We are happy to announce improved Tracealyzer support for Microchip MPLAB X IDE, allowing for tracing of additional RTOSes. The updated MPLAB plugin now supports Micrium µC/OS-III and SafeRTOS, in addition to the previous FreeRTOS support. The plugin has also been updated and verified for the latest version of MPLAB X IDE (v4.0.5).
The plugin saves RTOS-level trace data from Percepio’s recorder library to a file, that can be visualized with Tracealyzer in order to better understand the RTOS behavior.
The updated plugin and more information is found at our Microchip page.
Tracealyzer 4 will be available next month, and just to recap – here are some of the new features we have put into the product.
- A first look at Tracealyzer 4
The new version sports a completely revamped user interface and much improved live visualization.
- Trace network activity
I/O events and network activity can be visualized together with the RTOS events.
- Custom Intervals and State graphs
Intervals and State graphs allow you to customize the visualization and analysis for your own system.
- Analysing huge traces
It is now possible to record, view and analyze huge traces, spanning hours, days or even weeks.
In conjunction with the Tracealyzer 4 launch, embedded consultant Jacob Beningo and Percepio are teaming up for a special Intro to Tracealyzer 4 online course. Stay tuned for more details.
Hopefully this should make life a bit easier for developers using Microchip PIC32 MCUs with SafeRTOS or Micrium µC/OS.
