Lauterbach announces SAFERTOS® awareness from TRACE32®
Lauterbach, the leading manufacturer of microprocessor development tools, has announced that they have extended the kernel awareness for SAFERTOS from WITTENSTEIN high integrity systems on all Arm® processors. The new SAFERTOS awareness provides easy access to task lists and other kernel information, generates performance analysis data and enables customers to carry out effective debugging with the TRACE32 systems on targets running SAFERTOS. SAFERTOS is a pre-emptive, safety critical Real Time Operating System (RTOS) available precertified to IEC 61508 SIL3 and ISO 26262 ASIL D. SAFERTOS is used internationally across a range of safety critical applications and is renowned for its high quality, delivering unprecedented levels of determinism and robustness to embedded systems whilst using minimal resources.
The new software package from Lauterbach contains a ready-to
run configuration for the SAFERTOS Real Time Kernel. The
SAFERTOS awareness for TRACE32 allows the developer to display
all SAFERTOS system resources including task information,
dynamic thread performance measurement, and SAFERTOS specific
display of trace listing, as well as statistic evaluation and
graphic display of task and function run times, PRACTICE
functions for OS Data, and SAFERTOS related Pull-Down Menu.
All features of the TRACE32 awareness for SAFERTOS do not
require any additional target configuration or any hooks or
patches within the OS itself. The philosophy of TRACE32 is for
the application to behave exactly the same in the debug
environment as on the final product; only this way can 100%
certainty of testing be achieved.

ARM UlinkPro for Detecting sporadic errors using ETM trace
Tools Team, is pleased to share this application note that
explains how ULINKpro is used to identify sporadic errors
that where caused by misconfigured hardware. It shows how the
advanced debug features of the Arm Cortex-M architecture and
the trace adapter helped to find the root cause of the
problem that was not related to the application software (in
this case a network stack) but caused by a wrong timing
configuration of a Flash accelerator.
While developing a network application on an NXP LPC43xx (Arm
Cortex-M4 based), the system crashes sporadically. The
application runs at 180 MHz from internal flash and works as
expected for a while, but then ends up in a HardFault.
Typically, the error occurs after a few minutes, but the time
varies and sometimes it does not occur for quite a while.
This application note shows how we found a dependency on
network activity and router behavior, which triggered a
certain part of the code to execute.

Tesla owners are required to have the PCAN-USB adapter and
Tesla’s Event Data Recorder (EDR) Retrieval Program to generate
a PDF report outlining the findings from their electric cars’
Tesla is now allowing owners of its vehicles to access their
cars’ Event Data Recorder (EDR), commonly known as the ‘black
box’ of autos, through a set of licensed tools and software.
As noted by Tesla on its official help page for its EDR user
guide, all of the company’s vehicles save for the
original Roadster are equipped with an Event Data Recorder. The
recording devices are only activated once the vehicle senses a
non-trivial physical occurrence in the vehicle. Thus, during
normal driving conditions, the EDR is deactivated.
In the event that data logs from the EDR need to be accessed,
however, Tesla’s new set of proprietary tools and software can
retrieve data from the vehicle’s black box. The following
hardware is required to gain access to the data to the Model S,
X, and 3’s EDR.
