New LogoComparison of Blackhawk Emulator Models


The Blackhawk™ USB100v2-ARM controller is a very low-cost controller for basic debugging of Texas Instruments DSPs. Requiring no external power source, the USB100v2 can support most of the basic features of higher priced emulators and requires no additional drivers when installed using CCS v4 or later.

As an added bonus, Texas Instruments is offering Code Composer Studio™ for FREE for use with the USB100v2. Please visit the TI wiki page for the XDS100 for news and details on this offer here:

The USB100v2-ARM is a TI XDS100v2-compatible emulator fully supported under CCS v4 and future Texas Instruments roadmap software development environments. Blackhawk’s USB100v2-ARM provides additional features and performance not found in other XDS100v1 emulators. The USB100v2-ARM provides for faster code downloads and assembly code stepping in that the USB100v2 uses a high-speed USB2.0 (480 Mb/s) port instead of slower USB1.x (12 Mb/s) implementations.

The Blackhawk USB100v2-ARM will support 1.8-3.3v targets with native 10-pin and 20-pin ARM connections1. The 10-pin cable connection is a 2x5 orientation with 0.050" x 0.050" spacing matching those found on Stellaris boards.  The 20-pin cable connection is a standard 2x10 socket with 0.100" x 0.100" spacing that is found on most TI ARM-based boards.

 1 The USB100v2-ARM ships with two JTAG cables; one for 20-pin ARM MULTI-ICE formats (0.100" x0.100" spacing) and another for 10-pin orientation (0.050" x 0.050" spacing).  Connect and Use only one cable at a time.
