This software version targets applications that operate with Raspberry Pi and other single board computing (SBC) platforms.

SEGGER introduced a new version of the company’s J-Link software specifically for Linux Arm. This software version targets applications that operate with Raspberry Pi and other single board computing (SBC) platforms. It further targets these devices and the full feature set established with Windows, macOS, and Linux x86 versions.

Features include high-speed download into Flash memory, unlimited breakpoints, and J-Link GDB servers.

Available for both 32-bit and 64-bit Arm Linux, it takes advantage of the 64-bit CPU and all memory available within the system.

Liviu Ionescu, Developer of the Open-Source Eclipse Embedded CDT project said in a press release, "Although it seems very unusual, even unlikely, it is now possible to use a small Raspberry Pi 4 single board computer with the Eclipse for Embedded C/C++ Developers package and the additional xPack binary tools, plus SEGGER's J-Link debug probe and J-Link software, to create projects, build them and run debug sessions."
