Cortus APS3 CPU family now has full support from Lauterbach TRACE32 Power Tools

Lauterbach and Cortus are pleased to announce that the Lauterbach TRACE32® Power Tools now fully support the Cortus APS3 family of processors.

February 9 2010 - Lauterbach and Cortus are pleased to announce that the Lauterbach TRACE32® Power Tools now fully support the Cortus APS3 family of processors.

The power of Lauterbach’s TRACE32 Power Tools is now available for the Cortus APS3 family of ultra low power embedded CPUs. Non-intrusive debugging over JTAG is supported giving engineers full visibility of program execution and profiling analysis enhancing product development times. It offers full support for the Cortus On-Chip debugging hardware and all processor features.

Lauterbach’s TRACE32 PowerDebug for the Cortus APS3 family of processors provides an ultra-high-speed interface accelerating the entire debug process including code download, flash programming and source code debugging. The tools can be connected to either Windows or Linux hosts via USB 2.0 or Ethernet 10/100/1000. The TRACE32 PowerView software includes a very efficient and user friendly HLL debugger for C and C++ as well as awareness for real-time operating systems.

The Cortus APS3 processor family are designed specifically for embedded systems. They feature a tiny silicon footprint (the same size as an 8051), very low power consumption, high code density and high performance. The ecosystem around the APS3 is rich and well developed, it includes a full development environment (for C and C++), peripherals typical of embedded systems, bus bridges to ensure easy interfacing to other IP and system support and functions such as cache and memory management units. For the most demanding designs the APS3 can be used in a multi-core configuration. The APS3 processor core is currently in production in a range of products from security applications to ultra low power RF designs.
