The test release of Embedded Studio, SEGGER’s cross-platform IDE, can now debug software on evaluation boards equipped with a DAP-Link (CMSIS-DAP) debug interface. This new feature is included in the ARM and Cortex-M editions on all supported host platforms: Windows and Linux 64- and 32-bit, as well as macOS (including Catalina). The software to access the DAP-Link is based on the proven J-Link software. It can download directly into flash memory, and is optimized for both stability and performance.
While an on-board J-Link delivers superior features and performance, DAP-Link is used on a number of low-cost evaluation boards. Embedded Studio now makes using these boards easy. It simply works, out of the box, hassle-free. One download and install is all it takes.
“Knowing boards with DAP-Link are commonly used by hobbyists and students, we are excited to give them access to our professional IDE and software libraries,” says Johannes Lask, Product Manager for Embedded Studio at SEGGER. “This also enables SEGGER and others to create evaluation software projects for Embedded Studio and these boards, in line with our ‘It simply works!’ philosophy. I believe that Embedded Studio, due to its ease of use and easy licensing, is the best choice for silicon vendors to make reference projects and SDKs available.”
Embedded Studio can be downloaded without registration from http://www.segger.com
