Bashing Bugs on SoCs

UltraSoC, the SOC debug company I wrote about a few weeks ago www.eejournal.com/archives/articles/20150728-ultrasoc/ is being pretty imaginative in their marketing. Today, they have launched a new whitepaper,  Performance  Monitoring  Using  UltraSoC by drawing attention to Apple’s delay in launching watchOS 2. All that is generally known is that the delay was caused “by a bug” which most news channels have assumed was purely a software issue. UltraSoc is speculating that it might have been something within the SoC that caused the problem. The company also draws attention to Samsung’s issues with the launch of the S6 phone and Land Rovers issues over doors unlocking.

Certainly any form of debugging of software running on a large complex SoC is fiendishly difficult, so you might want to download the whitepaper yourself from here. http://www.ultrasoc.com/wp-content/uploads/downloads/2015/09/Performance-Monitoring-Using-UltraSoC-White-Paper.pdf And you don’t have to register to get it. Well done UltraSoC.
