Segger Microcontroller (Hilden, Germany) offers a package consisting of IDE, hardware and middleware elements, in the form of its Embedded Studio PRO platform combines the company's Embedded Studio development environment, along with a selection of its key embedded software components, a J-Link PLUS debug probe, and an emPower evaluation board.

Segger Embedded Studio (launched in 2015) is a streamlined IDE for ARM-based microcontrollers. It is designed to provide all tools needed for professional embedded development. Supporting all major operating systems (Windows, Mac OS X and Linux), it embodies source code editing, compiling and debug functionality for embedded applications.

Further components from Segger’s portfolio of middleware that are incorporated in the Embedded Studio PRO package include the embOS high-performance RTOS with zero latency, the emFile robust file management system, the emWin GUI for any application that operates with a graphical LCD, the embOS/IP TCP/IP stack for Internet connectivity and the emUSB USB stack with host and target side support.

The package also contains a J-Link PLUS debug probe, with J-Flash software and features such as unlimited flash breakpoints, SystemView analysis tool and Monitor Mode function. This is complemented by emPower, Segger’s demonstrator board, which is designed to enhance software evaluation, prototyping and proof of concept. Embedded Studio PRO is supplied with sample projects to ensure a quick and easy start (including one for the emPower board which contains all the necessary middleware components).

Segger Embedded Studio package is sold as a Single Developer Licence for unlimited products on all Cortex-M cores, at a price of €9,980.
