SEGGER J-Link understøtter nu Raspberry Pi som host
SEGGER har lanceret version af J-Link softwaren, der retter sig specielt mod Linux Arm og sigter mod industriel automation og andet, der bruger Raspberry Pi eller andre single board computing platforme (in english).SEGGER has just introduced a version of its J-Link software specifically for Linux Arm. Aimed at industrial automation and other applications utilizing Raspberry Pi and other single board computing platforms, this new package contains all command-line versions of the software.
It supports the same target devices and the full feature set encompassed in the already-established Windows, macOS and Linux x86 versions. These features include high-speed download into Flash memory and an unlimited number of breakpoints (even in Flash memory), as well as a J-Link GDB server which makes it compatible with all popular development environments.
The software is available for both 32-bit and 64-bit Arm Linux, taking full advantage of the 64-bit CPU and all memory available in the system. It works on Raspberry Pi, as well as the various compatibles that are now on the market. The J-Link SDK also fully supports the writing of custom programs for J-Link on Arm Linux.
- Although it seems very unusual, even unlikely, it is now possible to use a small Raspberry Pi 4 single board computer with the Eclipse for Embedded C/C++ Developers package and the additional xPack binary tools, plus SEGGER's J-Link debug probe and J-Link software, to create projects, build them and run debug sessions, says Liviu Ionescu, Developer of the Open-Source Eclipse Embedded CDT project.
- Raspberry Pi is gaining more and more popularity as a small, inexpensive yet powerful multi-purpose computing solution. While the typical use is automated test systems, with the Raspberry Pi acting as a J-Link bridge or server in the LAN/WLAN, there are many other applications. With Eclipse Embedded CDT coming, it is possible to use Raspberry Pi and J-Link as hardware to develop, download and debug firmware for embedded devices, says Rolf Segger, founder of SEGGER.
