New Products – February 2018

Hello and welcome back to a New Products post. This time we have a new JTAG/SWD probe, a white-on-black OLED display and some handy 2-pin JST-type wires.



Let’s start with the new Artekit AK-CMSIS-DAP JTAG/SWD probe. This is a very low-cost board that let’s you debug and flash any ARM Cortex microcontroller. It is based on the ARM CMSIS-DAP standard (a.k.a DAPLink) and it’s compatible with KEIL uVision, IAR Embedded Workbench and OpenOCD.

The board comes with a standard 20-pin JTAG connector, supporting full JTAG devices and also the reduced SWD (Serial Wire Debug) interface for smaller microcontrollers like the Cortex M0. The communication with the PC/Mac happens through USB, and the good news is that you don’t need any driver, since the CMSIS-DAP protocol travels on top of the USB HID protocol.

Also, the AK-CMSIS-DAP has buffered input/output signals: this means that it will adapt to the voltage of your target, being it 3.3V or 5V.

We have prepared a user guide with everything you need to know to get started right away!

SSD1306 128×64 OLED Display

SSD1306 128×64 OLED Display

This is a 0.96″ monochrome OLED display with 128×64 (white) pixels based on the SSD1306 display driver. It is very easy to use and there are a lot of libraries and examples for it on the web.

The display has a 160 degrees viewing angle, and supports SPI and I2C protocols. By using the CS pin you can drive several of these using a single bus.

The board comes as shown in the pictures, with pin headers already soldered in.

JST-Type 2-pin Wires with Male/Female Connectors

JST-Type 2-pin Wires with Male/Female Connectors

These are two 20cm, 24 AWG wires, one with a female 2-pin JST-type connector and the other with a male 2-pin JST-type connector. The pin pitch in the connectors is 2mm.

Use it with our PropBoard  to connect your batteries, buttons and LEDs.
