American Arium Offers World’s First 640 MHz, Gigabyte ETM Trace Port Analyzer


GT-1000/D Due for Release End of March 2005

TUSTIN, CA, 02/25/2005 -- American Arium, an industry leader in hardware-assisted debug, today announced its latest ETM trace port analyzers designed to support ARM®-architecture processors. The Arium GT-1000D offers a trace depth of 1 GByte and a half-clock capture rate up to 640 MHz, while the GT-1000 has a trace depth of 256 MByte at the same rate. The port analyzers feature easily adjustable data termination, clock termination, and clock timing for unmatched signal integrity and data recovery.

“Our goal is always to provide our customers with the best products in the debug industry, and with the GT-1000D we have done that. No other company in the industry can offer reliable gigabyte trace at 640 MHz half-rate clock mode,” said Larry Traylor, Arium’s CEO. “Developers get exceptional trace capture depth and speed. It’s an extremely powerful tool. We developed the GT-1000 for those who don’t need as much trace depth,” he added. “We aim to please.”

Key features of both emulators include:

-- Full instruction set support for ARM7™, ARM9™, ARM11™, Intel XScale, and TI OMAP processor cores
-- Software-adjustable data termination: 44 - 100 Ohms Thevenin equivalent termination for exceptional data signal integrity
-- Software-adjustable clock termination: None or 60, 90, 135, or 180 Ohms to 0-100 percent of target VCC for outstanding clock signal integrity
-- Software-adjustable clock timing: 5 settings from 0 to 1.33 ns - 44-bit timestamp with 10 ns resolution
-- Execution trace functionality on all Intel XScale® processors
-- Linux OS aware debug, including full source-level kernel and application debug in a GUI environment

The port analyzers ship with a 38-pin ETM Mictor connector for trace and a 20-pin JTAG connection for straight run control (1 KHz - 40MHz). When coupled with Arium’s flagship SourcePoint™ debugger, the GT-1000/D debug solutions provide fast downloads, a robust command language, and intuitive manipulation and elegant display of code. SourcePoint™ IDE, powered by Visual SlickEdit®, is currently available for host computers running Microsoft® Windows®.
The GT-1000D emulator, coupled with the PBD-GTE personality probe, and SourcePoint™ debugger with SourcePoint IDE is priced at $16,000. The GT-1000, PBD-GTE, and SourcePoint with SourcePoint IDE is priced at $13,000. A Linux-hosted version of SourcePoint is also available.

The GT-1000D will be shown at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco March 1-3, 2005.
