Initialization to route ETM/ITM trace to external pins

Is there an init script or code sample that will show the complete steps for exporting ETM/ITM trace data to the package pins?

Using ARM DS-5 with Vybrid Tower system and CMSIS-DAP connection, running 'hello_world' example.   Win32 host.


I have the IOMUXC regs programmed (using this script: as a starting point)

and can unlock and program the TPIU, ATB funnels and ETM's, and enable the clocks to these sections via the CCM_CCPGR's and enable trace clock via CCM_CSCDR3.

I'm getting a TRACECLK on the CoreSight connector, but the data signals are stubbornly refusing to wiggle (unless I put the TPIU into test pattern mode -- this will put the expected activity on the TRACEDATA pins).


VYBRIDRM.pdf section 20.9 briefly mentions "The Platform Trace Control (Pltf-TCTL) module controls the trace flow..." and details (4) bits - that disable TPIU trace or enable SWO trace, but this hasn't yielded the magic bit to make it all work.


Is there a known-good script or equivalent to make this work?
