High-performance Embedded Workshop Real-Time OS Aware Debugging

The real-time OS aware debugging presented herein supports task-level debugging of real-time OS applications in the Integrated Development Environment High-performance Embedded Workshop. This function comes standard with High-performance Embedded Workshop. There is no need to rebuild the real-time OS, nor will overhead be incurred. (Debug patches, etc. are not necessary.)

Release Information

Functions

  • Object status reference (OS object window)
  • Allows you to inspect the execution status of objects such as tasks and semaphores
  • RAM monitor supported
  • Capable of a mixed display of multiple objects such as task priority and event flag value


When using Renesas real-time OSs, you can make use of extended debugger options that permit more detailed object status references (real-time OS debugger [Debugging Extension] task window, etc. and MR window of the PC7501 emulator, etc.). These windows include the items normally displayed in the OS object window. (The relationship between these windows and the OS object window is similar to the relationship between a watch window and local window.)

 

 

  • Graphical display of task execution history (task trace window)
    • Execution history display making use of trace data

 

  • Graphical display of task execution time (task analyze window)
    • Execution time and CPU occupancy rate display making use of trace data

 

  • Functions for the E100 emulator
    • Real-time profile (shows the CPU occupancy rate over a long time without interruption)
    • Task specification for each condition (break, performance, trace and trace filter)
    • Currently executed task display in the status bar
    • Task execution history display in text form (execution history display making use of trace data)
    • Task stack coverage (graphical display of the task stack used)
    • Memory protection (illegal accesses to the task stack and OS area detected)
    • Step execution aiming at a specific task
    • Dispatch detection and break
