J-Trace PRO for Cortex-M: trace and profile in 15 minutes

October 06, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
Speeding the process of getting true instruction trace up and running is Segger's Cortex-M Trace reference board. This compact board now ships with every J-Trace PRO for Cortex-M. It can also be purchased separately from the J-Trace PRO unit.

By referring to the detailed tutorial on the Segger web site https://www.segger.com/ozone-trace-tutorial.html, engineers can experience streaming trace, real-time code profiling and code coverage in less than 15 minutes. This includes the time to download and install all necessary software. It effectively means that it has never been easier to gain access to a true ETM trace.


“Embedded systems have grown in complexity on a massive scale in recent years. IoT has given this development another boost, yet still most developers do not use trace probes. We believe that the main reason for this is the complexity of the tools. The perception is that it is too difficult to get trace up and running. With Ozone, J-Trace PRO and the new reference board, Segger raises the bar when it comes to user experience: It simply works,” says Rolf Segger, founder of Segger Microcontroller.
