New lower-cost versions of SourcePoint for hobbyists and researchers

At long last, low-level DCI/JTAG-based debug of x86 platforms is now affordable by individual hobbyists, researchers and academic institutions. 

Debugging Type 1 Hypervisors on the UP Xtreme i11 using JTAG/DCI

An example of debugging a Type 1 hypervisor using JTAG and DCI on a commercially available board.

Vivado Programming Production Challenges – Here’s a Better Way

Recently as ASSET is a 3rd party tool supporter of Xilinx FPGAs for a number of applications, I was reviewing the Xilinx community seeing a lot of users trying to use Vivado and Platform Cable USB II pod for production in-system programming with less-than-optimal results or no results at all. First, Xilinx says the Platform Cable USB II with Vivado/SDK as the UI, is to be used for prototype programming and is a design tool, not a production tool.

DCI Debug on the AAEON UP Xtreme i11 board

Finally! A publicly available board with Intel Direct Connect Interface (DCI) working out of the box. With our SourcePoint JTAG-based debugger, it is now possible to explore the inner workings of low-level firmware with all the power of CPU-hardware-assisted run-control and trace features, including Intel Processor Trace and Architectural Event Trace.
