SEGGER adds J-Link support for new Renesas RX 32-bit MCU

J-Link allows fast download and setting an unlimited number of breakpoints in RAM and internal flash memory. This complements the 8 hardware event breakpoints on theRX600. All features of the RX family, such as the advanced on-chip trace logic with buffer and real-time communication methods are supported. The J-Link software for RX is compatible to Renesas´ E1 emulator and therefore supports both the IAR Embedded Workbench as well as the HEW environment. “We are very excited about the opportunity to provide the first independent emulator for Renesas RX. We believe that RX is going to be a very successful family of microcontrollers due to the very efficient core, which achieves more Mips/MHz than competing architectures and due to Renesas’ unique Monos Flash technology, allowing zero wait state operation up to 100MHz,” says Dirk Akemann, Marketing Manager at SEGGER.
