This extension allows you to manage device connections for Arm Cortex-M based microcontrollers, development boards and debug probes.
The Arm Device Manager extension works in combination with the Arm CMSIS csolution (Identifier: arm.cmsis-csolution) and Arm Embedded Debugger (Identifier: arm.embedded-debug) extensions to flash csolution projects to a device and do debugging.

Your device is now ready to be used for flashing and debugging.
