A Gift from Micro4you

About Micro4you

Micro4you studio is an established engineering design house in Thailand. Mirco4you was established in 2005. I had good connections with its CEO. We knew each other through; the famous forum for electrical and electronic engineering.

Micro4you sells cheap electronic components that proved to be useful for embedded engineers; especially these with low experience. Micro4you sells development boards, sensors, debuggers, peripheral boards …

Why Micro4you Did Send me the Gift?

After I sent Somboon Sopee, Micro4you CEO, the uCOS-II example I developed for Anzma, he tested it on the same board. The code ran successfully with no problems. He liked it and decided to send me gifts from his shop from a time to time. In return, he wants me to run examples using his stuff and publish them on my blog.

About the Gift

On March 2nd2010, I received a Colink ARM USB JTAG cable. This cable can be found here. Figure 1 shows this cable.

Colink is a small ARM Cortex M3 JTAG hardware debugging probe developed by CooCox. Colink directly supports CooCox CoDebugger and CooCox CoFlash. CooCox Colink integrates seamlessly into IAR Embedded Workbench, Keil RealView MDK.

What to Do with the Gift?

I guess the best example to demo this tool is to use. In the next few days, I will show my friends how to integrate Colink support within Keil RealView MDK and use it to download and debug the example I developed earlier.
