PLS Programmierbare Logik & Systeme GmbH, based in Lauta (Germany), is a manufacturer of debuggers, emulators and trace solutions for embedded systems. Thanks to PLS’s innovative test and development tools, the company has developed into a technology leader in this area since its foundation in 1990.
The modular and flexible software architecture of PLS’s key product, the Universal Debug Engine® (UDE®), offers development engineers an optimal environment for error diagnostics and test as well as system-level analysis. This includes not only traditional run-mode debugging with breakpoints and single-stepping but also vast opportunities for test automation, in-system FLASH programming and RTOS support. By intelligent use of modern on-chip debug and trace technologies, the UDE also provides powerful functions like profiling and code coverage for system optimization and test.
The devices UAD2/UAD3+ of the Universal Access Device (UAD) product family complete UDE’s full featured debug solution with a robust and efficient target access with transfer rates of up to 3.5 Mbytes/s. In addition, the flexible adapter concept of the UAD2/UAD3+ family supports a wide range of different target interfaces.
The leading-edge UDE/UAD debugging infrastructure opens up a completely new dimension for fast and flexible access to multi-core systems. In addition to important architectures, such as AURIX, TriCore, PowerArchitecture, Cortex-R/A/M, ARM7/9/11, Renesas RH850 and SH-2A, XC2000/XE166 and C166/ST10, simulation platforms from different vendors are also supported.
