The Dronecode Probe is a generic JTAG/SWD + UART console adapter compatible with most ARM Cortex-based designs and in particular with hardware maintained by the Dronecode project. It is supported on all major operating systems (Windows, Linux, and Mac OS). A variety of connectors on the Dronecode Probe allow for instant hardware connectivity to most of the Dronecode-compliant hardware designs, eliminating the need for intermediary boards, adapters, soldering and crimping.
The debugger comes with a DCD-M cable included.
More information and usage instructions are published on the Zubax Knowledge Base.Based off of the open-source Black Magic Probe, the DroneCode Probe offers the following added value:
- Firmware compatible to the Black Magic probe
- Does not require OpenOCD or other software to run GDB on Windows, Linux or Mac OS
- Better setup/usage experience compared to other JTAG probes
- Integrated 3.3V serial adapter for console access
- Solder-free support for common DroneCode cabling options:
- ARM Mini 10 position standard header
- DCD-M: DroneCode Debug connector, medium
- STMicroelectronics STM32 series
- Microchip/Atmel SAM series
- NXP LPC series
- Freescale Kinetis
- Texas Instruments LM/TM series
- Silicon Labs EFM32/EZR32
- Xilinx Zynq-7000
- Broadcom BCM2836
See the Black Magic Probe homepage for the full list of supported targets.
- Embedded GDB server on the device. No host-side driver needed (this is unlike, for example, OpenOCD).
- Loading the application into flash or RAM.
- Real-time execution and single-stepping.
- Hardware-assisted breakpoints and read/write/access watchpoints.
- Software breakpoints when executing from RAM.
- Simple integration with development tools and IDE.
- Connectors are compatible with the Dronecode Autopilot Connector Standard.
- Optional +3.3 V power supply delivery to the target.
