Ultra-low power applications require careful software validation to achieve long battery lifetimes and sensitive hardware needs electrical isolated test connections to prevent from interference voltages. Test automation and scripted testing need ways to interact with the unit under test, for example to stimulate input pins of the target application.
At embedded world, Arm introduces the new Keil ULINKplus debug/trace adapter with innovative features solving all these problems:
ULINKplus connects to Arm Cortex processors and offers multi-core debugging. It uses the CMSIS-DAP interface which is widely supported by many debuggers.
Versatile functions in a compact enclosure: ULINKplus
The 3-pin power measurement interface is 1 kV isolated. The µVision debugger captures the voltage and current input from the device and displays it in a built-in analyzer:
Live data from power measurement
The test I/O pins can be connected to the target system and allow you to control automated tests. The µVision gives you direct access to these I/O pins using a dialog or virtual debug registers that are accessible via a scripting language.

The Keil MDK demos at the embedded world trade show in Nuremberg (March 14th - 16th) will be using ULINKplus. Please visit us at Arm's booth in hall 3/stand 342.
ULINKplus will be available from May 2017.
