Tracing on ST STM32F407 (SEGGER Cortex-M Trace Reference Board)
This article describes how to get started with trace on the ST STM32F407 MCU. This article assumes that there is already a basic knowledge about trace in general (what is trace, what different implementations of trace are there, etc.). If this is not the case, we recommend to read Trace chapter in the J-Link User Manual (UM08001). The ST STM32F407 MCU implements tracing via pins, so a J-Trace can be used for tracing.
In order to use trace on the ST STM32F407MCU devices, the following minimum requirements have to be met:
- J-Link software version V6.16i or later
- Ozone V2.44d or later (if streaming trace and / or the sample project from below shall be used)
- J-Trace PRO for Cortex-M HW version V1.0 or later
The following sample project is designed to be used with J-Trace PRO and Ozone to demonstrate streaming trace. The project has been tested with the minimum requirements mentioned above and a SEGGER Cortex-M Trace Reference Board which is part of each J-Trace PRO purchase. The sample project comes with a pre-configured project file for Ozone that runs out-of-the box. In order to rebuild the sample project, SEGGER Embedded Studio can be used.
