    The R-Link has a closed proprietary protocol.  I don't think we have the enthusiasm or legal standing  to reverse engineer this.  And I don't want to enter into an NDA with Raisonance, even if they let us through the door.  Which i suspect they won't.

    So no, no time soon.

    So the ST Microelectronics ST-Link is the same thing as the Raisonance RLink?

    Just for info ST will release the STLINK protocol, i am a maintainer of openocd and they have given us permission to add support.
    It actually appears as a mass storage device, and only implements high level jtag cmds.

    ST were to release the protocol to us--I think they've forgotten, and it would probably change anyway.  I know you maintain OpenOCD.  ;-)  It was developed in China and then taken in-house somewhere in the bowels of ST.  I'm not sure how successful an adapter it is.  I also don't know why they felt they needed to implement one.  Sort of like Cypress doing their own adapter for PSoC5.

    Out of curiosity, you have the RLink supported--yet as far as I know the protocol is not public.  Which is interesting.

    The RLINK support was reversed - i had nothing todo with it :) It is very slow anyway and not useable.
    we sell quite a few, as they are very low cost (approx £15).

    The ST-Link and documentation is now available from Digikey. The $25 USD versus $300 for the CrossConnect is pretty compelling. Any chance of a second look?

    It is supported in the latest software as far as I recall. It's only compelling on price. What do you expect for $25?

    The ST-Link is supported (on Windows only) in the latest release. You'll need to download and install the STLink utility software from ST and then point CrossWorks at the STLinkUSBDriver.dll.
