The Tessent Embedded Analytics solution can be used to produce health and operational metrics throughout the lifecycle of an SoC. Embedded software based on the Tessent Embedded SDK can drive the Tessent Embedded Analytics smart monitors to create a self-contained on-chip monitoring system.
Leveraging embedded non-intrusive instrumentation such as bus monitors, NoC monitors, and CPU debug modules, data can be continuously collected and analyzed on chip, before results and key data points are exported and analyzed centrally. The Tessent Embedded Analytics instruments enable full transaction-level visibility of traffic on buses with a wide range of measurements, analytics and statistics gathering. All of these are highly configurable and include “logic analyzer” style controls and dependencies, local buffering and cross-triggering.
All Tessent Embedded Analytics monitors (IPs), can be accessed via a dedicated, secure communication infrastructure. Embedded software can drive the system via an AXI interface to create a self-contained on-chip monitoring system. Non-intrusive debug and monitoring using an off-chip host or debugger is facilitated through USB 2, USB 3, JTAG, or Aurora interfaces.
