SEGGER and Geehy partner to fully support the APM32 series MCU

As part of a partnership with Geehy Semiconductor, SEGGER’s J-Links debug probes, as well as its family of Flasher in-circuit programmers, fully support the Geehy Polaris APM32 series MCU. Geehy and their customers now enjoy the benefits of J-Link Prime with these devices being supported right out of the box.

“It is a great honor to cooperate with SEGGER," said Evan Wang, executive VP of Geehy. “Now all of our APM32 series MCUs are fully supported by SEGGER’s family of J-Link debug probes. This opportunity helps us to better serve our domestic and international customers and to support engineers in developing embedded systems quickly and easily.”

“We are thrilled to partner with Geehy, making the most of their high-performance industrial and automotive-grade MCUs," says Ivo Geilenbruegge, Managing Director of SEGGER. “With J-Link Prime, SEGGER makes sure that J-Links and Flashers deliver the best performance possible for debugging and flash programming all APM32 devices. We are looking forward to expanding our partnership with Geehy in the years to come.”

About J-Link

SEGGER J-Links are the most widely used line of debug probes on the market. They provide an unparalleled debug experience using capabilities fine-tuned for software development and production. Features include high performance flashloaders, up to 4 MB/s download speed, and the ability to set an unlimited number of breakpoints in the flash memory of MCUs. J-Link can be used by all major IDEs, from free Eclipse-based ones (directly or via GDB) up to commercial ones, including SEGGER Embedded Studio. With features such as Real-Time Transfer (RTT) for interactive user I/O in embedded applications, and High Speed Sampling (HSS) for data acquisition, J-Link is a key component of many third-party utilities that provide real time system tracing and inspection. With J-Link come many utilities such as the J-Link GDB Server and J-Scope for real-time data visualization as well as J-Flash, a production-grade programming software, and Ozone, the J-Link debugger (J-Link PLUS or higher required). J-Link comes with free software and firmware updates. All supported devices can be used without the need to buy an additional license. No hidden costs. No future costs. J-Link debug probes, with their outstanding performance, robustness, and ease of use are the market-leading debug probes today. They simply work!
