SEGGER J-Link Debug Programmer

The SEGGER J-Link EDU is very similar to the J-Link BASE. If you're going to use your debugger strictly for personal, non-commercial projects, such as publishing open source designs that you're not selling, then you should get this EDU version. It's the same but significantly cheaper. The J-Link is fast. Stepping through breakpoints and reading memory addresses is quick, as is programming the flash memory on the chips. It's real strength, though, is that it's so vendor and tool neutral. Most chip vendors today provide low cost (or free) tools, but they also lock you into their chips and force you to accept the choice they've made for you. Segger's J-Link is a nice change in that respect, since you can be reasonably certain it will work with any chip, in any major tool-chain, and you're free to change camp (or OS or IDE) without having to buy a new debugger every time.

Quick Spec

  • RTOS
  • File System
  • TCP/IP Stack
  • Graphics Library
  • USB Stacks
  • Bootloader
  • Digital Signiture
  • Encryption
  • Debug Probes
  • In-circuit-programmers
  • It's USB based and uses a high-speed MCU internally, not an FTDI convertor like most low cost debugger. More debugging, less waiting
  • It support both JTAG (ARM7/9/11) and SWD (ARM Cortex), and has you covered for any core: ARM7/9/11, Cortex-A5/A8/A9, Cortex-M0/M0+/M1/M3/M4, Cortex-R4
  • It's toolchain, IDE and vendor neutral, so you only need to buy one tool for all of your ARM needs and be done with it forever
  • Support GDB-based debugging and flash programming on Linux, Windows and the Mac via the free GDB Server
  • Supports most major IDEs, including Keil, IAR Atmel Studio, Crossworks for ARM
  • It includes flash-programming algorithms for most MCUs, and Segger is very pro-active about updating their drivers to support the newest chipsets
  • It just works, and keeps on working, and it'll be there for you in several years time
