Segger J-Link Programmer-Debugger
Most of modern boards rely on Cortex-M MCUs and Cortex-A MPUs from ARM and come with a programmer, but few of them feature a debugger. Notable exceptions include the LaunchPad line from Texas Instruments, the mbed-enable boards, and some recent boards like the Arduino.CC Zero or Arduino.ORG M0 Pro.
Problem is, each vendor promotes its own programmer/debugger. I wanted to avoid buying and dealing with as many debuggers as vendors, so I bought the Segger J-Link.
Not sure to understand the benefits of a programmer-debugger? Try first and explore this affordable albeit limited $5 solution based on the Seeed Xiao board.
