A Trio of Webinars on x86 JTAG-based Debugging

For each of the months of January, February and March, I did a webinar on JTAG-based debugging. Since each of the video recordings are about 45 minutes long, I thought it would be helpful to point out the highlights of each, if you don’t have time to sit through the full durations. At the risk of sounding immodest, there are some real gems of information within the demos of each webinar.

Webinar: Embedded @Scale JTAG-based Debug of x86 Servers

Beginning with Microsoft Azure's Project Olympus, and now a standard within the Open Compute Project, many datacenter servers are now optionally equipped with hardware connectivity between the platform BMC and CPU scan chain. The BMC can thus act as an autonomous JTAG-based embedded out-of-band debug agent, provide low-level triage of system events, such as crashes and hangs. Other use cases, such as hardware validation, manufacturing test, and forensics telemetry are also enabled by this technology.

Webinar: Intel Architectural Event Trace

Don't miss it! ASSET's Alan Sguigna (that's me), in collaboration with the UEFI Forum, will be presenting and demonstrating SourcePoint using the Intel Architectural Event Trace (AET) feature, which offers an unparalleled level of insight into x86 event generation and code execution.

Webinar: JTAG-based debugging of AMD EPYC servers

ASSET is pleased to announce that yours truly is presenting a technical session on JTAG-based firmware debugging of AMD EPYC servers, to be held on Wednesday, January 27th at 1:30pm Central Standard Time.
