SEGGER J-Link software now available for Microsoft Windows on Arm
The software in the new package runs natively on Arm processors, ensuring that no performance or power is lost in emulation. Using J-Link and J-Trace with Windows on Arm looks and feels the same as working on an Intel/AMD-powered computer.
The new package contains the same components as the J-Link suite of software available for other operating systems and provides identical functionality. This includes command-line programs as well as GUI tools such as J-Flash, J-Flash SPI, J-Scope, the J-Link Configurator and the GUI version of the SEGGER GDB Server.
“SEGGER products have been multi-platform for many years," says Rolf Segger, founder of SEGGER. "J-Link software now runs on any combination of Linux, macOS and Windows on Intel/AMD or Arm. Our Embedded Experts do an outstanding job of swiftly adapting to emerging trends and technology. They have proven once again that SEGGER products are truly future-proof. Ease of use, robustness, unparalleled performance, direct download into flash memory, an unlimited number of breakpoints in flash memory, and compatibility with all popular environments, just to name a few, make J-Link an unbeatable choice."
SEGGER tested J-Link software with Windows on Arm natively using a Microsoft Surface tablet and a Raspberry Pi, as well as in a virtual machine on an Arm-powered M1 Mac.
SEGGER J-Links are the most widely used line of debug probes on the market. J-Link opens the door to all major development tools, from commercial toolchains to GDB-driven ones. 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 third-party utilities that provide real time system tracing and inspection.
Also available is SEGGER Embedded Studio for generating, downloading and debugging programs using J-Link.
