Programming of NAND Flash Devices in ARM and Cortex
– March 1, 2010 – Signum Systems Corp., a 30-year provider of development tools
for the embedded markets, has added programming of NAND flash memories to its
JTAGjet In-Circuit-Debugger (ICD) tools for ARM processors.
As a result, hardware and software engineers using the popular NAND devices will
benefit from being able to program and test their board-level applications in
seconds, using only the standard JTAG (IEEE 1149.1) port.
With the new NAND programming utility and the JTAGjet ICD from Signum Systems,
NAND programming can be performed in-system, right after board assembly without
the use of special boot loaders or pre-programmed parts (bare-metal boards).
With programming speeds reaching 600+ Kbytes/sec, the entire Linux boot loader
and kernel may be programmed in around 5 seconds.
Currently, Signum Systems’ NAND programming utility supports nearly all NAND
flash devices connected to the Freescale (i.MX27, i.MX31, i.MX51), Texas
Instruments DaVinci™ (DM355, DM356, DM644x, Jacinto2), OMAP3™ and Sitara™ and
Samsung S3C2440 devices.
The price for Flasher-NAND programming utility is $650 and JTAGjet emulators for
ARM prices start at $1,500 and include our flagship Chameleon Debugger™ for
testing and debugging of embedded applications.
Flasher-NAND utility and JTAGjet are available now. For more information, please
