Understanding and verifying an embedded application can be extremely challenging. Many developers are faced with guessing or inferring that their application is behaving properly. Modern microcontrollers and toolchains now allow developers to perform a deep insight analysis to understand and verify their applications. Deep insight analysis involves three key areas: statistical profiling, application, and instruction tracing. In this session, we'll examine the hardware and software tools that developers need and how they can be employed to perform deep insight analysis on an application. We explore tips and tricks for setting up the analysis and how developers can use them to understand and verify their own applications.


- The hardware and software tools necessary for deep insight analysis
- What makes up deep insight analysis
- How to perform a statistical profile
- How to use instruction tracing to validate an application
- Setting up and using tracing to discover what an application is doing
