Low cost J-Link debug tool focuses on the educational sector

June 07, 2017 // By Julien Happich
In another move to address demands from the educational community for professional but low-cost development tools, Segger introduces the J-Link EDU mini.

Priced at only $18, J-Link EDU mini offers all of the advanced features associated with a commercial J-Link solution including the use of Segger's IDE Embedded Studio, Ozone Debugger and GDB Server, as well as other powerful visualization tools, such as SystemView and J-Scope.

The only limitations are on the permitted use for educational purposes, speed of the probe (up to 200 kByte/sec) and the usage for Cortex-M targets via the SWD interface.

Any tool or IDE that supports J-Link debug probes will simply work with J-Link EDU mini. This covers tools running under Windows, Linux and MacOS X. Regardless of the development environment, the J-Link EDU mini is able to download directly into Flash memory and debug programs executing in Flash or RAM. It even comes with the ability to set an unlimited number of breakpoints in Flash memory. At only 50x18mm, its compact form factor saves valuable desk space.
