Blackhawk USB510W JTAG Emulator

The Blackhawk USB510W is the first of its kind wireless JTAG emulator for Texas Instruments DSPs. The USB510W has an embedded 802.11 wireless transceiver and requires no hard connection to a PC in order to debug using Code Composer Studio.


Debug Safely; Debug Remotely.


Pricing & Availability


The major benefit of the USB510W's wireless 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.

The integrated wireless transceiver chip of the USB510W is capable of supporting the following wireless protocols and speeds:

  • 802.11n: 6.5, 13, 19.5, 26, 39, 52, 58.5, & 65 Mbps
  • 802.11ag: 6, 9, 12, 18, 24, 36, 48, & 54 Mbps
  • 802.11b: 1, 2, 5.5, & 11 Mbps

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. And of course, the USB510W can also be used for debugging via the high-speed USB port.
