Maybe this scenario sounds familiar—you’ve spent weeks developing code, but inevitably you’re feeling frustrated and concerned that you may have missed something that will put your company or customers at risk. You think, “There must be a better way to get the insight I need to know for sure that the bugs have been worked out, and still make this deadline, without compromising the quality of the code.”
Well, you aren’t alone.
According to a survey by UBM, many developers consider the debugging process and developer tools the two key areas that present current challenges and opportunities for improvement in the future of embedded systems.
Developers need better tools and transparency into their systems to assist them with the debugging process. “Tools promise great insight into system operation. Tools designed for embedded systems let you see, live while it happens, what your program is doing, what resources it’s using, and how it interacts with the external world. The insight they provide is truly powerful; you can often quickly spot problems, issues, or inefficiencies that would take days to discover by other means.”
