CoreSight components provide features that allow for continuous collection of system information for later off-line analysis. Execution trace generation macrocells exist for use with processors, software can be implemented with dedicated trace generation, and some peripherals can generate performance monitoring trace streams. Trace and debug are used together at all stages in the design flow from initial platform bring-up, through software development and optimization, and into in-field debug or failure analysis. Historically, external JTAG and self-hosted internal monitor methods of debugging exist.
