Question:

How do I enable TraceX in SSP?

Answer:

To get TraceX working in your SSP project follow the below steps.

1. Install TraceX on the PC
2. In e2 studio go to Window->PreferencesC/C++->Renesas->TraceX, and fill in the TraceX path


3. To enable TraxeX in ThreadX you need to add ThreadX source to the project (is SSP 1.0.0, in HAL/Common add "new->framework->RTOS->ThreadX Source"), then in the properties for ThreadX source, enable Event Trace as seen below:

4. Then, when you have enabled TraceX in the ThreadX kernel source, and run the project, when you want to view the trace buffer in TraceX, in e2studio, go to Run->TraceX->Launch TraceX Debugging and enter :


4. Click on OK and e2 studio will download the trace buffer and launch TraceX.
