iSYSTEM Embedded Software Development and Test Environment Now Also Available for SEGGER J-Link

(PresseBox) (Schwabhausen, ) Schwabhausen-based iSYSTEM AG, today presents a new version of iSYSTEM's development and test environment winIDEA called winIDEA Open2) with full support of the SEGGER J-Link1) debug probe.

iSYSTEM responds to the strong growth of the Cortex microcontroller market, offering customers a simple and cost-efficient entry into the Cortex embedded world.

This is accomplished with the free version called winIDEA Open with integrated J-Link support. A GNU compiler for Cortex-M is also supplied. An unlimited number of flash breakpoints is available with certain J-Link Debug probes. Extensive technical support as well as the use of additional compilers is available through an upgrade to a regular winIDEA version; the upgrade price is 1,000.- EUR net.

"The integration of SEGGER J-Link debuggers in winIDEA is part of iSYSTEM's Cortex initiative 2013. The strategy "iSYSTEM Goes Software" emphasizes our company's ambition to follow this path even more intensely in future. As a result, we expect our development and test environment winIDEA/testIDEA, which is particularly popular in the automotive industry at this time, to become even more popular around the world," says iSYSTEM CEO Erol Simsek.

"J-Link is a tool that allows development engineers to substantially reduce turn-around times in the software development process, for example, by ultra-fast flash downloads. With the cooperation of iSYSTEM and SEGGER, developers are offered a complete package comprised of a development environment and debug," explains Rolf Segger, CTO and founder of SEGGER Microcontroller GmbH & Co.KG.

The companies plan to extend the integration of these tools over the next months and launch another license variant of winIDEA for SEGGER's J-Link that will also support the Cortex A and R derivatives besides Cortex M.
