SEGGER has announced SystemView PRO, which allows recording and live analysis of interrupts, task switches, API calls and other events without limiting recording time or number of events. To facilitate analysis of large amounts of data, custom event filters have been added to the feature set of this latest version of the powerful system analysis tool.
While 1 million events with the original free-of-charge SystemView enabled several minutes of data recording to be carried out, long-term tests require recordings that can last for hours or even days.
This is where SystemView PRO comes in, as there is effectively no limit on the data that can be acquired (with only the customer’s available storage capacity effecting this). The recorded data can be saved and archived, allowing documentation and verification of the system behavior as well as analysis at a later time.
With the huge amount of data, filters are an incredibly useful tool to track the occurrence of specific events. Thanks to its broad array of custom filters, SystemView PRO enables precise selection of the events that need to be tracked - giving the user greatly improved visibility. This more advanced analysis tool complements the original version of SystemView, which continues to be available to download for free.
“SystemView is a unique tool to understand what exactly happens in an embedded system, tracing interrupts, task switches, API calls and other user events with cycle accuracy, typically better than 10ns. No additional hardware is required. I believe that not using SystemView to verify a product’s behavior is almost negligent, especially given that the standard version with 1 million event limit is free to use,” says Johannes Lask, Product Manager of SystemView and SystemView PRO.
