Emulator Model Comparison

 

 

Blackhawk has a broad range of emulator models that span the full spectrum of capabilities and price. From the entry level XDS100v2 and affordable USB2000 Controller to the most advanced XDS560v2 System Trace. All Blackhawk Emulators are backed by solid support and continual software updates to ensure compatibility with the latest Texas Instruments Devices and Platforms.

 

Listed below are detailed comparisons of the Blackhawk JTAG Emulators organized by emulation class (XDS100, XDS510, XDS560 and XDS560v2).  Additional details and differences between emulators and emulation technologies can be found here on the Texas Instruments Emulation Wiki Page.

Comparison Questions

 

 

The Most Popular Questions Asked Today When Comparing Emulators:

  • Does XDS560v2 replace XDS560-class emulators?

The quick answer is yes, unless you have projects that still require CCS v3.3 and/or use High-Speed Real Time Data eXchange (HS-RTDX).  All Blackhawk XDS100v2, XDS510 and XDS560-class emulators support CCS v3.3 and later.  Does your emulator support CCS v3.3 and later?

  • Can I replace my XDS510 emulator with an XDS200 model?

In general, you can replace your XDS510 emulator with an XDS200-class emulator if you are using CCS v5.2 or later and not debugging C24x, C62xx, C670x/1x/2x or C641x devices (C64x+ devices, such as C6455 and C674x are supported). For the latest information, please visit the TI XDS200 Wiki page.

  • Does your emulator support 1.8 volt IOs?

Devices and target boards are being released with 1.8 volt IOs.  Can your emulator support this, or does it need an adapter at extra cost? 

  • Does your XDS560v2 emulator support System Trace (STM)?

You are looking for an affordable, high-performance XDS560v2 debugger, but does it support System Trace (STM)? All Blackhawk XDS560v2 models support System Trace (STM).

NOTE:  The XDS100v2 models are identical in hardware and Code Composer Studio Device support.   The main difference is the included/optional target connections.
For example, if your target board has an ARM 20-pin multi-ICE connection, both models will work with your target board, however the BH-USB-100v2D
model will require an additional pin converter while the BH-USB-100v2-ARM model will not. See the feature below on target connections.
