New! ARM ulink plus

Hi everyone,

I would like to know which development boards are compatible with 10-pin Cortex ARM ulink plus debugger. I plan to use MDK lite version from Keil and also would be good to have some sample code to go with it.

Cheers
Sns

Just look at some dev boards that are relevant to your intended project, then RTFM to see if they have the 10-pin connector.
If the manual is unclear or doesn't say, contact the manufacturer and/or seller.

Even if they don't, making an adaptor shouldn't be too hard ...

Sample code is not specific to a particular debug probe!

Seems a bit bizarre to choose a $600 debug probe, and then just use the freebie Lite MDK version ... ?!

Hi,

Most of the old boards I see don't have support for the 10 pin connector. I do have a lpc board with SWD but it is not responding to the ulinkplus debugger.

Making a translator connector was really not my preferred solution but if its the last option then well..

What do you mean, "support for" ?

Old boards won't have the new, small 10-pin connector - because, as the name suggests, it is new!

http://infocenter.arm.com/help/topic/com.arm.doc.faqs/attached/13634/cortex_debug_connectors.pdf

I'm sure you could find a 3rd-party adaptor if you put your mind to it ...

(although, as you're paying $600 for the thing, you would have thought that Keil could manage to include an adaptor - as, for instance, Atmel do in their $99 unit!)

Although you have pre-assumed that I have bought the ulink debugger but I haven't. I have it on loan for trial period then we will decide in the project to buy it or not.

The aim simply is to use ulink pro debugger with Keil Lite and do some power measurements using the small current probes.
But many new boards from ST and other suppliers support their own ST debuggers or the segger ones and not the ARM ulink plus (or at least thats what I read in the tutorials).

By support means there is no option to connect the 10 pin debugger from ulink plus.

Yes I know that the 10 pin connector is pretty recent. And I have scanned the ARM website for all options.

If you see this link http://www2.keil.com/mdk5/ulink

The processors XC800, µPSD, XC166/XE166/XC2000 ; LPC950 (8051) ; Arm7, Arm9 are not supported by ulink pro debugger.

So the evaluation kits are pretty limited with this debugger it seems.

The issue is not with investing money as you have said above.

But that it should be clearly mentioned else one spends more time to look for a solution which one can afford.
