SEGGER J-Link adds full support for Renesas’ FINE Interface

Hilden, Germany – August 2nd, 2013 SEGGER has added support for Renesas’ singlewire debug interface FINE to the whole J-Link family of debug probes. The debug interface FINE is used by the Renesas devices RX100, RX200 and RX63x. J-Link is the only silicon vendor independent debug probe in the market capable of connecting to a device with the FINE-interface. “Support for Renesas’ FINE-interface makes J-Link even more versatile. It puts the full J-Link family yet another step ahead of the competition”, says Ivo Geilenbruegge, Managing Director of SEGGER. “We are making sure our complete line of J-Link debug probes support all major tool vendors, CPU architectures and target interfaces. Being the first vendor supporting Renesas’ single-wire debug interface is just one more point of proof”, says Alexander Gruener, Product Manager for J-Link. “SEGGER’s development team continues to impress us with the short development time needed when adapting to new targets. Their support for the FINE-interface significantly improves the eco-system for our RX-series. The SEGGER JLINK FINE-interface is now accessible for all popular RX tool-chains on the market, including the free of charge e2studio
eclipse based development environment,” says David Noverraz, MCU Applications and Tools manager for Renesas Europe.
