    • Better trace for better software with Arm CoreSight

      This white paper explores the limitations of existing software debug and trace technologies, and explains how the Arm CoreSight System Trace Macrocell (STM) and Trace Memory Controller (TMC) enable system level visibility to more developers. This reduces latency and increases throughput, at the same time as applying existing open source trace infrastructures.

    • Low pin-count debug interfaces for multi-device systems

      This white paper examines some alternatives to JTAG as a debug interface, and concludes that a Serial Wire Debug interface can be delivered with lower pin-count and higher performance, and at the same time, maintain support for multiprocessor systems and interoperability with test.
