It also provides a regulated 3.3V to directly power the target device without addition power source by taking advantage of the USB power source. These feature turn the target device into mBed enable. It can be used as an ultra low cost solution to production programming. BSP is provide for use with Open Source CMSIS-DAP firmware from mBed.org which make it totally customizable. “
• Support both SWD & JTAG mode
• Debug compatibility with most IDE such as Keil, CrosWorks, Eclipse, etc..
• Onboard 3.3V regulator to power the target device
• UART to USB bridge for communication between target and PC
• mBed enabled the target device
• Firmware flashing by drap & drop simply by copying file over. Making it an ultra low cost solution for target production programming
• Flashing performance at 13.8KB/s with CrossWorks
• BSP is provided for Open Source CMSIS-DAP firmware from mBed.org. Adapt the firmware to your liking.
