Texas Instruments recently introduced the XDS200 JTAG emulator. The TI XDS200 can be used for hardware debugging, algorithm development and programming on TI’s embedded processors. The JTAG emulators support a USB connection to the host computer and work with 32- and 64-bit versions of Microsoft Windows and Linux operating systems. The TI XDS200 JTAG emulator with USB is available now for $295.
TI XDS200 JTAG Emulator Features
- Improves performance and productivity over the entry-level, scan-based XDS100 JTAG emulator
- Larger array of debug capabilities, power levels and IEEE standards
- Supports 14-pin TI, 20-pin TI, 20-pin ARM and 10-pin ARM Cortex JTAG headers
- Emulation connect/disconnect, read/write memory, read registers, load program, run, halt, step, software and hardware breakpoint support and real-time mode
- Supports traditional IEEE 1149.1 (JTAG), IEEE 1149.7 (cJTAG) and Serial Wire Debug (SWD)
- Sustains a broad range of JTAG interface input/output power levels (+1.5v to +4.1V)
- Enables engineers to get started on TI embedded processor designs quickly and easily
- Facilitates software design on nearly all TI embedded processors
- Complete, robust tool chain for hardware debug and algorithm development with TI’s compatible Code Composer Studio IDE
The XDS200 is a JTAG emulator for TI embedded processors. It offers a good balance of cost and performance. It fits between the ultra low cost XDS100 and the high performance XDS560v2 products. The XDS200 supports both traditional IEEE 1149.1 (JTAG) and IEEE 1149.7 (cJTAG). The XDS200 features a 20-pin cJTAG header as well as adapters for 14-pin TI, 20-pin ARM and 10-pin ARM Cortex JTAG headers. Target board JTAG interface levels of +1.5v to +4.1v are supported.
The XDS200 is compatible with TI’s Code Composer Studio IDE v5.3 and newer, a patch is also available for v5.2. This combination gives the user a complete robust tool chain for hardware debug and algorithm development.
