TRACE32 and Arduino

With TRACE32 you can debug the applications running on your Arduino Pro Portenta H7, Nicla Vision, or Arduino Nano 33 BLE board via the GDB protocol.
All you need is your Arduino board, a USB cable, some free TRACE32 software, and a free license, which you can request on this page.

Alternatively you can do a lot more with µTrace or one of our other professional debug tools, like debugging the complete software stack on your Portenta H7 or trace program execution in real-time.


Get the Debug Software

To debug your Portenta H7 or Nano 33 BLE download the software package "Debugger for GDB target (Arduino Pro)" from here.

Please note:

  • For SYStem.CPU PORTENTAH7-CM7 you require TRACE32 build 127460 (or higher).
  • For SYStem.CPU NANO33BLE you require TRACE32 build 143546 (or higher).
  • For SYStem.CPU NICLAVISION-CM7 you require TRACE32 build 161007 (or higher).
