Blackhawk Announces Availability of Its PCI-JTAG Emulator for Texas Instruments' 1 GHz DSPs
February 10, 2004 -- Blackhawk announced today the availability of a low cost, high-performance PCI- based JTAG Emulator for Texas Instruments' TMS320C64x 1 GHz DSPs.
The half-length PCI card features a variable TCK (timing clock) running up to 35 MHz and includes a flexible 5 1/2 foot multi-voltage cable/pod assembly. Based on TI's XDS560 emulation technology, the Blackhawk PCI Emulator (US$2,500.00 list) uses the 32-bit, on-chip PCI controller for increased speed and faster code download performance which is becoming increasingly important in applications such as video and imaging that have large code sizes. The PCI emulator is capable of data transfer speeds up to 6 times higher than other XDS510 emulators.
Blackhawk also offers a remote Ethernet client application that allows the PCI-JTAG Emulator to be remotely accessed over a TCP/IP network permitting central location of debug resources as well as drivers for Windows 2000 & XP.
Software compatibility with all versions of Code Composer Studio Integrated Development Environment, and a driver independent DLL developed by Blackhawk, assure existing and future device compatibility for legacy or new DSPs right out of the box with no upgrades required. The Blackhawk PCI-JTAG emulator supports TMS320, TMS470 (ARM) and OMAP families. Legacy support for Code Composer v4.1x and CCStudio v1.2 gives users access and compatibility to VC33, C20x and C24x. The PCI-JTAG Emulator is also compatible with the Code Composer Studio flash-burner utility.
The Blackhawk PCI-JTAG Emulator is available exclusively in the US and Canada through a network of industry resellers.
