Zynq-Based, System-Level Debugging with Micrium’s μC/Probe

Being able to see internal software variables in Zynq-based embedded systems in real time is extremely useful during system bring-up and debugging. μC/Probe allows us to read the contents of the processor memory and extract the information we need, without impacting the target’s operation and without the need to add a single line of code to the running target.

“Why Didn’t I Think of That?” – Seeing Inside Embedded Systems

Testing and debugging real-time embedded software can be challenging. In fact, it’s surprising that more tools aren’t available to simplify embedded product design. Any tool that offers instant visibility into the inner workings of your application is worth looking into.

The Many Uses of RTOS Message Queues

Message queues can be used in a number of different ways. You can write fairly complex applications in which you might use message queues alone. Using only message queues can reduce the size of your code (i.e., memory footprint) because many of the other services (semaphores, time delays, and event flags) can be simulated.

Dynamische Systeme Verifizieren (German)

Um ein Embedded-System zu entwickeln und zu debuggen, reichen in der Regel die üblichen Werkzeuge wie Compiler, Linker und Debugger. Bei der Verifikation von dynamischen Systemen wie etwa einer Motor- oder Prozesssteuerung sind allerdings besondere Tools gefragt: Eine spezielle Debugging-Hardware … Continue reading
