AURIX™ MCU: MCDS Trace Viewer – KBA235790
The Multi-Core Debug Solution (MCDS) Trace Viewer (MTV) tool that comes as part of the Device Access Server (DAS) package is used to analyze and debug real-time systems. This tool is used together with emulation devices, where the full-blown MCDS option is available, or with production devices where MCDSLight and MINIMCDS are available.
This tool is used for tracing:
- Instructions: Messages on program execution, including the execution time
- Compact functions: Tracing only calls and returns of functions
- Flow: Tracks the instructions being executed inside the traced functions
Additionally, it provides options to configure triggers to start or stop the trace together with applying range filters to ensure that only information of the user’s interest is traced.
For more information on MTV, see AP32401.
Note: This KBA applies to the following series of AURIX™ MCUs:
- AURIX™ TC2xx series
- AURIX™ TC3xx series
