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.
Full support for Nuclei RISC-V processor SoCs
In August of 2019, Nuclei and GigaDevice announced the first RISC-V general-purpose MCU, the Bumblebee. Support includes SEGGER's Embedded Studio IDE, its market-leading J-Link debug probe, and its Ozone debugger.
Floating-point library to support RISC-V
SEGGER's stand-alone Floating-Point Library has now been extended to include an assembly-optimised variant for RISC-V implementations. The library contains a complete set of high level mathematical functions that have been written in C, and uses advanced algorithms to maximise performance levels.
Full support for first flash-based RISC-V microcontroller
SEGGER has announced full support for the first commercially available flash-based RISC-V microcontroller introduced by GigaDevice Semiconductor. This support includes SEGGER's Embedded Studio integrated development environment for RISC-V.
Additional support added to the latest multiprotocol SoC
SEGGER added support for the latest Hilscher multiprotocol SoC 'netX90' to J-Trace and J-Link. Software engineers working with Hilscher's netX90 can now enjoy not only the high download speeds of the J-Link and advanced features, such as breakpoints in flash memory, but also the additional features brought to the table by J-Trace-PRO, such as live code profiling and coverage.
Embedded file system to maximise data integrity
It has been announced by SEGGER, that the RAID5 delivers data integrity in providing an additional layer of fail-safety on top of the CRC and/or error correction used by the underlying driver or storage medium. With RAID5, the storage device is divided into several partitions, one of which holds parity information allowing data recovery in case of a partition fail.
Software brings compression to smallest embedded computer systems
A new lossless compression algorithm tailored to resource constrained systems, boosting performance of embedded systems, has been announced by SEGGER, with the SMASHv2. The software reportedly allows both compression and decompression on any embedded system, in real time, even with no work RAM available.
Complete operating system for all IoT and non-IoT systems
SEGGER has introduced emPack, the complete operating system for IoT devices and embedded systems. It is delivered in source code for all 8-/16-/32-bit microcontrollers and microprocessors. emPack is optimised for high performance, and small memory footprint and easily fits onto typical microcontrollers without requiring expensive external memory, keeping the cost of the embedded computing system to a minimum.
Duo collaborate to provide customers with embedded software
Nuvoton Technology and SEGGER have announced their cooperation to make SEGGER’s emWin GUI library available for developers using Nuvoton’s microcontrollers. Product developers can now add more value to their end products by utilising the library and its tools to develop smooth, high quality Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs) quickly and efficiently.
New development solutions with advanced development tools
It has been announced by SEGGER that they are in support of Microchip's new SAML11 devices within their complete lineup of embedded development solutions. They started developing with SAML11 with SEGGER's IDE Embedded Studio, RTOS embOS, J-Link debug probes, and SystemView runtime visual analysis tool, which are all utilised in the ready to go evaluation package, which is free for educational and non-commercial use without limitation.
IoT and security components added to Embedded Studio PRO
SEGGER has expanded the scope of the Embedded Studio PRO software package by adding IoT, security and connectivity related software modules to the package. The newly added modules are SEGGER's IoT Toolkit, the security libraries emSSL, emSSH, emSecure and emCrypt as well as the communication stack emModbus and the compression algorithms emCompress.
RTOS certified for safety-critical applications
A certified version of embOS, SEGGER’s signature RTOS, is now available for safety-critical applications. Certified by TÜV SÜD, embOS-Safe complies with the functional safety standards IEC 61508 SIL 3 and IEC 62304 Class C (medical devices). The certification highlights the high quality standards of SEGGER’s development processes, now making it even easier to use embOS in safety-critical key market segments such as...
SEGGER opens new office in Silicon Valley
SEGGER Microcontroller has welcomed Axel Wolf as its new Sr. Staff Field Applications Engineer. Based out of Milpitas, California - in the heart of Silicon Valley - Wolf is available for support, on-site demonstrations, and site visits.
RTOS, stacks, middleware for RISC-V architecture
A new embOS port for the Open Source RISC-V CPU architecture has been announced by SEGGER. In addition to embOS, SEGGER offers emWin to construct user interfaces, emSSL, emSSH and emSecure to secure internet communications, cryprographic and security libraries for encryption, code signing and authentication (digital signatures), embOS/IP, emModbus, emUSB-Host and emUSB-Device communication stacks for Internet and industrial applications, and emLo...
