SEGGER officially supports debugging in Visual Studio Code

SEGGER announces its official support for debugging embedded systems in Visual Studio Code (VS Code) with all members of the J-Link family, from J-Link BASE to J-Link PRO, including J-Link EDU Mini and J-Link OB.

VS Code, as a free-of-charge and open-source tool, has become a popular utility for software development and is widely used for embedded project development. Its available extensions add more capabilities beyond the scope of source code editing, including extensions for debugging embedded systems.

With support of J-Link, the most widely used line of debug probes on the market, its advanced features, such as I/O via RTT or SWO, Live Watches, and RTOS Awareness, enable efficient debugging in VS Code.

J-Link adds support for thousands of devices and embedded platforms. All supported devices can be used without the need to buy an additional license.

"The official support for J-Link and VS Code is a commitment to the embedded software community," says Dirk Akemann, Marketing Manager at SEGGER. "SEGGER ensured the smooth and ablest integration and provides examples, instructions, and official documentation. It is safe to say that J-Link is the one debug probe for all VS Code users."

VS Code and all J-Link tools are available for Linux, macOS, and Windows, in 32-bit and 64-bit systems, on Arm, Intel, and Apple Silicon.
J-Link comes with free software and firmware updates. No hidden costs. No future costs.
