SourcePoint Intel User Guide

Everything you wanted to know about SourcePoint Intel, all in one place. 718 pages describe code, register, memory, PCI device view windows as well as help you unleash the power of breakpoints, processor trace, architectural event trace, and the command language. Click here or on our graphic.

SourcePoint AMD User Guide

Everything you wanted to know about the AMD version of SourcePoint. A little slimmer than the Intel document, since there are fewer trace features supported; but the user interface, run-control functions, and command language are virtually identical. Click here or on the graphic.

At-Speed Printf support collateral

Direct UEFI/firmware printf statements through the Intel Trace Hub, and avoid the backpressure from (1) the serial port, and (2) actual execution of the printf instruction code. The platform thus boots in real-time, making it easier to triage bugs that appear only in the release build. Download this zip file that contains the documentation and support code for at-speed printf.

SourcePoint Installation and Licensing

A step-by-step video for installing SourcePoint, and then activating its license. This applies to node-locked licenses.

Loading source and symbols

This short tutorial illustrates a quick way to load source and symbols into SourcePoint.

Introduction to the Symbols window

This video demonstrates the use of the Symbols window. Our lightning-fast Search feature is displayed, as well as the ability to open the Code, Memory, and Breakpoint windows for symbolic debug purposes.

Getting Started with DCI

An introduction to using SourcePoint to connect to an Intel target using Direct Connect Interface (DCI), also known as DbC (Debug Class). Presuming the target has been configured to enable DCI, it's a simple matter of a few steps to initiate the connection and get run-control and trace to work without the need for an external ECM-XDP3e hardware probe.

How to set up your network license server

ASSET’s use of FLEXlm network licensing allows for licenses to “float” across a sea of hardware ECM-XDP3e probes; thus, providing a very cost-effective means of debugger deployment within an enterprise. This video demonstrates how to set up a FLEXlm network license and server.
