SEGGER teams with iSystem for ARM Cortex J-link development tool
The winIDEA Open environment integrates support for SEGGER’s J-Link and a GNU compiler for controllers using the Cortex-M core. Extensive support as well as compliance with further compilers is available through an upgrade to the regular winIDEA version, and the companies plan to extend the integration of these tools over the next months with another variant that will also support the Cortex A and R derivatives.
“J-Link is a tool that allows development engineers to substantially reduce turn-around times in the software development process, for example, by ultra-fast flash downloads. With the cooperation of iSYSTEM and SEGGER, developers are offered a complete package comprised of a development environment and debug probe that even supports an unlimited amount of breakpoints in the microcontroller flash memory,” said Rolf Segger, CTO and founder of SEGGER.
“The integration of SEGGER J-Link debuggers in winIDEA is part of iSYSTEM’s Cortex initiative 2013. The strategy “iSYSTEM Goes Software” emphasizes our company’s ambition to follow this path even more intensely in future. As a result, we expect our development and test environment winIDEA/testIDEA, which is particularly popular in the automotive industry at this time, to become even more popular around the world,” said Erol Simsek, CEO of iSYSTEM.
