Debug probes from Segger is wireless for monitoring from afar
USB and Wi-Fi interfaces are included in the J-Link WiFi, the latest member of the J-Link family of debug probes from Segger.
The company says that any software compatible with J-Link can use the J-Link WiFi model.
Removing the physical connection between J-Link and the host opens up opportunities for monitoring and debugging robots, vehicles, drones or other devices with moving parts. They can be monitored or debugged on the move or from a distance. Physical disconnection provides electrical isolation and J-Link over Wi-Fi accesses air-sealed environments.
The J-Link WiFi comes with Ozone, J-Flash, Monitor mode debugging, and unlimited flash breakpoints. It delivers a high download and debug speed that is not possible with other options such as Bluetooth.
The probe was created in response to customers’ requests, who, when using the J-Link Pro in combination with a Wi-Fi bridge, says Alex Grüner, CTO at Segger. “Now . . . this new model, [makes] J-Link debugging easily available for mobile applications. Customers can now do wireless debugging with the legendary speed and reliability of J-Link.”
Like the J-Link Pro, the J-Link WiFi is supplied with a built-in web server and can be accessed from any computer on the network or even outside using the J-Link Remote server.
