As discussed in Part 1
in this series, in the same way the OCP data socket is a superset for the different bus interfaces and data structures, an OCP debug socket will provide a superset of the debug solutions based on standardized libraries of debug IP blocks that interact with the debug sockets signals. This allows the following:
Signal level observation (bus and system trace) and control (triggering)
Consistent (multiple) processor software debugger and bus traffic observation interfaces
Special debug features for security islands, voltage islands, gated clock islands etc.
New classes of debug errors (which are different from system errors.
