• Target cJTAG/JTAG clock rates up to 100MHz
• Target voltage range: 0.9V to 3.6V
• Up to 4 MB/s high speed download
• Auto-conditioning for fast cJTAG/JTAG clock frequencies
• Multi-core debugging support
• Hot-plug support for post-mortem debugging
• Supports Flash Programming and FPGA Programming
• Powered by USB interface – no external power-supply required
• Display/read/write of target system memory and peripheral registers
• Run/stop control of target application including go, halt, step over, step into and step out

Ashling’s ULTRA-XD is a high-performance real-time trace probe for embedded development and debug on Synopsys’ DesignWare® ARC® EM and HS processors. Developed in cooperation with Synopsys, the Ultra-XD probe integrates with the MetaWare or GNU GDB Debuggers under Windows or Linux based hosts

NXP POWER Architecture

VITRA-PPC Trace probe is a powerful networked Emulation and Trace system for embedded development with NXP ‘s Power Architecture® devices using the NEXUS 5001 on-chip debug interface.

• Vitra debugging is completely non-intrusive and requires no target system resources. Together with Ashling’s PathFinder source-level debugger, Vitra provides powerful run/stop control of embedded software, with hardware and software breakpoints.
• Vitra provides fast code download to the target system, and allows control and interrogation of all core-processor and system resources. Vitra incorporates high speed Ethernet, USB and serial connections to the host PC.
• Vitra provides full Instruction Trace and Data Trace using the NEXUS 5001 standard on-chip debug interface.
