Blackhawk XDS560 Trace System

The Blackhawk™ XDS560 Trace System (XDS560 Trace) is non-intrusive, hardware-based trace tool for debugging and profiling high-performance, DSP-based applications providing developers with advanced visibility to debug specialized problems that occur in high-performance, real-time embedded applications. This real-time visibility produces the detailed information needed to determine where complex and intermittent problems occur as well as the ability to analyze, profile, and tune applications for optimal performance.


Description

The Blackhawk™ XDS560 Trace System (XDS560 Trace) is non-intrusive, hardware-based trace tool for debugging and profiling high-performance, DSP-based applications providing developers with advanced visibility to debug specialized problems that occur in high-performance, real-time embedded applications. This real-time visibility produces the detailed information needed to determine where complex and intermittent problems occur as well as the ability to analyze, profile, and tune applications for optimal performance.

The XDS560 Trace System is available in several configurations or as add-on to your existing Blackhawk XDS560-class emulator (contact Blackhawk to confirm compatibility) and see Ordering Information at the bottom of this page. Included in the kit are CCStudio v3.3 emulation drivers on CD ROM, all necessary power and interface cables, and documentation. A 60e-14t pin converter is also supplied for backwards compatibly to standard debugging of targets that do not have a 60-pin connector.


Features

  • Non-intrusive high-speed data trace
  • Single, independently clocked input channel
  • Independently de-skew data pins on channel initialization
  • Up to 333 MHz data rate (167 MHz dual edge clock)
  • High-speed USB 2.0 (480 Mbit/sec) host port interface
  • Full integration with CCStudio Advanced Event Triggering (AET)
  • Real-time code and event profiling
  • Customizable output Trace display for post processing analysis


Benefits

  • Easier, more efficient development
  • Quickly track down extremely complex real-time bugs
  • Find and solve the invisible, most difficult, and intermittent bugs
  • Capture events leading up to system crashes or race conditions
  • Integrated time stamping for a high degree of accuracy
  • Shorten time spent debugging complex, context-sensitive bugs
  • High cache visibility to fix pipeline stalls that would otherwise go unnoticed
  • Fine-tune algorithms and code performance for best performance
  • Increases product quality and stability


Operating System Compatibility

  • Windows® XP/Vista/7/8/10 (32 and 64-bit)
  • Windows® 2003 Server (32 and 64-bit)

Development Environments

  • Code Composer Studio v5 (eclipse)
  • Code Composer Studio v3.3
  • Code Composer Studio v4 (eclipse)

The 60-pin, high-density target board connector

In addition to selecting a DSP that support XDS560 Trace you will need to populate your target board hardware with the correct connector that supports the high-speed interface. This is a high-density connector available from SAMTEC and it only requires about the same PCB area as the standard TI 14-pin JTAG header. So fitting it into your board layout should not be a problem.

It is STRONGLY recommended that this connector be used in place of, and not in addition to a 14-pin JTAG connector so that signal integrity remains high to support the high-speed XDS560 Trace interface. 60 to 14-pin adapters are available to support debugging from conventional JTAG emulators.

For more information on the new 60-pin connector and board layout considerations for these high-speed signals, please refer to the TI document, SPRU655.
