Today we are proud to announce the release of Analyzer2Go 2.0 – our product that turns development boards into powerful logic analyzers. This release adds support for the Cypress SuperSpeed Explorer Kit that is capable of streaming data to the computer over the ultra-fast USB 3.0 interface at >350MB/sec, resulting in reliable 200MHz sampling rate when using 8 channels or 100 MHz when using 16 channels. The SuperSpeed Explorer Kit is the perfect board to be used as a logic analyzer due to its highly programmable peripheral interface module and in this post I will explain to you how it works and how you can use it to add extremely fast connectivity to your designs.

Today we are excited to announce the release of VisualGDB 5.4 Preview 3 that adds support for tracing ARM devices with Segger J-Trace. Tracing is a powerful debugging technique that lets you track each and every instruction executed by the target CPU without ever stopping it, or instrumenting any code.
In this post I will show you how to use tracing to step back in time, reconstructing the code path leading to an otherwise untraceable crash and how to see the code coverage for your embedded projects in real time and without any instrumentation overhead.
