Hello, thanks Richard and Michael for answering.
- Concerning SW (CCS and drivers) I now think is oK. I have installed
CCS Studio Platinum 4.0 (trial version, but I am getting the full
version soon) which created a folder C:\Program
Files\Blackhawk\Emulation\Drivers. I connected the emulator and
installed the drivers from this location, and now the device it is
detected and displayed properly in the "Blackhawk control panel".
- Concerning HW I still have a doubt : I have contacted Blackhaw and
they told me I only need a 14 to 20-pin passive adapter part#
. They told me "The USB560m supports low voltage targets such as the
DM6446. Newer version of the USB560m come with a 20-pin cTI header where
no adapter is needed at all". However, in the FAQ of spectrum digital
(http://tinyurl.com/yf3us92) I read "The DaVinci EVM uses a 1.8V 20-pin
JTAG header. This is different than the standard 3.3V 14-pin standard
JTAG header normally found on our development boards. The appropriate
JTAG adapter to use is: Spectrum Digital - Part #701212 (Low Voltage
Adapter with Adaptive Clocking)."
*I think I will end up buying the passive adapter, but I am still
worried about damaging the board or the JTAG due to voltage mismatch. I
also cannot figure out if "adaptive clocking" is needed or not. Can
somebody help me ?
Thanks and best regards,
