ULINKpro Debug Adapter

ULINKpro debug and trace unit programs, debugs and analyzes applications running on Arm Cortex-based devices using its full trace capability. The high-speed data and instruction trace is streamed directly to the PC providing detailed analysis of program behaviour, which is particularly helpful when certifying for functional safety. Streaming instruction trace requires the target device to have ETM (Embedded Trace Macrocell).

Used in conjunction with the performance analysis within Arm Keil MDK, it identifies program bottlenecks, optimizes applications and isolates problems.

Which ULINK?

ULINK2 is an entry-level debugger for Cortex-M devices. Control the processor, set breakpoints, and read/write memory contents, all while the processor is running at full speed.

ULINKplus combines isolated debug connection, power measurement, and I/O for test automation. Function, timing, and power consumption visibility enables developers to optimize applications further.

This sophisticated unit enables developers to program, debug and analyze applications using high-speed streaming trace, which is required for code coverage and performance analysis.
