SEGGER’s complete J-Link software now available for Linux on ARM

Monheim am Rhein, Germany – 14th January 2021

SEGGER’s entire portfolio of J-Link software is now available for Linux on ARM, for both 32-bit and 64-bit platforms.

This includes both the command-line programs and GUI tools such as J-Flash, J-Flash SPI, J-Scope, the J-Link Configurator and the GUI version of the GDB Server.

“J-Link can now be used on Raspberry Pi and other ARM-based machines, without any limitations,” says Alex Grüner, CTO at SEGGER. “Small single-board ARM computers now offer the same functionality as x86 powered machines. The inexpensive Raspberry Pi and similar boards are now viable options, especially in test farms and production environments.”

J-Link for Linux on ARM supports the same target devices and features found in existing J-Link packages for other platforms. This includes high-speed download into flash memory and an unlimited number of breakpoints, even in flash memory, as well as the GDB Server to make it compatible with all popular development environments.

The new package adds to those already available for Windows, macOS, and Linux on x86, all of which support 32-bit and 64-bit hosts.

All packages for all platforms are maintained and updated in parallel. They are publicly available for download, at no charge, from www.segger.com

Use Configurable Digital IO To Give Your Industrial Controller the Edge

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

As factories get bigger, centralized industrial process control has become difficult to manage. While there have been attempts to simplify the task, it remains unwieldy. In this design solution, we briefly review the centralized approach before looking at what potential changes edge computing will bring to the factory floor. We also show a digital IO IC that allows for smaller, more adaptable programmable logic controllers (PLCs) more suited to this developing architecture.
