Debugging for Success and Accelerated Platform Bring-Up

Speeding up a system bring-up and solving bring-up problems in new designs is vital for system and embedded engineers and software developers. Intel® System Debugger, a key part of the Intel® System Studio, provides in-depth debugging and tracing of system software and IoT applications based on Intel® architecture, and is ideal for initial platform bring-up and debugging of firmware, BIOS, operating systems, and device drivers. It allows developers to stop the entire system and inspect code that otherwise could not be debugged with an application debugger.

This short webinar breaks down:

  • The structure, debugging tools, and the supported probes of Intel System Studio
  • System Debug, System Trace, and WinDbg* extension tools
  • Two case studies where Intel System Debugger defeated two different hang issues
