Yes indeed, in the year 2000 I had been product manager for such tool, the visionTRACE for ColdFire which then was too much ahead of its time. Nowadays, thanks to embeddable trace logic, many chips offer such capabilites and there are plenty of tools to replace the good old in-circuit-emulator. However, thanks to Stephen for featuring Perl, which often offers quick and dirty solutions in places where one would not dare to use the obvious office "tools".

Articles like this appeared nearly 10 years ago when on chip trace first hit the market in a wide range of 32 bit processors....other than TI. I fail to see why this article merits being positioned under the Top Features section. Its a useful educational piece for new engineers getting to grips with what is to them new technology....but to imply that TI has somehow discovered on-chip trace as this article does truly borders on the ridiculous.
