Processor Trace Support First For RISC-V

UltraSoC has developed what it calls the market’s first processor trace support for products based on the open source RISC-V architecture. The company has developed a specification for processor trace that will be offered for adoption by the RISC-V Foundation as part of the open source specification. In addition, UltraSoC today becomes the first ecosystem participant to offer an implementation of this functionality. Five core vendors have already announced their support for the new trace specification, which is a key function for software developers using any processor; its delivery is an important step forward in the development of the RISC-V ecosystem. UltraSoC’s implementation of RISC-V processor trace functionality will be available in Q42017.
