impulse EMBEDDED

impulse Workbench Extension
An embedded system is a computer system with a dedicated function within a larger mechanical or electrical system, often with real-time computing constraints.

Embedded system complexity is constantly growing and high-level languages like java take more and more space in this area. impulse can help developers to improve the visibility of what is going on inside.

This extension contains a serial line (RS232) adapter, CDT memory adapter, Serial Wire Viewer (SWV) reader and the SystemView reader.

Attach and Read Trace Data from Embedded Target Board

The division into reader and port makes it possible to use any transmission path.

Read, Analyse and Visualize Memory Portions While Debugging

With the help of scripts, information can be extracted from the memory areas and visualized, e.g., with charts.

Analyse Real-Time Behaviour of Your RT-OS

Real-time information from your RT-OS can be displayed and analysed in a variety of ways. Filters and search operations allow the detection of errors.

Serial Line Adapter

The Serial Port Adapter configures and opens a serial port and reads its raw data. The raw data are then processed by a configurable reader.

CDT Memory Adapter

The CDT memory adapter allows data to be read from memory areas. The start address/size can be configured explicitly or in the form of debug expressions (e.g., trace->buffer). The raw data are then processed by a configurable reader.

SWV Reader

The Serial Wire Viewer from ARM (Cortex-M microcontroller) provides non-intrusive real-time tracing (ITM). This mechanism is usually used for printfs only. The impulse SWV reader enhances SWV use cases as it allows users to log and trace different kinds of data (real, integer, strings or logic), which can then be stored, visualized and analysed with impulse.

SystemView Reader

SEGGER's SystemView environment is a real-time recording and visualization tool that visualizes the runtime behaviour of embedded applications. With the SystemView reader, you can use impulse to read and analyse SystemView recording data from files or directly from running targets.

  • Serial Line Adapter

    Read data from a serial line (RS232,..)

    The Serial Line Adapter allows to read streams from serial line. The adapter can be combined with other adapters using a multi adapter port.

    Beside the serial parameters (input, baud, stopbits,..), user need to configure serializer and configuration to be used.

    Platforms:
    32/64bit 32/64bit 32/64bit
    Requirements:
    • None
    Known limitations:
    • None
    Status:
    • Stable
    Operations:
    • Connect
    • Read
    • Sync
  • CDT Memory Adapter

    Read data from memory regions (CDT debugging)

    The CDT Memory Adapter allows to read data from memory regions. The start address/size can be configured explicitly or in form of debug expressions (e.g. trace->buffer). The adapter can be combined with other adapters using a multi adapter port.

    Platforms:
    32/64bit 32/64bit 32/64bit
    Requirements:
    • Eclipse CDT tooling (Will be automatically installed).
    Known limitations:
    • None

  • SWV Reader

    Handle Serial Viewer Viewer data

    The Serial Wire Viewer from ARM (Cortex-M microcontroller) provides non-intrusive real-time tracing. Usually this mechanism ist used for printfs only. The impulse SWV reader enhances SWV use-cases as it allows to log and trace different kind of data (real, integer, strings, logic) to be stored, visualized and analysed with impulse.

Using the SystemView (Segger) reader

SEGGER's SystemView environment is a real-time recording and visualization tool that visualizes the runtime behavior of embedded applications. With the new SystemView serializer, you can use impulse to read and analyze SystemView recording data from files or directly from running targets.

Using the Serial Port Adapter

The Serial Port Adapter configures and opens a serial port and reads its raw data. The raw input data will be processed by a configurable reader.

Using the SWV Reader

The Serial Wire Viewer from ARM (Cortex-M microcontroller) provides non-intrusive real-time tracing (ITM). Usually this mechanism is used for printfs only. The impulse SWV Reader enhances SWV use-cases as it allows to log and trace different kind of data (real, integer, strings, logic) to be stored, visualized and analyzed with impulse.

Using the CDT Memory Adapter

The CDT Memory Adapter reads a memory block from a debugged process. The start address/size can be configured explicitly or in form of debug expressions (e.g. trace->buffer). The raw input data will be processed by a configurable reader.

Embedded Systems

The embedded system’s complexity is growing constantly and high-level languages such as Java take up more and more space in this area. impulse can help developers to improve the visibility of what is going on inside.
