Low-Cost Cortex-M3 Emulator with Real-Time Trace
– March 1, 2009 – Signum Systems Corp., a debug and emulation tool
company today announced a JTAGjet-Trace-CM3 emulator that provides
development and debugging support with real-time trace for Cortex-M3
Signum Systems’ JTAGjet-Trace-CM3 emulator supports all Cortex-M3 based
devices equipped with Embedded Trace Macrocell (ETM). Silicon
manufacturers that provide Cortex-M3 based microcontrollers with ETM
trace include NXP, ST Micro, Texas Instruments and Toshiba.
The new emulator comes with high-speed (480 Mbps) USB 2.0 port,
Chameleon Debugger and a driver for Keil/ARM uVision debugger.
The on-board 4.5 MBytes of trace memory is used to capture and store in
real-time the execution path of the Cortex-M3 device to add extra
visibility into the executing code and allow tracing of the selected
The trace information may be filtered in real-time to allow only the
relevant information to be stored in the trace buffer. Once captured the
information may be further filtered to make the process of finding and
identifying captured information faster and easier. Connection to target
is via a flexible 4-in cable terminated with a high-density, 20-pin
The included Chameleon Debugger for Cortex-M3 is a professional debugger
designed specifically for all embedded systems development needs, from
low-level driver development and application debugging to system testing
and verification. The debugger is compatible with all ARM compilers that
produce the ELF files. For added convenience, the emulator seamlessly
integrates with Keil uVision3 debugger.
JTAGjet-Trace-CM3 emulator is available now at an introductory price of
$1,500. For more information please contact Signum Systems Corp. at
