PLS Development Tools: NXP Gold Partner

PLS Development Tools, based in Germany, was founded in 1990. Since then, the company has demonstrated its position as an international technology leader in the field of debuggers, emulators and trace solutions for embedded systems. The innovative and modular software architecture of the Universal Debug Engine (UDE) guarantees optimal conditions for debugging SoC-based systems. By means of intelligent use of modern on-chip debug and trace units, valuable functions like profiling and code coverage are available for system optimization and test. The Universal Access Device family (UAD2pro/UAD2next/UAD3+) complete the full featured debug solution with an efficient and high-speed target access. With a flexible adapter a wide range of interfaces are supported. UDE offers an entirely new dimension for fast and flexible access to multi-core systems with the support of important architectures such as PowerArchitecture, ARM/Cortex as well as simulation platforms of different vendors.
