mIDASLink Flash Programming

Is the mIDASLink much use without the FLASH programming license? Where do I get a licence, and how much does it cost? The documentation isn't clear about how you debug with or without FLASH programming, and I've had very little success with it.

    For debugging you do not need any license for the mIDAS-Link.  With the appropriate Keil or IAR tools this functionality is part of the debug process.  You only need a flash download license (J-Flash) if you wish to download on a system without debug tools.  You might do this in a production environment since the stand alone download software is cheaper and easier to use than the development tools.  See http://www.segger.com/cms/sales.html for more details.  If you have problems getting downloading to work then carefully go through your Debug and Utilities settings if using Keil or Debugger settings if using IAR.  In some versions of the tools the mIDAS-Link is chosen by selecting RDI while in other versions you should select J-Link.  The mIDAS-Link is identical to the J-Link when used on ADuC7xxx parts.
