Category: Software Debug and Trace

Our new SourcePoint Intel release, 7.12.22, is now in production and available to all subscribers. Our most polished, fully-featured release yet, it adds the following features:
It’s probably not well-known, but AMD platforms have special low-level breakpoint capabilities that aren’t available on Intel platforms. They are extremely powerful; here’s how to use them.
If you want to learn about UEFI, you have to be able to see the source code and debug it. Here’s how to build a debug Tianocore image on the AAEON UP Xtreme Whiskey Lake board, flash it onto the target, and use SourcePoint to debug it with Intel Direct Connect Interface (DCI).
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.
In collaboration with the UEFI Forum, I’ll be presenting Beyond Printf: Real-Time UEFI Debugging on Wednesday, October 27th, 2021 at 10am CT.
