New Software Enhanced J-Link Plus

SEGGER Microcontroller introduces a new member to the J-Link family: The fast and feature rich J-Link Plus.

The J-Link Plus includes licenses for all J-Link related software enhancements. The developer now receives access to an unlimited number of breakpoints while debugging in flash memory and a production grade flash programming utility (J-Flash). Another benefit is compatibility with all popular tool-chains, including GDB and RDI based tool-chains for ARM and Renesas RX cores.

As with all J-Link models, the J-Link Plus comes with SEGGER's exceptionally fast flash programming algorithms, allowing download into external CFI-compliant flashes as well as the internal flash of all common microcontrollers. Related software and firmware updates are free of charge.

The price tag for the J-Link Plus is 498 Euro.

“Due to the overwhelming success of the J-Link Ultra+, which is the same as the J-Link Ultra, plus all software licenses for the unit, we decided to come up with a similar unit for J-Link with all licenses included: The J-Link Plus”, says Dirk Akemann, marketing manager of SEGGER.


About J-Link

The SEGGER J-Link is the most popular debug probe on the market. It is tool chain independent and works with free GDB-based tool chains such as emIDE and Eclipse, as well as commercial IDEs from: Microchip (MPLAB® X), Atmel, Atollic, Coocox, Cosmic, Freescale, IAR, KEIL, Mentor Graphics, Python, Rowley, Renesas, Tasking and others. With the J-Link family, investments in the debug probe are preserved when changing compiler or even CPU architecture.

J-Link supports multiple CPU families, such as ARM 7, 9, 11, Cortex-M0, M0+, M1, M3, M4, R4, A5, A8, A9 as well as Renesas RX100, RX200, RX610, 620, 62N, 62T, 630, 631, 63N and Microchip PIC32; there is no need to buy a new J-Link or new license when switching to a different yet supported CPU family or tool-chain. SEGGER is also continuously adding support for additional cores, which in most cases, only requires a software/firmware update. Unlimited free updates are included with even the baseline model of the J-Link family. SEGGER is excited to continue advanced development of its cutting edge embedded tool solutions to be utilized with pretty much any development environment you choose. All J-Links are fully compatible to each other, so an upgrade from a lower-end model to a higher-end model is a matter of a simple plug-and-play.
