J-Link remote debugging accelerated by SEGGER’s new server network

SEGGER announces that it now operates a worldwide network of J-Link Remote Servers, enabling a user to debug target systems from anywhere in the world at even higher speeds than before.

The J-Link Remote Servers are available to every J-Link user at no cost. While using the closest server significantly increases communication speed, customers still have the option to set up their own server if desired or required by company policy. 

“Remote debugging and flash programming is now more common than ever.” says James Murphy, Vice President of Sales, SEGGER USA. “Recognizing this, SEGGER has further enhanced remote capabilities for J-Link, Flashers, and development tools. The server network now provides this great feature at even greater speed.”

J-Link Remote Server has been proven over many years as an efficient way to debug Embedded Systems. The target can be thousands of miles away or just down the street, even behind a corporate firewall. With J-Link Remote Server, developers see almost no difference working remotely, it’s as if the J-Link and target hardware were sitting on their desks. 

The connection is secure, based on the proven algorithms of SEGGER's cryptography library emCrypt. The authentication uses challenge-response methods to ensure the password is never visible and encrypts all data transfer.

J-Link Remote Server is also compatible with SEGGER’s line of Flasher production programmers. By allowing full remotecontrol of a flash programmer, the cost of moving hardware and/or people is significantly reduced.
