Macraigor Systems offers free debug tool for ARM Cortex-M3
Macraigors JTAG interface devices are immediately available for use with the ARM Cortex-M3 based cores as well as other ARM family devices including ARM 7, ARM 9, ARM 11, Freescales iMX series, XScale, and others.
Processors are becoming more sophisticated with higher bus speeds and integrated peripherals. Debugging via classic methods, such as In-Circuit Emulators and ROM monitors, does not hold up to the rigors of real-time system test and debug on these next-generation processors. As processors become more complex, on-chip debug resources have been added to aid hardware and software designers. The interface to these on-chip resources is where Macraigor Systems excels. Via a choice of communication channels, a host debugger communicates with a Macraigor Systems device and then to the target processor. Since there is no need for any resident code, this debug method is available for hardware initialization and debug as well as Flash EEPROM programming, kernel, driver, and application software debug. Macraigor Systems offers a host based application that allows programming of Flash EEPROM via the JTAG connection.
Macraigor Systems is committed to providing hardware/software JTAG debug interface solutions for all current and future ARM technology-based processors, said managing partner James MacGregor.
Pricing & Availability
