SEGGER makes it easy to add support for new devices to J-Link and Flasher

Monheim am Rhein, Germany – September 13th, 2022

The new J-Link Device Support Kit makes it even easier to add support for new devices to SEGGER’s J-Link debug probes and Flasher programmers. The kit comes with all files required to create an end-user package to add devices to J-Link and Flasher. Included is a ready-to-go example with source code as well as a template to easily create an installer.

The kit supports adding devices to the SEGGER family of J-Link debug probes manually – by copying files – or automatically by running a customized installer. Using the installer, Windows users can add devices with the click of a button.

Support extends naturally to the SEGGER family of Flasher in-circuit programmers, making professional solutions for low, medium and high volume production available.

“We feel it is important for our customers and partners to know they can add devices on their own. They can rely on but don’t have to depend on SEGGER,” says Rolf Segger, founder of SEGGER. “Silicon vendors can work with the market-leading J-Link knowing they can bring up their devices on their own schedule, even pre-silicon. This way, J-Link debug probes can be used on newly introduced devices, even before releasing them to the market.”

Adding new devices is simple: Just customize the working example. Devices added this way have the same functionality as devices added by SEGGER, including the ability to download directly into and set an unlimited number of breakpoints in flash memory.

The achievable programming speed is very close to the theoretical maximum imposed by the flash memory.

The created end-user packages can be redistributed at no cost. More information can be found here on the SEGGER wiki.

PCIe Gen5 x16 Running on the Achronix VectorPath Accelerator Card

Sponsored by Achronix

In this demo, Achronix engineers show the VectorPath Accelerator Card successfully linking up to a PCIe Gen5 x16 host and write data to and read data from GDDR6 memory. The VectorPath accelerator card featuring the Speedster7t FPGA is one of the first FPGAs that can natively support this interface within its PCIe subsystem. Speedster7t FPGAs offer a revolutionary new architecture that Achronix developed to address the highest performance data acceleration challenges.

"Scalable Power Delivery" for High-Performance ASICs, SoCs, and xPUs

Sponsored by Infineon

Today’s AI and Networking applications are driving an exponential increase in compute power. When it comes to scaling power for these kinds of applications with next generation chipsets, we need to keep in mind package size constraints, dynamic current balancing, and output capacitance. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Mark Rodrigues from Infineon joins Amelia Dalton to discuss the system design challenges with increasing power density for next generation chipsets, the benefits that phase paralleling brings to the table, and why Infineon’s best in class transient performance with XDP architecture and Trans Inductor Voltage Regulator can help power  your next high performance ASIC, SoC or xPU design.
