SEGGER’s Advanced Debug Technology Made Available for Zilog’s ZNEO32! Family



SEGGER has introduced J-Link support for Zilog’s ZNEO32! Cortex-M3 based family of MCUs. This includes support for debug, and flash programming. Production line programming is also available via the SEGGER Flasher family.

Projects using the ZNEO32! MCUs can now take advantage of the proven reliability and industry-leading performance of SEGGER’s highly popular J-Link debug technology, leading to faster and more efficient developments cycles.

J-Link is supported in all major IDE’s; IAR EWARM, Keil MDK, Rowley Crossworks, SEGGER’s own Embedded Studio and other Eclipse/GDB based offerings. This gives Zilog developers flexibility in their choice of IDE’s without compromising on the superior download speed to RAM and Flash that J-Link technology offers.

“I am very pleased to announce J-Link support for this Zilog MCU family. ZNEO32! Developers now have the best debugger at hand to create their next generation motor control products,” says Alex Grüner, CTO of SEGGER.

“Our ZNEO32! is a perfect solution for motor applications. With SEGGER’s J-Link support of this high performance, low-power Cortex-M3 core, development from almost any IDE is made easy. SEGGER’s Embedded Studio and J-Link are a perfect match to our powerful Z32F384 Evaluation Kit,” said Tom Ormiston, Tools Manager, Zilog.

About J-Link
The SEGGER J-Link is the most popular family of debug probes on the market. It is tool chain independent and works with free GDB-based tool chains such as Embedded Studio, and Eclipse, as well as commercial IDEs from: Atmel, Atollic, Coocox, Cosmic, Freescale, IAR, KEIL, Mentor Graphics, Microchip, Python, Rowley, Renesas, Tasking and others. With the J-Link family, investments in the debug probe are preserved when changing compiler or even CPU architecture.

J-Link supports multiple CPU families, such as ARM 7, 9, 11, Cortex-M, Cortex-R, Cortex-A as well as Renesas RX100, RX200, RX600 and Microchip PIC32; there is no need to buy a new J-Link or new license when switching to a different yet supported CPU family or tool-chain. SEGGER is also continuously adding support for additional cores, which in most cases, only requires a software/firmware update. Unlimited free updates are included with even the baseline model of the J-Link family. SEGGER is excited to continue advanced development of its cutting edge embedded tool solutions to be utilized with pretty much any development environment you choose. All J-Links are fully compatible to each other, so an upgrade from a lower-end model to a higher-end model is a matter of a simple
plug-and-play.

About SEGGER
SEGGER Microcontroller develops and distributes hardware and software development tools as well as software components for embedded systems. An “embedded system” is one in which a microprocessor and associated components are incorporated into a device helping to accomplish difficult and complex tasks in products such as cell phones, medical instruments, instrument clusters,
measurement instruments, satellite radios, digital cameras etc.

SEGGER was founded in 1997, is privately held, and is growing steadily. Based in Hilden with distributors in all continents and a local office in Massachusetts, SEGGER offers its full product range worldwide.

SEGGER software products include: embOS (RTOS), emWin (GUI), emFile (File System), emUSB (USB host and device stack) and embOS/IP (TCP/IP stack). With emSecure, a unique software to generate and verify digital signatures, and the TLSsolution emSSL, SEGGER is also offering software for the growing field of data and product security.

With the experience in programming efficiently on embedded systems, SEGGER created highly integrated, cost-effective programming and development tools, such as the Flasher (stand-alone flash programmer) and the industry leading J-Link/J-Trace emulator.

SEGGER cuts software development time for embedded applications by offering affordable, high quality, flexible and easy-to-use tools and software components allowing developers to focus on their applications. Find out more at www.segger.com
