J-Link is the fastest emulator for Renesas Electronics’ RX core

After introducing J-Link for the Renesas Electronics RX core some months ago, SEGGER has fully optimized support for the RX MCU Series, and achieving download speeds of 760 Kbytes/sec for the regular J-Link and 1400 Kbytes/sec for J-Link Ultra. With these performance values, J-Link is by far the fastest emulator for the Renesas Electronics RX600 devices currently on the market.

In addition, Flash Breakpoints and Flash Download for the RX600 MCUs are built into the J-Link software and are available at no additional cost.
J-Link is fully compatible with the Renesas Electronics HEW as well as IAR's Embedded Workbench and can be easily used as a powerful alternative to Renesas Electronics' E1 emulator.
The J-Link products are 2 to 10 times faster in debugging and download than other currently available emulators.
“We believe that this makes J-Link the number one choice for developers using the RX600 core series, since fast download and turnaround times are extremely important when debugging larger programs,” says Dirk Akemann, Marketing Manager of SEGGER.
“We know from previous experience that SEGGER’s engineers are highly skilled in their design for the J-Link family of emulators. We have been pleased with the recent improvements to the J-Link for the RX devices,” says Peter Carbone, senior director, Consumer & Industrial Business Unit, Renesas Electronics America.
