NXP RT1064 board and JLink Debugging

Lawrence King

Dear All


On my business trip last week I was handed a i.MX RT1064 board, so today I tried to build and install the blinky progam for it. Unfortunately I am having problem getting Ninja flash or ninja debug to run.


When I started building at the cmake step I discovered my tools were out of date (zephyr-sdk-0.9.5-setup.run instead of zephyr-sdk-0.10.0-setup.run) no problem download the right tools and install them. Then my west install was out of date, again no problem, ‘west update’. Unfortunately it looks like I don’t have JLink support installed. What do I need to do to get that?


Curiously, when I look at the attached USB devices it says my board is ‘ARM DAPLink CIMSIS-DAP [0100]’ which is the same as my nrf52xx boards which run just fine with pyocd. Do I have a i.MX board with a ‘newer’ debugger that is ARM standard, or possibly the people that handed me the board updated it?


Of course I haven’t go to the step where the blinky program actually runs…


FYI - Here is the error message I get when I try ‘ninja flash’:
