armv8 / iMX8M Support

Hi

as iMX8M armv8 boards are out for some time I'm looking for J-Link support. As a long time J-Link user I like to stay before looking into alternatives, but we need a reliable message when this will be available. I've reading about some activity in 2017 but cannot see it in the supported list nor any update about ETA of armv8 support. Please give us some info.

Best
Rolf

Will the upgrade for free?

It will be free for all current high end J-Link/J-Trace debug probes of J-Link Ultra+ or higher.

Current lower end J-Link probes will not be supported due to hardware limitations.
An overview can be found on our website: https://www.segger.com/products/debug-pr…model-overview/

Best regards,
Nino
