Building upon its robust embedded processing software and tools ecosystem, Texas Instruments announced a new class of JTAG emulator, the XDS200 for $295. This new emulator can be utilized for hardware debugging, algorithm development and programming on TI’s embedded processors. Providing a great balance of cost and performance, the XDS200 emulator fits in the overall TI emulator portfolio between the entry-level XDS100 JTAG emulator and the XDS560v2 JTAG emulator with system trace receiver. XDS200 JTAG emulators support a USB connection to the host computer and work with 32- and 64-bit versions of Microsoft Windows and Linux operating systems.
JTAG emulators grant developers direct access to the application program, memory and registers, and provide the ability to control device execution. All TI JTAG emulators, including the new XDS200, can be controlled through a software integrated development environment (IDE), such as TI’s Code Composer Studio IDE, which can be utilized across TI’s entire embedded processing portfolio.
