Embedded developers can now use SEGGER Embedded Studio IDE with the Renesas RE Family of microcontrollers (MCUs). Embedded Studio is SEGGER’s cross-platform integrated development environment (IDE) for embedded systems development.
J-Link supports Raspberry Pi RP2040
Microcontrollers are the workhorses powering the digital transformation of our world. RP2040 is the debut microcontroller from the Raspberry Pi Foundation and is now fully supported by SEGGER J-Link.
Frank Riemenschneider joins SEGGER as marketing manager
Starting 1st March 2021, Frank Riemenschneider will further strengthen the marketing team at SEGGER Microcontroller, joining as Marketing and PR Manager. Together with Dirk Akemann, he will amplify the work of expanding and solidifying SEGGER’s position in Europe, the USA and Asia as a manufacturer of innovative products; already very well-known and used by world-renowned market leaders in industry.
SEGGER Flasher Compact: the almost-anything-programmer
The SEGGER Flasher Compact is a full-featured, in-circuit, universal flash programming tool in a housing with a footprint smaller than that of a credit card. While the Flasher Compact can be used in stand-alone or PC-based mode, it is primarily designed for integration into production rigs or automated test equipment (ATE) where space is limited.
Apple M1-optimised SEGGER Embedded Studio available
SEGGER announces its Embedded Studio build for the newly released Apple M1, Apple’s first ARM-based system-on-chip (SoC) designed specifically for Mac. Embedded Studio is SEGGER’s cross-platform Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for ARM/Cortex and RISC-V.
SEGGER ecosystem available for the Renesas RE MCUs
SEGGER Microcontroller, in cooperation with Renesas, has announced the availability of its entire product portfolio for the Renesas RE Family microcontroller units (MCUs). This includes a full line of development tools, embedded software and production tools, making firmware development for the Arm-based Renesas RE MCUs fast and easy.
Open Flashloader for direct programming of RISC-V systems
SEGGER has released a new Open Flashloader for RISC-V systems. The template, which can be adjusted to fit any RISC-V system, allows engineers to write flash loaders which fit into just 2kB of RAM. This enables J-Link debug probes to download directly and easily into the flash memory of a RISC-V Microcontroller or SoC.
SEGGER's J-Link OB plays crucial role in HiFive Inventor
SEGGER’s J-Link on-board debug probes can be found on hundreds of different evaluation boards and single-board computers around the globe. But few are as prominent as the BBC Doctor Who HiFive Inventor Coding Kit. It is a new children’s IoT coding platform created by US educational coding firm Tynker and RISC-V IP provider SiFive, and backed by BBC Studios.
Complete J-Link software now available for Linux on ARM
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.
Programming QSPI at maximum speed with Flasher PRO
SEGGER has added quad mode programming for QSPI Flashes to its universal flash programmer, maximising programming speed for production environments. Flasher PRO ensures that the time gained using four-pin transfer translates directly to increased productivity. Operating in either PC-based or stand-alone mode, the Flasher PRO reaches the theoretical minimum programming time of the QSPI device itself.
J-Link remote debugging accelerated by server network
The J-Link Remote Servers are available to every J-Link user at no cost. While using the closest server significantly increases communication speed, customers still have the option to set up their own server if desired or required by company policy.
Embedded Studio shrinks RISC-V application size
SEGGER’s Embedded Studio for RISC-V now comes with the SEGGER Linker in addition to the GNU linker. The SEGGER Linker has been developed from the ground up to create executables for Embedded Systems. For RISC-V, it shrinks the size of the resulting programs by up to 15%, shortens link time, delivers a detailed map file and provides more flexibility.
SEGGER’s SystemView available under friendly licensing
It has been announced that SEGGER’s SystemView is now available under Friendly Licensing, making the important task of Embedded Systems verification accessible to everyone. SystemView reveals the true runtime behaviour of an application: Developers can make sure that a system performs as designed.
embOS RTOS turns 64-bit SoCs into single chip computers
SEGGER has announced that its embOS RTOS now supports 64-bit processor cores. Today, most IoT implementations and other sophisticated embedded applications rely on 32-bit CPUs. In the very near future, however, they will start migrating to higher performance 64-bit CPU.
RISC-V Floating-Point Library supports RV32E embedded variant
SEGGER has announced a new version of the RISC-V Floating-Point Library with full support for RV32E – the embedded variant of the RISC-V core. The new library leads to a massive reduction in code size for RISC-V applications using floating point.
SEGGER J-Link adds support for Raspberry Pi as host
SEGGER has just introduced a version of its J-Link software specifically for Linux Arm. Aimed at industrial automation and other applications utilising Raspberry Pi and other single board computing platforms, this new package contains all command-line versions of the softwares
SEGGER Embedded Studio V5 minimises code size
The newly released SEGGER Embedded Studio V5 for Arm processors comes with the company’s Compiler, Linker, Runtime and Floating-Point libraries included. All components are designed from the ground up for use in embedded systems and work seamlessly to help generate extremely small programs.
SEGGER's J-Link software available for macOS and Linux
With the v6.70 release of SEGGER’s J-Link software, all the included tools are now available on the most popular operating systems (OS) options: Windows, macOS and Linux. While the J-Link software and its accompanying command line tools have been cross-platform for years, the applications with graphical user interfaces (GUIs) have only been available on Windows.
Support for SiFive Insight debug/trace platform
It has been announced that SEGGER’S products are fully compatible with SiFive’s RISC-V processor cores, and now its J-Link probes deliver support for the new SiFive Insight debug/trace platform. This includes SiFive’s latest Nexus-based trace implementation, which enables ongoing monitoring and recording of processor instruction execution.
Debug from home with J-Link remote server
SEGGER’s J-Link Remote Server is a proven way to debug remotely. It has been used for years to debug target systems, thousands of miles away, even behind firewalls. Of its many uses in the past, a particularly important one was for system bring-up when hardware availability was limited, expensive, or otherwise difficult. Today an even more important application has moved into focus.
