low cost emulator for DaVinci

Started by jigs_dsp January 8, 2007
Which one is low cost JTAG emulator for TI DaVinci DM6446?
Spectrum Digital XDS510 USB seems to be very good choice, but quite
expensive.

If someone is planning to sell any JTAG emulator (used) which can work
with DaVinci DM6446, please let me know.

Thanks and Regards,

Normally I would recommend SEED USB emulator as a low-cost choice. However, we've not been able to get it to work
reliably yet with 67xx devices. That is a vexing problem for us.

We have an outstanding "Answer Offer" of USD 100 for anyone who can demonstrate how to configure and run the SEED USB
emulator with DSK C6711 board.

I've never used the XDS560 PCI card, so I don't know about it. I would think the
JTAG header cable for the card should be something you can find or maybe your TI
salesperson who takes care of your University can help with. Your Prof should know
who is the TI person.

You could but don't do that, or at least not yet. v3.2 is intended for C64x+ core
devices such as 6455. You can use the Update Advisor in CCS to download current
patches and files for v3.1.
