Particle mesh + nrfjprog [solved]

I’m trying to program the Xenon board with nrfjprog, but cannot get it connected correctly. (Connection is standard SEGGER cable)

nrfjprog -f NRF52 --halt --log

gives me following feedback :slight_smile:

any idea how to make that work?

The same setup works using an nrf52840 dongle

Programming a particle user firmware or your own experiments with nrf?

I’m trying to set up a debugging environment, the same Error occurs using JLinkExe directly

Here is what I responded with on the associated ticket that @locomuco opened:

We don’t have any official support for the Segger J-Link at this time. We will be adding support for the Particle Debugger (CMSIS-DAP) in the future, but we don’t have any instructions for or experience with the J-Link.

Hi there,

looking at the schematics, it should not be a problem to connect with JLink, it’s basically a copy of the nrf52840 reference design. Is it possible, to check internally, if JTAG/SWD is supposed to work in general with these first prototype batch?

Just trying to figure out what’s the problem, since I spent already quite some time in debugging that…

Thanks

Matthias

Hi there,

it works fine with the Base JLink programmer, but not with the EDU version, solved for me…

Thanks anyways,

Matthias

Hi,

Can you explain how do you got this working?

I want to use SEGGER studio or similar in order to program Particle Boron, in the same way I work with Nordic Semiconductor nRF52840 Development Kit.

Thank you,
