Wind River ICE 2, Powered by Wind River Workbench On-Chip Debugging

Multi-core Debugging

  • Simultaneously debug up to 16 CPU cores and 32 physical threads visualized in a single contextual interface.
  • Synchronized cross-core debug operations allow you to indentify difficult issues introduced with the complexity of a multi-core system.

System-Level Debugging

Allows the user to resolve complex interactions among kernel, kernel modules, and applications. SMP systems can be represented by treating groups of cores as a single system including TOS awareness, kernel, kernel module, and application debug.

Virtualized System Bring-Up

Visibility into the hypervisor's object and virtual boards enables bring-up of a virtualized system with multiple guest OSes.

Take Control of Your System

  • Start, stop, and reset your target.
  • Single step through code with a correlated source view.
  • Set expression-based hardware and software conditional breakpoints.
  • View and modify CPU core and peripheral registers with bit-level detail.
  • View and modify RAM, cache, and non-volatile memory; supports memory management unit (MMU).
  • Board initialization and target register files are provided for common device reference platforms.
  • Validate address, data bus, and memory with advanced hardware diagnostics.
  • Flash programming allows for quick system setup such as loading boot loader images into flash.
  • Automate target initialization and download sequences with command shell command-line interface (CLI).

High-Performance Hardware Debugger

  • Ethernet interface for remote debugging
  • Front-panel LCD to ease configuration and monitoring
  • Target console port
  • Support of up to 100MHz JTAG clock rates
  • User-selectable signal drive strength
  • Target adapter connector system

Highly Extensible Solution

  • Support for a wide range of processors based on ARM, Intel, MIPS, and PowerPC architectures
  • Eclipse-based development environment for integration with third-party and home-grown development tools
  • Centralized project-oriented environment to simplify workflow and ease handoff among different phases of development
  • External trace buffer unit to identify and resolve difficult program-flow issues
  • Multi-JTAG connect unit for debugging redundant systems

Above and Beyond Board Bring-Up

  • Target OS awareness provides kernel visibility for stabilization of the OS, kernel modules, and applications.
  • It is integrated and validated to work with the latest versions of Wind River VxWorks, Wind River Linux, and Wind River Hypervisor.
  • A multi-JTAG connect unit simultaneously debugs up to four scan chains.
  • Auto detection of Linux kernel allows for simplified configuration.
