NXP MCU-Link Pro SWD Debug Probe

Jointly developed by NXP and Embedded Artists, MCU-Link is a powerful and cost-effective debug probe.

The MCU-Link can be used seamlessly with the MCUXpresso IDE, and is also compatible with 3rd party IDEs that support the CMSIS-DAP or J-Link protocols.

MCU-Link Pro is based on NXP’s MCU-Link architecture, found in the MCU-Link low cost debug probe and on board evaluation boards, and runs the same firmware as all these implementations.

In addition to SWD debug, SWO profiling and a USB to UART bridge feature found in the base MCU-Link, the Pro model adds a J-Link LITE firmware option, energy measurement, analog signal monitor, USB to SPI and I2C bridging capability and an on-board LPC804 microcontroller for peripheral emulation.

The USB bridging feature is supported by the free, open source LIBUSBSIO host library from NXP.

MCU-Link Pro is based on the dual Arm® Cortex-M33® core LPC55S69 microcontroller, and features a high speed USB interface, providing high performance debug at low cost.

MCU-Link Pro is compatible with Windows 10, MacOS and Linux. The product comes with the necessary firmware installed, with free utilities provided to enable future firmware updates from NXP to be installed.
