SWO/SWV on LPC-Link2 with CMSIS-DAP?

We have an LPC55S69 on an LPCXpresso556S9, and we are trying to use the built-in LPC-Link2 (an LPC4322) as a debugger.


Running the CMSIS-DAP firmware (v5.361) on the LPC-Link2, the probe reports that it has no SWO/SWV capabilities; rltool output:


> probestatus
Index = 1
Manufacturer = NXP Semiconductors
Description = LPC-LINK2 CMSIS-DAP V5.361
Serial Number = JSAQCQIQ
VID:PID = 1FC9:0090
Path = /dev/hidraw2

IsOpen = TRUE
WireInitialized = TRUE
WireProtocol = SWD
CoresConfigured = TRUE
PacketSize = 1024
Reference Count = 1
Probe Type = CMSIS-DAP

TAP = 0
Core = 0
CoreReferenceCount = 1
HighestPriority = 0
APID = 84770001
APIndex = 00
DPID = 6ba02477
CorePartNo = M33

AddrInc = 1024

Probe Reference Count = 1

However, we know that this is not the case: when running (for example) the lpcxpresso55s69_hello_world_swo via the MCUXpresso IDE (version 11.1.1_3241), we are able to get DWT data (and can see from a logic analyzer that there is DWT data on the SWO pin on the SWD header) -- and we know that the LPC55S69 can successfully generate TPIU-framed ITM data as well by using an external debugger via the SWD header.


Our questions: it appears that MCUXpresso is going through an interface other than CMSIS-DAP to enable SWO trace on the LPC-Link2; is this interface documented so we can use it through other CMSIS-DAP based tooling? Alternatively, is there LPC-Link2 firmware that correctly reflects its SWV capabilities via CMSIS-DAP?


With our thanks in advance for any help you can provide!
