arm kit + jtag + toolchain


Hi,

I need to get started on arm processor.(any 32 bit ones)
I really want to play freely with code, like burning it on flash and every thing.

Please suggest start to end solution.

1-A arm kit(simple and cheap)
2-jtag cable(can it be usb ?)
3-Gnu tools.

One more question, can I buy any arm development board from ebay, and as long as it support
jtag, it will give me options to burn/code on flash?

Thanks

Honestly, the decisions are up to you. I use the arduino for all of my products, in which it has a usb port, and you can use linux to develop on it. I recommend searching on google and picking out the best one to suit your needs. Cheers and good luck,

Josh

You could also check out Texas Instruments Beagleboard (OMAP 3) or Pandaboard (OMAP 4).

I installed urjtag on linux, it supports jlink cable

Code:
jlink         Segger/IAR J-Link, Atmel SAM-ICE and others.
And I bought arm processor kit with jlink jtag cable. Once its delivered we will see how it works.

Thanks every one.
