Percepio and Lauterbach combine to offer faster debugging

Percepio and Lauterbach are collaborating to achieve faster debugging through closer integration between Percepio Tracealyzer and Lauterbach’s series of TRACE32 high-end tracing tools.

Percepio specialises in visual trace diagnostics for embedded systems and the Internet of Things (IoT), while Lauterbach is a supplier of complete, modular and upgradeable microprocessor development tools.

The first result of this ongoing cooperation is an integration that allows Lauterbach users on Arm Cortex-M microprocessors to live stream software trace data into Percepio Tracealyzer, providing visual trace diagnostics for accelerated debugging and verification. The solution leverages the Percepio trace recorder library, supporting e.g. FreeRTOS and SAFERTOS.

“This collaboration gives our customers the great benefit of using the non-intrusive high-speed tracing capabilities of TRACE32 in combination with the in-detail trace analysis of Tracealyzer. It’s a perfect fit to find bugs and defects that are difficult to detect, such as race conditions or sporadic timing issues,” said Norbert Weiss, Managing Director of Lauterbach.

“We see tremendous potential in using high-end tracing solutions such as Lauterbach TRACE32 and µTrace together with the advanced visualization in Percepio Tracealyzer. Our Lauterbach integration allows Tracealyzer users to record runtime data at unprecedented speeds using the Lauterbach µTrace for Arm Cortex-M,” said Johan Kraft, CEO, Percepio. “It also allows existing Lauterbach users to achieve a new level of insight with Tracealyzer. The next step is to leverage hardware trace data in Tracealyzer to show more detailed information.

"We have a working solution in development, and we have been collaborating with Lauterbach on that for some time now.”

Ultimately, the goal is to enable all Lauterbach customers to use visual trace diagnostics with Percepio Tracealyzer based on hardware trace data. The two companies already have joint customers asking for this capability and expect to announce further products during the second half of 2021.
