How will I know the number of cycle of code execution has been generated?

Latest Updated:10/29/2014

Question:

How can I find out the number of cycles of execution for code that has been generated ?

Answer:

The execution cycle count can be measured in the simulator environment.

  • If you are using the High-performance Embedded Workshop:
    Select [View -> CPU -> Status] from the menu of the HEW, click on the [Platform] tabbed page of the [Status] window, and check the number of cycles for execution shown in response to running or stepped execution of the source code.

  • If you are using the CubeSuite+ environment:
    Select [View -> Event] and check the number of cycles for execution shown in [Execution Cycle Count] for [Run-Break Timer] of the opened dialog box in response to running or stepped execution of the source code.
