A framework for moving debug to the Internet of Things (IoT)
The need for low-level, non-intrusive debug visibility has only increased as SoCs have become more complex. Unfortunately, access to the interfaces that support these functions (JTAG, Trace pins, etc.) has become more limited, particularly in fielded systems. Debug must move past this reliance on dedicated interfaces into a paradigm where the debug functions can co-exist with other system functions on shared interfaces and networks.
The MIPI Gigabit Debug Framework defines “networkable” protocols that provide the same debug access and trace capabilities provided by the dedicated HW interfaces and tooling. Network-specific specifications then provide the details of how to map these protocols to various functional networks like USB, TCP/IP, etc.
On Wednesday, Nov. 19 at 8:30 am PDT, Gary Cooper, Chair of the MIPI Debug Working Group (see full bio below), will outline the MIPI Gigabit Debug Framework as it exists today and provide a glimpse into where it is going in the future. Anyone interested in debug of complex SoCs or network-based debug technologies, including SoC architects, system software developers, debug tools vendors, and application software developers, would benefit from attending.
