Design Support


Trace Analyzer is provided by Code Composer Studio (CCS) to enable non-intrusive debug and analysis of system activity. The TI target device sends data about the target’s actions over a dedicated port. This allows you to examine the history of the processor’s actions without affecting the real-time behavior of the target application.

This document applies to the features supported in Trace Analyzer with CCS 6.0. Many of the features described in this document are also provided as part of CCS v5.4 and v5.5.

No application code changes are required to support basic hardware trace functionality. Additional trace configuration is possible through source code changes to instrument the target.
