Using Serial Wire Viewer to Confirm CPU Speed

Serial Wire Viewer (SWV) is a data trace feature found on many ARM Cortex-M3, M4, M7, M23, and M33 processors. This note describes how to take advantage of the UART communications capabilities in the CoreSight™ Serial Wire Viewer to determine the CPU frequency. SWV Data trace frames are output on the Serial Wire Output (SWO) pin at a bit rate that is a ratio of the CPU core clock. An adjustable divider configures the bit rate of the UART in the range of the debug adapter.
