Percepio Tracealyzer for Linux wins Elektra Design Tools and Development Software Award 2021

VäSTERÃ¥S, SWEDEN, December 6, 2021 / – Percepio®, the leader in visual trace diagnostics for embedded systems and the Internet of Things (IoT), received the prestigious Elektra Award 2021 for its Tracealyzer visual trace diagnostic tool for Linux.

Tracealyzer for Linux was voted Best Product in the Design Tools and Development Software category by the jury, ahead of development tools from five other companies, including Cadence and Synopsys.

“We are absolutely delighted to have won this honor for our efforts to simplify and accelerate development, testing and debugging for embedded Linux developers,†said Mike Skrtic, vice president of marketing and sales at Percepio upon acceptance of the trophy as a virtual attendant of the Elektra. The awards ceremony was held in London earlier this week. “I would like to say a big thank you to our team, who have worked incredibly hard over the past 18 months on this latest incarnation of Tracealyzer, and to the organizers of the Elektra Awards for putting on such a great night for the live and virtual attendees. . ”

Tracealyzer for Linux is a visual trace diagnostic tool that provides in-depth real-time information on the runtime behavior of embedded Linux systems. Much more user-friendly than traditional Linux tools and easy to learn, Tracealyzer provides a visual timeline of software activity through all processes, with intuitive means of filtering, searching and zooming. An extensive set of over 30 visual charts enables a unique top-down workflow, where developers can spot issues in high-level overviews and drill down to find out the root cause.

Tracealyzer visualizes for example thread scheduling and interrupts, software synchronization, CPU load, system calls, signals, file system events, as well as information logged from application code. All integrated into a single system.

Tracealyzer for Linux enables embedded Linux developers to create smarter, more reliable products, with more predictable development time and costs. It is available through Percepio’s worldwide distribution network; browse the list of partners to locate a distributor in your area.
