    Trace features

    douglas.mcclean

      I've not yet had occasion to use them, but the datasheets mention all sorts of details about tracing features of the PSoC 5.

         

      There seem to be two interfaces for tracing, one called SWV that uses 1 pin (in addition to the two already used for SWD) and one called TRACEPORT that uses 5 pins.

         

      What are the pros and cons? What sort of connector should these pins be routed to for connection with a debugging device?

         

      How do you go about watching/reading one of these traces? I don't see any obvious buttons in the debug menu, but it may just be because I don't have appropriate hardware attached.

         

      Why does the PSoC Creator design-wide resources editor (on the System tab) only have a checkbox for "Enable Trace" if there are two trace interfaces? Which interface does this enable? Is it possible to enable the other?
