6.19.1 Advanced Event Triggering (AET)
The C6654 and C6652 devices support advanced event triggering (AET). This capability can be used to debug complex problems as well as understand performance characteristics of user applications. AET provides the following capabilities:
- Hardware Program Breakpoints: specify addresses or address ranges that can generate events such as halting the processor or triggering the trace capture.
- Data Watchpoints: specify data variable addresses, address ranges, or data values that can generate events such as halting the processor or triggering the trace capture.
- Counters: count the occurrence of an event or cycles for performance monitoring.
- State Sequencing: allows combinations of hardware program breakpoints and data watchpoints to precisely generate events for complex sequences.
For more information on AET, see the following documents in Section 10.3:
