XDS510USB: who wins clone war?

Started by no...@spam.please September 12, 2007
Hi everybody,
my company needs to buy a couple of XDS510USB JTAG adapters to replace 
the old parallel version. I found some much cheaper compatible devices 
on the net (< USD500), but I've no idea about their reliability...
Could you please recommend some of them based on your direct experience?
Thank you in advance.
Regards,
Or

We bought 2 XDS510 here http://www.gaotek.com/ on July 2007 No problem with shipping (in France), the products were delivered in 2 or 3 days. It works fine still you connect to an USB2 Port. (as fast as the Spectrum Digital XDS510PP+ I personally use). I First Connect the probe to a USB1 HUB. Performances decrease drasticly. (No way to debug in this case..) There is no problem with driver installation. In certain circumstances, we still use CCS 1.20. Theses probes are only compatible with CCS 2.0 and later. Hope this helps.

Beware of some of the cheap clones from China. I know someone who bought one for a little less than 500USD and it was a ripoff of a Blackhawk emulator. It never worked right until we tried some Blackhawk drivers and then amazingly it found a Blackhawk device ID and serial number embedded in the device firmware.
