Segger has announced the J-Link WiFi, a new member of the J-Link family of debug probes. With USB and Wi-Fi interfaces, any software compatible with J-Link can easily use the new model.
Removing the physical connection between J-Link and the host opens up a world of new possibilities: A robot, vehicle, drone, or other devices with moving parts can be monitored or debugged on the move or from a distance. Physical disconnection provides the ultimate in electrical isolation where desired, and J-Link over Wi-Fi is perfect for accessing 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 isn’t possible with other options such as Bluetooth.
“For years we have had customers using our J-Link PRO in combination with a Wi-Fi bridge,” says Alex Grüner, CTO at SEGGER. “Now, created by popular demand, we are very excited to release this new model, making J-Link debugging easily available for mobile applications. Customers can now do wireless debugging with the legendary speed and reliability of J-Link.”
Just like the J-Link PRO, it comes 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.
