Real-time emulator debugs TI embedded processors
Test & Measurement World Staff - August 16, 2012
Operating in conjunction with Texas Instruments’ Code Composer Studio, the XDS560 USB-Plus emulator from GAO Embedded performs real-time, high-speed data exchange and downloading for debugging TI’s embedded processors. This USB plug-and-play emulator supports multiple-CPU debugging of the same or different types of processors and automatically detects power loss and cable disconnections.
In addition to a programmable TCK frequency, the XDS560 USB-Plus has a dynamic operating voltage range of 1.0 V to 5.0 V and a real-time event-sequence server that does not interrupt operation. It offers a download speed of 500 kbps, RTDX (Real Time Data Exchange) speed of over 2 Mbytes/s, and simple connection without jumpers and switch settings. The device is equipped with a TI standard 14/20-pin DSP JTAG port, a 14/20-pin JTAG header adapter, and a USB 2.0 interface.
TI processor families supported by the XDS560 USB-Plus emulator include OMAP application processors, DaVinci digital media processors, C6000 high-performance DSPs, C5000 low-power DSPs, C2000 microcontrollers, and TMS470 ARM-based microcontrollers. The emulator runs under Windows 98, 2000, XP, and Vista and uses an external phase-locked loop.
