Developer Dmitry based in Mountain View, California has created a new Cortex-M programming and debugging board in the form of the CortexProg. Supporting ZeroWireTrace, Gang-loading, MultiCore chip support, LUA-scripted and chip-support plugins the new development board is now available to back via Kickstarter with earlybird pledges available from $25 or £19.
If all goes well worldwide delivery is expected to take place during November 2018. Dmitry explains more about the CortexProg and its debugger features for Cortex-M microcontrollers. “It can serve as the only tool needed to reverse-engineer devices, create new designs, debug prototypes, program boards on production lines, or general for-fun hacking on devboards. CortexProg can read data from a microcontroller, write data into it, program flash, provide live tracing for printf-style debugging (ZeroWireTrace), and even allow complete GDB debugging.”
“The PC-side tool uses the HID transport to not need any drivers on any of the supported OSs: Linux, Windows, MacOS. The tool source is also available, so you can build yourself a copy for whatever other esoteric environment you might desire to run it on. CortexProg is the complete solution for all your ARM Cortex-M debuggng and programming needs.”
