Green Hills trace probe is faster, with more capacity


Santa Clara, Ca . – Green Hills Software has just announced the availability of its SuperTrace Probe v3, claiming it is the fastest JTAG debug trace probe around with the largest storage capacity ever built.

Starting with 4 gigabytes of trace, expandable to higher capacities, and a sustained JTAG download speed of over 10 megabytes per second, SuperTrace Probe v3 is tightly integrated with the Green Hills MULTI TimeMachine debugging suite.

David Kleidermacher, chief technology officer, Green Hills Software said that in addition to the 10MB/sec download speed, the new version of SuperTrace incorporates both Gigabit Ethernet and USB 2.0 Hi-Speed interfaces, and is capable of trace storage write speeds of 4 GB per second.

It ships with 4 GB of trace storage in its standard configuration. Significantly higher capacities are available. With 4 GB, SuperTrace Probe v3, said Kleidermacher, can record long histories, making it easier than ever to catch the bugs. It is able to observe significant events, such as a boot from reset of an RTOS and task startup. Bugs which were impractical to trace are now trivially found, he said.

SuperTrace Probe v3 is certified to FCC class A and EN 61326-1:2006, and is RoHS-compliant. Its custom-machined anodized, non-conductive aluminum enclosure was designed to be quiet and unobtrusive. And its intelligent cabling system automatically validates itself every time it’s plugged in to give developers maximum reliability and confidence.
