Blackhawk is a leader in the design of DSP hardware and software development tools. Blackhawk was the first company to provide a USB JTAG Emulator for Texas Instruments DSPs and is a member of the Texas Instruments Third Party Developers Network.
Blackhawk USB560v2 System Trace Emulator is based on the XDS560v2 system trace reference design from Texas Instruments. The XDS560v2 is the next-generation of the high-performance XDS560-class technology. The compact USB560v2 includes a bus-powered, high-speed USB 2.0 host interface with bi-color state and activity LEDs and a flexible, ribbon-ized coax JTAG cable. The JTAG cable comes with a native MIPI 60 connection and the unit ships with three pin converters for connection to target boards with 14-pin TI, 20-pin compact TI, and 20-pin ARM headers. Along with traditional JTAG IEEE 1149.1, the USB560v2 also includes support for IEEE 1149.7 and system trace (STM), an interface on the TI heterogeneous multi-core (ARM + DSP) devices.
Blackhawk USB510W Wireless JTAG Emulator is the first of its kind wireless JTAG emulator for Texas Instruments DSPs. It has an embedded 802.11 wireless transceiver and requires no hard connection to a PC in order to debug using Code Composer Studio™. The major benefit of this capability is to completely isolate the PC from the target, therefore eliminating the chance for high-voltage damage of test components. This protects the target board, PC, and emulator from voltage spikes and the absence of a common ground plane. Configuration of the USB510W is accomplished via the USB port in the same fashion as setting up a wireless router. Or the USB510W can be used wirelessly right out of the box using the default settings suitable for most WiFi networks. The USB510W can also be used for debugging via the high-speed USB port.
Blackhawk USB510 JTAG Emulator is a high-performance JTAG emulator for Texas Instruments TMS320, TMS470 (ARM), and OMAP families. The credit card-sized Blackhawk USB510 JTAG Emulator is the most compact and lightweight JTAG emulator available. The USB bus-powered design requires no external power source, making for an ultra-compact unit that is very affordable. The high-speed USB 2.0 port operates at 480 Mbits/second and is Plug n' Play compatible with Windows 98/ME/2000/XP. Software compatibility with all versions of Code Composer and Code Composer Studio--including v2.2 and above, and a driver independent DLL developed by Blackhawk, assures existing and future device compatibility for legacy or new DSPs right out of the box, with no upgrades required. The Blackhawk USB510 includes legacy support for Code Composer v4.1x, and CCStudio v1.2 gives users access and compatibility to VC33, C20x, and C24x. The USB510 JTAG Emulator is also compatible with Code Composer Studio™ Flash-burner utility.
The Blackhawk XDS560v2 System Trace Emulator is is a development tool for Texas Instruments DSPs that is based on the TI XDS560v2 JTAG emulator reference design. The Blackhawk XDS560v2 emulator includes both high-speed USB 2.0 and 10/100Mbit Ethernet host interfaces, multi-color state and activity LEDs and a flexible ribbonized coax JTAG cable. The Blackhawk XDS560v2 offers a power over Ethernet option, a power over USB only option, and additional dedicated LEDs for power and USB. Blackhawk also offers the USB560BP XDS560-class emulator that supports the advanced capabilities of the latest TI DSPs.
The Blackhawk USB100 controller for Texas Instruments DSPs provides additional features and performance not found in other XDS100 emulators. The Blackhawk USB100 controller provides faster code downloads and code stepping by using a high-speed USB2.0 port instead of slower USB1.x (12 Mb/s) implementations. The USB100 is supported by TI TMS320C28x 32-bit controllers, TMS320C54x power-efficient DSPs, TMS320C55x fixed-point DSPs, and TMS320C674x high performance DSPs. This Blackhawk controller requires no external power source and can support most of the basic features of higher priced emulators without requiring additional drivers when installed using CCS V3.3 SR12 and CCS V3.3 for C2000 DSK Version (version 126.96.36.199 or newer). The device includes 1.8/3.3 volt device I/O support and features standard 2x7 and cTI JTAG header.
The Blackhawk USB2000 Controller is designed for the unique requirements of developing applications using Texas Instruments C2000 DSPs. The Blackhawk USB2000 is a small and lightweight third-generation controller that is powered directly from a PC's USB port and requires no external power source This Blackhawk device features a Plug 'n' Play USB Host Interface, 3.3/5.0 V device I/O support, and a bi-color status LED (red/green). The USB2000 Controller also offers Code Composer Studio v3.3 support, a Blackhawk FlashBurn utility add-on, and optional isolation adapter.
The Blackhawk USB510L JTAG Emulator for Texas Instruments DSPs raises the standards for portability, reliability, and ease of installation. The full-featured Blackhawk USB510L Emulator works with TI's TMS320, TMS470 (ARM), DaVinci, and OMAP families, requires no power source except for a USB connection, and is a faster, easier, and cost-effective replacement for older and less-sophisticated parallel port and PCMCIA emulators. The USB510L provides an XDS510™-class controller, Plug 'n' Play USB Host Interface, and Blackhawk FlashBurn utility and Blackhawk Isolation Adapter optional add-ons.
