  • [SOLVED] Jlink 5V output

    segger.com/products/debug-prob…gy/interface-description/
    shows a 5 Volt output on pin 19 while there is no output at my Jlink on pin 19.
    Assume the 6 pin IC beside the uper left mounting hole is a voltage regulator,
    pin 2+3 have 5V while pin 6 (output ?) is 0Volt. Same behaviour at my JTrace.

    Is this a HW problem or do I have to enable the output in Ozone ?

  • Thanks, I never used this command to enable 5V but we have a target what uses the 5 V pin already successfull. Maybe a former colleague enabled the 5V and all other used without knowing about. Will the permanent setup survive a Firmware update what occurs frequently if changing the Jlink between a Win and Linux Host ?

    The POWER command works with both of my cables Jlink and Jtrace, while the VTREF command only works with Jtrace although Jlink purchase is much newer.

    Firmware: J-Link V9 compiled May 7 2021 16:26:12
    Hardware: V9.30

    Firmware: J-Trace PRO V1 Cortex-M compiled Jul 28 2021 10:11:34
    Hardware: V1.00

    Are there any HW version prerequisites to use the Jlink commands ?

  • Hi,

    Yes, the “power on perm” survives firmware updates.

    Your J-Link V9 is not really “newer” but only got a firmware update on May 7 2021. That does not make the model newer or more feature-rich. Some FW updates are bugfixes only.

    The J-Link V9 hardware version does not support the fixed VTREF command.
