CoreSight STM-500

CoreSigh STM-500 Chip.

Getting Started

The STM-500 is a trace source that is integrated into a CoreSight system. CoreSight STM-500 is designed for high-bandwidth trace of instrumentation embedded into software. STM Advanced eXtensible Interface (AXI) slave is made up of memory-mapped writes, which carry information about the behavior of the software.

CoreSight STM-500 is a natural successor to the CoreSight Instrumentation Trace Macrocell (ITM) in mid- to high-performance applications.

CoreSight STM-500 Features

CoreSight STM-500 has the following features:

  • A fully synchronous design with one clock and two resets
  • One 64-bit AXI slave interface for extended stimulus port inputs
  • One hardware event observation interface for tracing 64 hardware events
  • One 32-bit debug APB slave interface for configuration and status
  • One 64-bit ATB slave interface for configuration and status
  • One DMA peripheral request interface that is compatible with the AMBA DMA Controller DMA-330
  • Two depth-configurable FIFO buffers for usage-optimized configurability:
    • Data FIFO
    • Channel information FIFO
  • A fully memory-mapped software stimulus supporting 65,536 stimulus ports and 128 masters
  • Leading zero data compression
  • Full support for guaranteed and invariant timing software stimulus writes
  • Support for single-shot and multi-shot triggers with a cross-trigger port, trigger packet insertion, and ATB trace triggers
  • An internal and an external source for STPv2 synchronization
  • Timestamping of trace events
  • Two low-power interfaces
