  • [SOLVED] armv8 / iMX8M Support

    Hi

    as iMX8M armv8 boards are out for some time I'm looking for J-Link support. As a long time J-Link user I like to stay before looking into alternatives, but we need a reliable message when this will be available. I've reading about some activity in 2017 but cannot see it in the supported list nor any update about ETA of armv8 support. Please give us some info.

    Best
    Rolf

  • Hello Rolf,

    Yes, the beta will be publicly available.

    Will the upgrade for free?

    It will be free for all current high end J-Link/J-Trace debug probes of J-Link Ultra+ or higher.

    Current lower end J-Link probes will not be supported due to hardware limitations.
