Yesterday, we announced new versions of the Sourcery CodeBench and Sourcery Analyzer products. Significant new functionality has been added to these releases. In particular, the focus has been given to enhancing the embedded software debugging flow. In relation to this, Sourcery CodeBench now includes trace capability and supports analysis of both software trace (via Sourcery Analyzer technology) and … Read More

Pre-Silicon Software Development with Sourcery CodeBench Virtual Edition I recently got a crash course in hardware/software design workflows. While my software background is strong, my hardware design knowledge is very light. Any thoughts I have on Karnaugh maps or rising edge flip-flops are quite dusty. Even so, I clearly understood the problems solved by the new Sourcery CodeBench Virtual Edition, … Read More
Mentor very recently introduced a product that brings together the so far separate worlds of EDA or SoC design from embedded software with the new Sourcery CodeBench Virtual Edition. There is now a way pre-silicon to make use of native software development, for example running a complete Linux stack. This enables a number of things pre-silicon including: Validation of HW/SW SoC interfaces Integration … Read More
In my 10+ years of embedded Linux work I’ve worked with a lot of Linux trace technologies including the Linux Trace Toolkit (LTTng), System Tap, and even the not so well know and the unlikely to be mainline dtrace for Linux port. These are all very powerful tools that can expose many of the internal details of a Linux system and, depending how you use each tool, create huge volumes of data along … Read More
My colleague Richard Vlamynck [who has been a guest blogger here] and I were discussing tracing and debugging. Like me, he has been doing software for a few years. Hence, when we considered tracing and instrumenting code, he commented “It used to be easy to see what effect trace statements had on your program because, as you put more or less trace cards in your Fortran deck, you could visually … Read More

I often tell people that my job is that of a “professional enthusiast”. I get enthusiastic about products/technologies, then infect other people with that enthusiasm. Well, that is the idea anyway. I enjoy doing this most of all when I get to stand up in front of an audience, as a direct connection with real live human beings is the best way to communicate. However, there are times when … Read More
As I mentioned previously, last week the Embedded Systems Conference took place in San Jose, California. I was there for all 3 days and, in my previous posting, invited any readers of this blog to drop by and say hello. I would like to thank all of you who did just that. It was a pleasure to meet you. I was planning to write some notes on my impressions of the event, but, as it turned out, I have some… Read More
