SEGGER Microcontroller today announced the free availability of the J-Link GDB-Server. As the GNU-tool-chain gains ground in terms of performance and usability, GDB continues to grow in popularity. Per the numerous requests of this expanding community, SEGGER is now offering their professionally developed GDB-Server for free to all users of the SEGGER J-Link product line. The free GDB-server is now available for download as part of the J-Link Software and Documentation pack V4.35e.
“With the now free GDB-Server the GNU community has easier access to the fastest debug emulator in the market. For an unlimited debug experience we also offer Flash Breakpoints. This option is included in our non-commercial J-Link EDU, which is especially attractive to educational institutions”, says Dirk Akemann, Partnership Marketing Manager at SEGGER.
