Jointly developed by NXP and Embedded Artists, the MCU-Link Pro is a fully featured debug probe that can be used with MCUXpresso IDE and 3rd party IDEs that support CMSIS-DAP and/or J-Link protocols. MCU-Link Pro is based on NXP’s MCU-Link architecture, found in the MCU-Link low cost debug probe and on board evaluation boards, and runs the same firmware as all these implementations. In addition to SWD debug, SWO profiling and a USB to UART bridge features (VCOM) found in the base MCU-Link, the Pro model adds a J-Link LITE firmware option, energy measurement, analog signal monitor, USB to SPI and I2C bridging capability and an on-board LPC804 for peripheral emulation. MCU-Link Pro is based on the dual Arm® Cortex-M33® core LPC55S69 microcontroller, and features a high speed USB interface, providing high performance debug at low cost.
The USB bridging feature is supported by the free LIBUSBSIO host library from NXP.
MCU-Link Pro is compatible with Windows 10, MacOS and Linux. The product comes with the necessary firmware installed, with free utilities provided to enable future firmware updates from NXP to be installed.
The order code for this board is MCU-LINK-PRO.
