19-01-2021 | Segger | Design & Manufacture

SEGGER’s complete portfolio of J-Link software is now offered for Linux on ARM, for both 32-bit and 64-bit platforms. This encompasses both the command-line programs and GUI tools including J-Flash, J-Flash SPI, J-Scope, the J-Link Configurator and the GUI version of the GDB Server.

“J-Link can now be used on Raspberry Pi and other ARM-based machines, without any limitations,” says Alex Grüner, CTO at SEGGER. “Small single-board ARM computers now offer the same functionality as x86 powered machines. The inexpensive Raspberry Pi and similar boards are now viable options, especially in test farms and production environments.”

The software supports the same target devices and features located in existing J-Link packages for other platforms. This incorporates high-speed download into flash memory and an unlimited amount of breakpoints, even in flash memory, as well as the GDB Server, to make it compatible with every popular development environments.

The new package adds to those previously available for Windows, macOS, and Linux on x86, all of which support 32-bit and 64-bit hosts. The packages for all platforms are maintained and updated in parallel.
