I would think this would be possible. The DM642 has a PCI boot mode and the
DM642 EVM is a giant PCI card. However, I don't know where you'd get the
Windows-side software/drivers to do this.
The XDS510PP Plus I mentioned above is an inexpensive but dependable
emulator. However, if during your development you'll be doing things like
loading mpeg files into the SDRAM or doing large memory dumps, etc. then it
will be SLOW because it's a parallel port emulator. Spectrum Digital has
another emulator, the XDS510USB for $1799 which is quite a bit faster.
However, Blackhawk makes a USB510 emulator (I believe for $1750) which uses
USB 2.0 and is much faster than even the XDS510USB from SD.
I don't know how much DSP development you do but this emulator will be
re-usable across all of TI's TMS320 DSPs (i.e. C2000, C5000, C6000).

I have two questions.
1) Could anyone recommend a low-cost JTAG emulator for PC, that would
be compatible with c6000 devices
2) Is it possible to program my DM642 evaluation board (the Spectrum
Digital model) _without_ using a JTAG emulator?
Thanks in advance.
