Blackhawk USB100v2 JTAG Emulator

The Blackhawk USB100v2-ARM controller is a very low-cost controller for basic debugging of Texas Instruments DSPs. Requiring no external power source, the USB100v2-ARM can support most of the basic features of higher priced emulators and requires no additional drivers when installed using CCS v4 or later.

This model has 10-pin and 20-pin ARM JTAG Connections.
For 14-pin TI and 20-pin cTI JTAG connections see our Model D.


Pricing & Availability


The USB100v2-ARM is a TI XDS100v2-compatible emulator fully supported under CCS v4 and future Texas Instruments roadmap software development environments. Blackhawk’s USB100v2-ARM provides additional features and performance not found in other XDS100v1 emulators. The USB100v2-ARM provides for faster code downloads and assembly code stepping in that the USB100v2 uses a high-speed USB2.0 (480 Mb/s) port instead of slower USB1.x (12 Mb/s) implementations.

The Blackhawk USB100v2-ARM will support 1.8-3.3v targets with native 10-pin and 20-pin ARM connections1. The 10-pin cable connection is a 2x5 orientation with 0.050" x 0.050" spacing matching those found on Stellaris boards. The 20-pin cable connection is a standard 2x10 socket with 0.100" x 0.100" spacing that is found on most TI ARM-based boards.

As an added bonus, Texas Instruments is offering Code Composer Studio™ for FREE for use with the USB100v2. Please visit the TI wiki page for the XDS100 for news and details on this offer here:
