J-Link V8+ ARM USB-JTAG Adapter Emulator
Measured with J-Link Rev.5, ARM7 @ 50 MHz, 12MHz JTAG speed.
What you may do
You may use the information contained in this document to add support for the wide
spread SEGGER J-Link ARM emulator and OEM versions in open source software.
What you are not allowed to do
You are not allowed to use the information in this document to
build J-Link clones
build J-Link compatible emulators.
Some JTAG-related commands need an IRpre and DevicePos parameter. These values
describe the position of a device in the scan chain and the shift count to reach that
The diagram below shows a scan chain configuration sample with 2 devices connected
to the JTAG port.
The IRPre value is the total number of bits in the instruction registers of the devices
before the DUT counted from nearest device to TDO. The position can usually be seen
in the schematic; the IR len can be found in the manual supplied by the manufacturers
of the other devices.
ARM7 and ARM9 have an IR len of four.
For systems with just a single device, IRPre is 0.
For an example using the IRpre value please refer to the paragraph Scan chain exam-
ple on page 15.
