ASSET’s SourcePoint® debugger has supported the Intel Core platform from its earliest availability, with full support for source-level debug, Intel Processor Trace, Intel Trace Hub, and other capabilities that may be within the silicon. “Our powerful hardware-assisted JTAG debugger has helped developers get their products to market faster than what was thought possible,” said Larry Osborn, ASSET’s product manager for SourcePoint. “Users in organizations such as Dell, HP, and Lenovo agree that SourcePoint's usability and visibility lead the industry, especially when it comes to UEFI debug.”

SourcePoint operates in multicore, multiprocessor environments and runs on either Microsoft® Windows® or Linux hosts. Features are added constantly to keep up with the ever-changing nature of software development challenges. Availability is now.
