Accessing Embedded Trace Buffer on PI?

Mon Feb 10, 2020 6:14 pm

Hello all,
I wanted to know if there is anyway I can access the embedded trace buffer (ETB) on the raspberry Pi 3 Model B. Is there built in software available to do this? I was looking at some tools to access the ETB. I know for TI boards, they have an XDS560 Trace System. Is there something similar to this for the pi?

Thanks!

You can enable ARM JTAG pins on the header for hardware debugging, but I don't think Pi 3 (BCM2710) has an ETM block (I've not seen it mentioned, and never tried it). Pi 4 (BCM2711) does claim to have an ARM debug core, but I don't know if anyone has tried to use it.
