The present invention relates to a computing platform and a relative computer implemented method for synchronize the prototype execution and simulation of hardware devices. The computing platform (1) comprises a debugger module (2), a memory (3) for storing instructions and data of a computer program; a CPU (4) configured for executing said computer program; said debugger module (2) being in signal communication with said memory (3) through a first debugger channel (dbg2Mem). Characteristic of the computing platform is that it comprises at least one pin (7) and at least one trigger point module (8), said at least one pin (7) being connectable to an electronic device (Ext) that is external to the computing platform; said at least one trigger point module (8) being in signal communication with said at least one pin (7) through a first trigger channel (tgr2pin), said debugger module (2) through a second trigger channel (t2d), said CPU (4) through a third trigger channel (tProbe), said at least one trigger point module (8) having a first register (10a) for storing a first trigger point (RefStartTrgPnt) that corresponds to a first instruction of said program to be monitored.

Abstract

The present invention relates to a computing platform and a relative computer implemented method for synchronize the prototype execution and simulation of hardware devices. The computing platform (1) comprises a debugger module (2), a memory (3) for storing instructions and data of a computer program; a CPU (4) configured for executing said computer program; said debugger module (2) being in signal communication with said memory (3) through a first debugger channel (dbg2Mem). Characteristic of the computing platform is that it comprises at least one pin (7) and at least one trigger point module (8), said at least one pin (7) being connectable to an electronic device (Ext) that is external to the computing platform; said at least one trigger point module (8) being in signal communication with said at least one pin (7) through a first trigger channel (tgr2pin), said debugger module (2) through a second trigger channel (t2d), said CPU (4) through a third trigger channel (tProbe), said at least one trigger point module (8) having a first register (10a) for storing a first trigger point (RefStartTrgPnt) that corresponds to a first instruction of said program to be monitored.
