Recently I am working on the SWO interface of SAM4S Xplained board (Not Xplained Pro). I am running FreeRTOS on this board and trying to work with the integrated Trace tool available in Atmel Studio 6.2. However, I am unable to start the trace recorder after clock initialization because an error message pops up indicating that the connected emulator does not support SWO. I have double checked it on the web documents available for SAM4S Xplained at this link
It clearly indicates that the J-Link OB supports JTAG/SWD + SWO interface. Does anyone here have any experience with this. If so please let me know.
Is this related to the trace tool or just related to any swo output? Make sure you are connected using swd rather than jtag.
The message that I am getting is that the emulator does not support SWO output, however I have checked it in the documents on SAM4S Xplained and it clearly indicates that the OB J-Link available on SAM4S Xplained supports SWO Interface. I am using SWD to program the board but still it shows the same message.
It appears as the J-Link version used on the SAM4S Xplained support SWD but not SWO. We have the same issue with this board. If running Seggers own tool J-Link Commander and trying the command "SWOStat" you also get a similar error message, so it is not just Atmel Studio...
Thanks for sharing your experience, I am also trying to get Trace via SAM-ICE on SAM4S-EK board but it seems SAM-ICE does not support SWO either.
