1. What's new?
    Home page setup[Jul.4, 2004]

2. Introduction to HICE-218x
  HICE-218x is another emulator for ADSP-218x family fixed-point DSPs. It's
compatible with EZ-ICE-218x, but with a few improvements:
  * USB1.1 interface, powered by USB, no AC adapter needed
  * Fast data transfer at 921600bps
  * Support 5V, 3.3V, 2.5V and 1.8V DSP chips
  * More stable, almost no need to reset
  * Work with VisualDSP 6.1, and VisualDSP++ 3.x
  * many others...

3. What's different between HICE-218x and EZ-ICE-218x?
    HICE-218x is a new emulator for the ADSP-218x family DSPs. It uses USB
interface and COM-to-USB converting technology to connect to the VisualDSP
IDE. Since the power waste of HICE-218x is very low, it's powered by the USB
directly. To use it, just plug in the USB cable, and a new COM port will be
installed in your computer. Select the new COM port, such as COM3, and the
VisualDSP software will connect with HICE-218x automatically at the speed of
921600 bps.
    HICE-218x is not just a copy of EZ-ICE-218x. Both the PCB and the
firmwire are totally new designed. Due to ustable serial port communication,
EZ-ICE-218x will lose connection frequently. HICE-218x has a more robust
communication protocol, and you don't need to shut down VisualDSP IDE and
reset the emulator so frequently.
    HICE-218x is cheap, the price will be less than USD300.

4. Developing Progress
    HICE-218x is under developing.
    Task 5: System testing. TBD.
    Task 4: firmwire porting and debuging. TBD.
    Task 3: Serial port communication protocol debugging. Almost finished @
July 4, 2004
    Task 2: PCB design. Finished @ June 20, 2004
    Task 1: ADSP-218x family DSP EZICE protocol analyzing. Almost finished @
May 5, 2004


Is it going to be open source?

No, at least in the first few months.

If all you are doing is copying the old protocol, won't you be copying the
bugs in the ADI ice as well?
