– the Intellectual Property (IP) provider - Digital Core Design (DCD) today has announced the release of the new improved 68xx DoCDTM Debug System designed to DF6805/6808/6811 IP Cores.
The DCD’s DoCDTM Debug System provides real-time and non-intrusive debug capability allowing a pre-silicon validation and post-silicon on chip software debugging. DoCDTM is dedicated for all DCD's DF6811, DF6805 and DF6808 core families. It allows a hardware breakpoints, trace, source debugging. The DoCDTM Debug Software can work as a hardware debugger as well as a software simulator. So some tasks can be validated at software simulation level, and after this step the user can continue real-time debugging by uploading a code into silicon.
System-on-Chip designs plagues keen problem with inaccessibility to important control and bus signals, because they lay often behind the physical pins of the device. It makes traditional measurement instrumentation useless. The best way to get around those limitations, for the verification tasks and software debug, is using on-chip debugging tools. Other advantage of on-chip debugger is an improvement of a design productivity in integrated environment with graphical user interface. The ability to display/modify memories content, processor and peripherals register windows along with trace information and ability to see the related C/ASM source code, are the key factors for the facilitation of a design process and a huge step in the productivity increase.
Developing 68xx DoCDTM Debug System, Digital Core Design improved the Debug Software with Source Level Debugging, which consists of the following function: C code execution, line by line, over, out, skip line. Another facility is witch Symbol Explorer provides hierarchical tree view of all the symbols. Thanks to these improvements debugging process became simple, fast and easy.
The Customer can select VHDL/Verilog source code or FPGA Netlists. IP Core is licensed under Single Design or Unlimited Designs options. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact DCD http://www.dcd.pl/acontact.php
