ASSET® InterTech and Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (NASDAQ: AMCC), also known as AppliedMicro®, have collaborated on enabling ASSET’s software debug tools for AppliedMicro’s X-Gene™ Server on a ChipTM silicon solution, which is being rapidly deployed in enterprise systems in the cloud. ASSET (www.asset-intertech.com), through its ScanWorks® platform for embedded instruments, is the leading supplier of tools for embedded instrumentation.
X-Gene incorporates custom 64-bit ARMv8 processor cores to support a wide range of enterprise cloud applications such as web servers, data analytics, media streaming and others. The scalable multicore X-Gene SoC is a fully integrated server-on-a-chip solution with enterprise-class ARM cores, memory and input/output (I/O), including 10Gbps Ethernet, on the same chip, delivering industry-standard performance with a much lower cost of ownership.
“Without the right tools and significant visibility into concurrent code execution, debugging firmware for complex multicore SoCs is more than challenging,” said Larry Osborn, ASSET product manager for software debug and trace tools. “Because of the dependencies among multiple and concurrent firmware threads, isolating the root causes of bugs requires advanced debug and trace tools that will take into account all of the processing that’s going on in the system.”
The ASSET SourcePoint™ hardware-assisted debugger, which came to ASSET with its recent acquisition of Arium™, gives developers visibility into code execution from the point where the system is reset through the execution of the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI). SourcePoint also runs under the Linux operating system and can take advantage of its many capabilities.
To serve a wide range of development needs, two ASSET run-control probes support the SourcePoint ARM debugger. The LC-500S and LX-1000 access ARM code executing on X-Gene processors via the chip’s JTAG port and apply many of the device’s internal resources to debug code. The LX-1000 Trace Port Analyzer includes the added capability over the LC-500S of storing collected trace data in two gigabytes of external storage.
“Developers of cloud applications based on the X-Gene are intent on bringing their systems to market as quickly as possible. Enterprise systems are rapidly moving to the cloud,” said Ed Gasiorowski, director of platform engineering at AppliedMicro. “With ASSET’s tools joining the ecosystem, our users will have powerful debug and trace tools that complement the processing capabilities of X-Gene.”
Pricing and Availability
The SourcePoint debugger for designs based on X-Gene processors is available now from ASSET InterTech and its distributors. Pricing for SourcePoint with an LC-500S run-control probe starts at $2,950.

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

Regulatory requirements exist to promote the controlled sharing of information, while protecting the privacy and/or security of the information. Regulations for each type of information have their own set of rules, policies, and guidelines. Cloud Service Providers (CSP) are faced with increasing demand for services at decreasing prices. Demonstrating and maintaining compliance with regulations is a nontrivial task and doing so against numerous sets of regulatory requirements can be daunting task...

Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, sha...
