Blackhawk USB510 JTAG Controller

The Blackhawk™ USB510 JTAG Emulator is the ultra-compact XDS510™-class offering in our high-performance JTAG Emulator lineup for Texas Instruments TMS320, TMS470 (ARM) and OMAP families. The credit card sized USB510 JTAG Emulator is the most compact and lightweight JTAG emulator available.


The USB bus powered design, which requires no external power source, is the ultimate in portability resulting in an ultra-compact unit that is very affordable. Blackhawk is the first company to introduce a USB JTAG emulator for Texas Instruments DSP’s and the new USB510 set’s the standard for portability, reliability and ease of installation.

The high-speed USB 2.0 port operates at 480 Mbits/second and is Plug n’ Play compatible with Windows®. Software compatibility with all versions of Code Composer and Code Composer Studio including v2.2 and above, and a driver independent DLL developed by Blackhawk, assures existing and future device compatibility for legacy or new DSPs right out of the box with no upgrades required.

The Blackhawk USB510 includes legacy support for Code Composer v4.1x and CCStudio v1.2 which gives users access and compatibility to VC33, C20x and C24x. The USB510 JTAG Emulator is also compatible with Code Composer Studio™ Flash-burner utility.

Blackhawk JTAG Emulators are available from a world wide network of industry resellers.
