What are the Limitations when using the Segger J-Link Debugger with QSPI Flash Breakpoints?

Latest Updated:10/04/2016

Question:

What are the limitations when using the Segger J-Link debugger with QSPI Flash breakpoints?

Answer:

Code located in QSPI flash can be debugged just as if it were located in internal flash. However it is not possible to set or clear breakpoints while running the code in QSPI flash if it is running in XIP mode.

It is possible to set or clear breakpoints in QSPI flash outside of a debug session and then run it in XIP mode.

It is also possible to set or clear breakpoints while running the code in QSPI flash if it is not running in XIP mode.
