Percepio’s Tracealyzer now tracks Micrium’s µC/OS-III with streaming trace

July 07, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
With an upgrade available to licensed users of the µC/Trace embedded software tracing tool, Percepio (Västerås, Sweden) has introduced Tracealyzer for Micrium’s µC/OS-III with streaming trace.

Tracealyzer for µC/OS-III is built on Percepio’s latest Tracealyzer 3.0 platform and contains its streaming trace recorder, which allows for capturing arbitrarily long trace recordings as well as the traditional snapshot (RAM buffer) recorder. The new Tracealyzer for µC/OS-III is an upgrade for licensed users of µC/Trace.

 

“There are many challenges related to products incorporating an RTOS, which often aren’t revealed until the product has been up and running for some time,” said Jean Labrosse, president and CEO of Micrium. “What Percepio has achieved with Tracealyzer is to remove the guesswork of designing an RTOS-based system. It’s ability to record and then analyze what’s happening potentially over hours of run-time, gives developers a view into their system that would be impossible to have otherwise."

 

Percepio’s visualization offers 25+ views, which are interconnected to allow viewing the trace from multiple perspectives, including CPU usage, memory allocation, task synchronization and communication, in parallel with custom application logging.
