This article describes a comprehensive approach for silicon debug of a server chipset that includes a high-performance, third-generation chip-multithreaded (CMT) Sparc microprocessor. Efficiently debugging the chipset required a combination of debug features in silicon and system platforms, firmware support for debug, test generation tools, and debug data interpretation tools. Several useful lessons were learned in the process.
