Blackhawk USB200 JTAG Emulator

The Blackhawk USB200 Emulator (USB200) is a TI XDS200-class emulator that is small, lightweight and portable. The USB200 product is compatible with the TI XDS2xx reference design and TI part number TMDSEMU200-U.

The USB200 offers an excellent balance of performance and price placing it in between the super low cost XDS100 and high performance XDS560 class emulators. The USB200 is compatible with Code Composer Studio IDE (CCS) v5.2 with the latest TI emulation update applied.
