This article describes specifics for the GigaDevice GD32E503R-START evaluation board.
- J-Link software V6.87b or later
Preparing for J-Link
The GD32E503R-START comes with a SWD debug connector. Therefore, you can use a JTAG connector with jumper cables to connect your J-Link with the board. The following guide will describe how the GD32E503R-START evaluation board can be connected to your J-Link.
- Populate the the pin header JP4
- Connect the board with jumping wires to your J-Link (see table below)
For information about the J-Link pinout please refer to the following page: J-Link SWD pinout.
|J-Link 20 pin debug interface||Pin on evaluation board|
|Pin 1 (VTref)||V|
|Pin 4 (GND)||G|
|Pin 7 (SWDIO)||IO|
|Pin 9 (SWCLK)||CK|
The result should be looking like this:
- Power the board via the USB port (CN100).
- Verify the Connection with e.g. J-Link Commander. The output should look as follows:
The following example project was created with the SEGGER Embedded Studio project wizard and runs out-of-the-box on the GigaDevice GD32E503R-START. It is a simple blinky application which toggles LED1. The application is linked into the internal flash.
