Lauterbach GmbH

Lauterbach is the largest manufacturer of emulators and debuggers worldwide. Founded in 1979 the company has over 30 years of experience in embedded microprocessor designs and development tools. 

Our product line TRACE32® supports technologies like JTAG, BDM, NEXUS or ETM with embedded debuggers, software and hardware trace and logic analyzer systems for over 3500 cores and CPUs within 250 families like ARM9, ARM11, CORTEX, PowerPC, MIPS, TriCore, etc.

Everything from a single source

Everything that is required for emulation, debugging, real-time trace and logic analysis in embedded designs can be supplied by Lauterbach. Since all of the software and hardware modules are developed by Lauterbach in Höhenkirchen-Siegertsbrunn this ensures optimum integration between individual components.


Open system

Lauterbach systems have open interfaces to other products in the tool chain. Long-standing partnerships with all well-known suppliers in the embedded sector guarantee un-paralleled inter-operation. For example, TRACE32 already offers exceptional integration with numerous compilers, real-time operating systems and case tools, all of which have been extensively tested under practical conditions.

Open user interface for everything

All Lauterbach products are supplied with the same TRACE32-PowerView user interface. Customers who have been trained once will find it easy to switch to any other system in the range of TRACE32 products.

Long-term investment through modularity and compatibility

The decision to make Lauterbach systems modular and to provide an open interface has meant that customers can protect their investment and guard against obsolescence. First generation TRACE32 systems have been compatible with follow up devices for over 10 years. Systems are easily scalable so that an entry-level system can be upgraded with additional technology without a problem and at a low cost.

The full array of architectures supported

With very few exceptions TRACE32 is able to support all well-known processor architectures from 8-bit to 64-bit. Customers increasingly demand this unique feature because development cycles of modern products are becoming shorter and it is often necessary to change to another suitable processor for the next project. The ability for the same tools with little or no modification to be used is a real plus for Lauterbach systems. Today more than 1000 different microcontrollers are supported.
