Biographical information

Anthony is a software engineer with over 25 years experience. He has worked in computer aided design, and on software for networking hardware. Over the last 10 years his main area of work, first for Digital, and more recently for ARM, has been on tools for debugging embedded software. In particular he lead the team that developed the first software to exploited ARM's trace hardware, and has worked on a number of ARM's and Digital's debuggers.

For the last two years Anthony has spent much of his time investigating the problem of describing embedded hardware to debuggers. From these investigations he concluded that there is an opportunity to extend and use the IP-XACT standard (created by The Spirit Consortium for the exchange of information about IP between EDA tools) to solve this problem.

Anthony is now interim chairman of The Spirit Consortium's new Debug Technical Working Group, which is working on the application of IP-XACT to embedded debug.
