Blackhawk USB510L JTAG Emulator

The Blackhawk™ USB510L JTAG Emulator is a very affordable and full-featured addition to our product lineup for Texas Instruments TMS320, TMS470 (ARM), DaVinci and OMAP families.

Revisions E and F include a 20-pin ribbon cable with 20-pin cTI JTAG connection. A pin converter to 14-pin TI JTAG connections is also included in the box.


Pricing & Availability


Portability of the USB510L is enhanced due to the very compact pod and because no external power is required except for a USB connection. This makes the new emulator very well suited for travel and use with notebook computers.  Many of the older and less-sophisticated parallel port and PCMCIA emulators cannot be used on modern laptops and the USB510L is a faster, easier and cost-effective replacement.

BHFlashBurn is a scriptable utility that follows the freely available Texas Instruments API and algorithms for programming DSPs with on-chip flash.  Blackhawk Isolation Adapter, supporting 3.3-5.0 volt targets, protects from ground loop voltage, harsh environments and new, untested designs.

The USB510L JTAG Emulator is also compatible with Code Composer Studio Flash-burn and TI Uniflash utilities.
