Find bugs faster: Percepio Tracealyzer user story
Jan Ropek of VNT electronics, a Czech maker of electronic dog training equipment, tells his story of how a development project was plagued by memory leaks. It could take days to locate and fix a single leak, but when they deployed Percepio Tracealyzer the same bug hunt was completed in a matter of hours.
Cloud service for remote monitoring of IoT devices
Percepio has announced DevAlert, a cloud service for IoT product organisations that provides immediate awareness of firmware problems in deployed IoT devices and visual diagnostic information to speed resolution.
Event-recording tools for debugging at embedded world 2020
Traditional debugging techniques for embedded software are no longer sufficient, due to ever increasing complexity of embedded applications. To help embedded and IoT developers with this challenge, Percepio CEO Johan Kraft and Reinhard Keil, Senior Director of Embedded Tools at Arm, will discuss this paradigm shift in a joint presentation at Embedded World 2020 in Nuremberg.
Using a Device Firmware Monitor (DFM) to deal with software bugs
Johan Kraft, CEO and Founder of Percepio, introduces a new solution that leverages cloud connectivity to root out software bugs after device deployment. Computer scientist Edsger Dijkstra once said, “Program testing can be used to show the presence of bugs, but never to show their absence”. Despite developers testing their software as much as possible, they just can’t prove that bugs don’t exist in the system.

ARM’S RTOS gets visualisation from Percepio
Percepio AB has been working closely with ARM to develop Tracealyzer for ARM Keil RTX5, the new RTOS for Keil MDK and ARM mbed OS. Tracealyzer for RTX5 is based on Percepio’s latest Tracealyzer v3.1 platform and builds on ARM’s new Event Recorder technology in Keil MDK. This allows for continuous streaming of event data to the host PC over JTAG or SWD, using common debug probes such as the Keil ULINK series. Percepio is...
Trace recorder library supports streaming over USB
Percepio has announced Tracealyzer 3.1, the improved tool which adds support for trace streaming over USB, provides detection of dynamic memory leaks and includes many other updates to get up and running even quicker. The trace recorder library is now easier to configure for streaming over custom interfaces, and includes support for USB streaming on STM32 (easily adapted for other MCUs).
Three software engineers and a bug
By Mike Skrtic, Sales and Marketing Director, Percepio. Recently, I was fortunate enough to have dinner with three embedded software engineers. It brought to mind a story that I thought would be both appropriate and amusing, so I shared it with them and, to my surprise, it was met with puzzled looks.
Embedded software tracing tool upgrade available
Percepio has announced the launch of Tracealyzer for Micrium’s µC/OS-III th streaming trace. The new Tracealyzer for µC/OS-III is built on Percepio’s latest Tracealyzer 3.0 platform and contains its streaming trace recorder, which allows for capturing arbitrarily long trace recordings as well as the traditional snapshot (RAM buffer) recorder.
