Blackhawk USB560m JTAG Emulator

The Blackhawk USB560 JTAG emulator is the third generation of the most widely used USB XDS560-class emulator, first introduced by Blackhawk in 2002. The USB560 supports all of the advanced capabilities of Texas Instruments latest DSPs. These capabilities include high-speed Real-Time Data Exchange HS-RTDX™, lightning speed downloads and Advanced Event Triggering to quickly find and fix real-time software problems.


Pricing & Availability


The compact JTAG emulator pod features a variable TCK (timing clock) up to 50 MHz and supports voltages from 5v down to 0.5v to support TI low-voltage device roadmap. Software compatible with all versions of Code Composer Studio™ (CCStudio) integrated development environment (IDE) v2.2 and later. Drivers are provided for Windows® 2000/XP/Vista/7/8/10. Additionally, 64-bit drivers are available for XP Pro x64, Vista x64, 7, 8, and 10 x64. All driver updates are available for download free-of-charge from our website.

The Blackhawk USB560 JTAG Emulator supports TMS320, TMS470 (ARM®) and OMAP™ families including the DaVinci™ platform. The USB560 JTAG Emulator is also compatible with the Code Composer Studio Flash-burner utility.

The Blackhawk™ USB560 JTAG Emulator is backward compatible with USB v1.0/1.1 and can handle very low I/O power supply voltages (0.5 to 5.0 volts) while preserving compatibility with previous XDS510™-class devices. The XDS560-class technology extends capabilities to the developer by providing dramatically faster high-speed Real-Time Data Exchange (HS-RTDX)™ bandwidth for real-time visibility, significantly faster code downloads for better productivity and Advanced Event Triggering capabilities to quickly find and fix difficult real-time software problems. These new key features increase productivity for designers and shorten time to market for new DSP applications.

The XDS560-class emulator introduced these benefits for debugging.
