embOSView

Features 

The following features are provided:

  • Available for every embOS port
  • Easy to use
  • Additional API trace functionality
  • Communication via J-Link possible
  • Communication via Ethernet possible

embOSView displays the state of a running application using embOS. embOSView is a very helpful analysis tool. It shows the state of every task created by the target application and the state of major system variables.

A serial interface (UART) is normally used for communication with the target. But there are also other communication channels like Ethernet or memory read/write for Cortex-M or RX CPUs or even DCC for ARM7/9 or Cortex A/R CPUs. Every embOS start project already includes everything necessary for using embOSView. embOSView is part of every embOS shipment and trial version.
