Simplicity Debug Adapter Board


The Simplicity Debug Adapter Board plugs directly into the Debug Connector and the Simplicity Connector on a Wireless Starter Kit (WSTK) or a subset of Starter Kits (STK) and combines selected functionality from these two to a smaller footprint 10-pin connector which is more suitable for space constrained designs.

The ARM® Cortex® 10-pin Debug Connector follows the standard Cortex pin-put defined by ARM and allows the WSTKs and STKs to be used to debug hardware designs that use this connector.

Note: Packet Trace is only available on the Wireless STK Mainboards. MCU Starter Kits do not support Packet Trace
