WTB SpectrumDigital's DSP Emulator XDS510PP

Started by VNG February 2, 2005
I would like to buy a Spectrum Digital's XDS510PP JTAG Emulator.

Anybody have one no longer needed?  or for sale?

Please email me at:
drdspAThotmail.com
(obviously substitute the AT with @)

Thanks,
VNG

Does anybody else feel like they've been ripped off after shelling out two grand for one of these? Looks like $20 bucks worth of parts inside, most of which are also on DSK boards that cost $300 with IDE included! John

You are paying for the NRE and the (relatively) low volumes. Plus there is usually no competition. But I agree!
Here...here!

We got the emulator and the TMS320VC5509EVM evaluation module...  $4000!

I've had nothing but problems trying to get the interface to consistently 
power-up for the Code Composer interface.  Submitting a problem report 
results in a generic "there's nothing wrong... it must be your problem". 
I'm connected exactly as they specify in their documentation.

I would never buy from Spectrum Digital again.

I agree too!! Though I can see the reason for the high price (as John 
Harris comments on above).

Anyway, can you possibly carry out a full real-time DSP development w/o 
emulator? I guess it is possible as long as you can develop with the 
interfaces given on DSK/EZ-KIT/etc.

I find Spectrum's emulators very Expensive!!!

I would prefer GAO Engineering's Emulators any day. Here is their URL
www.gaoengineering.com

Why not get the XDS510PP emulator from GAO Engineering
(www.gaoengineering.com). The specs are the same and it costs almost half
of what Spectrum quotes.

Check it out at
http://www.gaoengineering.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=20&zenid=a9815d23e7a56c2aeeb4ac31344d80cd


Hope this helps :)

We're looking to buy a new emulator. How has your experience been in using theirs? Cheers! --M
