Hello,

 

currently 90% of my work is done on Atmel/Microchip SAM MCUs so i am working whit Atmel-ICE probe tool. I also do some light works whit ST MCUs, but then i just buy the development board, since it is so cheap, i just incorporate whole board in the final product. 

 

Now i am planning to expand to other manufacturers (NXP, TI, etc.) and i am wondering what is most universally supported probe. I have seen J-link from Segger being used a lot. Also my price range is under 200€. Thanks for suggestions in advance. 

This topic has a solution.

+1 on J-link

 

If you have an STM32 Nucleo board to spare, see https://www.segger.com/products/...

Thanks for infos. Interesting article on converting Nucleo to J-link, but i will just buy the official one. I will get J-Link, but i am deciding between EDU(57€ on Farnell) and BASE(362€ on Farnell) model. But according to the official Segger compare site (https://www.segger.com/products/...), as far as i see there is no difference(except color) in performance?? So EDU is intended for educational and non commercial use? So if i buy that model and use it for my business, can there be any liability issues or compatibilty or something else? If this is the case, i really will jsut change Nucleo board to J-link, instead of getting BASE one.

That is the problem, only thing i coudl found about EDU version is that has limited customer support and nothing else.

Look at the Terms and Conditions.
.
I have an EDU. I am fairly certain that I had to agree before purchase.
I have not used it for years.
There is a model comparison chart somewhere.
They all do the basic functions.
The more expensive models have more bells and whistles.

I didnt had any terms and conditions to accept. I just added it in basket on Amazon whit a bunch of other stuff and payed whit paypal. Yes, i added the link to model chart few posts back up and according to it, there is 0 difference between EDU and BASE model. Yes, the more expensive ones do have unlimited flash poitns, ehternet,.. etc. The EDU has ALL the features i need, but i dont want to get into any legal problems, since now i started to develop products for real clients who pay me to develop final product. I dont want one of the to call me in 6months, telling me they cant certificate their product, because the software was developed on EDU hardware, or something similar.

? It's easy enough to find the product page for the EDU version where this is under Limitations:

Licensing and Support

  • J-Link EDU may only be used for non-commercial purposes. J-Link EDU does not include support.
