USB100v2 JTAG Controllers

The Blackhawk™ USB100v2 JTAG Controllers are very low-cost controllers for basic debugging of Texas Instruments DSPs. Requiring no external power source, they can support most of the basic features of higher priced controllers and require no additional drivers when installed using the Code Composer Studio™ integrated development environment (IDE) v4 or later.

Both models are TI XDS100v2-compatible controllers fully supported under Code Composer Studio IDE v4/v5 and future Texas Instruments roadmap software development environments. Faster code downloads and assembly code stepping are provided by the use a high-speed USB2.0 (480 Mb/s) port instead of slower USB1.x (12 Mb/s) implementations.

Both models are identical in hardware and software support, but offer different, native target connection options – check your target board’s JTAG connector.
