 Systems-on-Chip Debug Standards

an ECSI Workshop

April 16, 2007
Nice France

(in conjunction with DATE 2007 Conference)

See the official call


Motivation & Objectives
The number of working groups addressing the debug standards largely increased recently (2 in 2002, 4 in 2004, 8 in 2006, 10-11 in 2007?). Potentially, there is some overlap in these standardization efforts.

We need to ensure that we address the right problems with adequate solutions in terms of practical and adopted standards. To do so first we need to have a clear picture what are the key advanced features the standardization should address: SW interface and APIs?, performance issues?, next generation JTAG?.There is a need to understand various standardization efforts and activities in the area of SoCs integration debug: their content, scope, status and roadmaps.

The workshop will present the landscape of the standardization activities, with their objectives, motivation and technical advancement. It will also give the possibility to the SoC developers to express their needs in terms of methods, required standards and tool support.The outcome will be to have a better understanding of the industry needs, emerging solutions and missing parts in the SoC debug area.
