linux kernel-based applications on custom Nios II based hardware
  • Advanced debugging support for Wind River Linux—PowerView offers advanced debugging features for Wind River Linux 2.0 for the Nios II embedded processor:
    • Wind River Linux kernel awareness
    • Kernel debugging (KGDB) over the Nios II JTAG interface
    • Application debugging over JTAG or serial interface
