Segger announces support for the Arm Cortex-M85
Embedded system software and tool provider, Segger, has announced that its range, including the Embedded Studio integrated development environment (IDE), the J-Link debug probe, Ozone debugger and emPower operating system, now support the new Arm Cortex-M85.
For example, Renesas has demonstrated the industry’s first Arm Cortex-M85-based microcontroller, verified using J-Link debug probes, claimed to minimise bring-up time of the new system and to quickly develop a human machine interface (HMI) application based on emWin.
Segger’s J-Link for debug includes what are claimed to be record-breaking flashloaders, up to 3Mbytes per second RAM download speed and the ability to set an unlimited number of breakpoints in the flash memory of microcontrollers. Ozone is a multi-platform debugger and performance analyser for J-Link and J-Trace.
Embedded Studio is Seggers’s multi-platform IDE which includes all the tools and features a developer needs for professional embedded C and C++ programming and development. It comes with Segger’s highly optimised emRun runtime and emFloat floating point libraries, as well as Segger’s smart Linker. All of these have been developed from the ground up specifically for resource-constrained embedded systems, said Segger.
Segger’s emPower OS provides a real time operating system (RTOS) with software libraries including communication, security, data compression and storage and user interface software. The embedded graphics library, emWim, enables the creation of efficient graphical user interfaces, added the company.
Segger Microcontroller has three decades of experience in embedded systems, producing RTOS and software libraries, J-Link and J-Trace debug and trace probes, Flasher in-system pProgrammers and software development tools.
The company was founded by Rolf Segger in 1992 and is privately held. There is a US office in the Boston area of North America and branch operations in Silicon Valley, Shanghai and the UK, as well as distributors on most continents.
