This book provides an in-depth overview of on chip instrumentation
technologies and various approaches taken in adding instrumentation
to System on Chip (ASIC, ASSP, FPGA, etc.) design that are
collectively becoming known as Design for Debug (DfD). On chip
instruments are hardware based blocks that are added to a design
for the specific purpose and improving the visibility of internal
or embedded portions of the design (specific instruction flow in a
processor, bus transaction in an on chip bus as examples) to
improve the analysis or optimization capabilities for a SoC. DfD is
the methodology and infrastructure that surrounds the
instrumentation. Coverage includes specific design examples and
discussion of implementations and DfD tradeoffs in a decision to
design or select instrumentation or SoC that include
instrumentation. Although the focus will be on hardware
implementations, software and tools will be discussed in some
