The J-Link software in the new package runs natively on ARM processors, ensuring that no performance or power is lost in emulation. Using J-Link and J-Trace with Windows on ARM looks and feels the same as working on an Intel/AMD machine.

The new package contains the same components as the J-Link suite of software available for other operating systems and provides identical functionality. This includes command-line programs as well as GUI tools such as J-Flash, J-Flash SPI, J-Scope, the J-Link Configurator and the GUI version of the Segger GDB Server.

“Segger products have been multi-platform for many years,” said Rolf Segger, founder of Segger. “J-Link software now runs on any combination of Linux, macOS and Windows on Intel/AMD or Arm. Our Embedded Experts do an outstanding job of swiftly adapting to emerging trends and technology. They have proven once again that SEGGER products are truly future-proof. Ease of use, robustness, unparalleled performance, direct download into flash memory, an unlimited number of breakpoints in flash memory, and compatibility with all popular environments, just to name a few, make J-Link an unbeatable choice.”

The company tested J-Link software with Windows on ARM natively using a Microsoft Surface tablet and a Raspberry Pi, as well as in a virtual machine on an ARM-powered M1 Mac.

Features such as Real-Time Transfer (RTT) for interactive user I/O in embedded applications and High Speed Sampling (HSS) for data acquisition allow J-Link to be a key component of third-party utilities that provide real-time system tracing and inspection.
