Real-time debugging of digital integrated circuits
The detection of the reason for an incorrect behaviour of an integrated circuit in its real-time environment is a very time consuming task. Using logic analysers in combination with an extensive logic simulation is the today's only way to isolate possible errors. In this paper, we introduce a hardware debugger to perform the debugging process in a more efficient way. Goal of the hardware debugger is detecting a failure of an integrated circuit in real-time processing and the supply of data for the determination of the cause of the failure.
