Kane Computing offers portable JTAG Emulator for developing better software faster
XDS560v2 STM Traveler JTAG Emulator
Kane Computing has announced that Spectrum Digital has released the USB bus-powered XDS560v2 STM Traveler JTAG Emulator, which, by operating without a standalone power supply, allows the user to be more flexible in developing and testing products.
The XDS560v2 STM Traveler works with Texas Instrument’s (TI’s) Code Composer Studio IDETM Version 4.2 or higher on Windows-based host systems, making it compatible with existing XDS560v2s.
It also operates on Linux host systems with TI’s Code Composer Studio IDETM Version 5 or higher.
According to Kane Computing, the emulator delivers a higher level of debug capability, as well as MIPI System Trace on select processors, modular JTAG tail, a standard CTI20 JTAG interface with a CTI20-TI14 target adaptor.
- Powered by the host PC’s USB 2.0 interface
- Seven LEDs indicate emulator’s operational status
- Reset switch is user accessible
- Supports processors with JTAG interface levels from 1.2–4.1V
- Supports a number of Texas Instruments processors
- Supports DSS Java scripting for system and production testing
The Impact-E PCIe is a compact, low-power embedded PC featuring the Intel D525 Atom processor. The computer is assembled and tested within a lean manufacturing environment under ISO 9001.
Amplicon has added to its industrial embedded Impact-E series with the Impact-E PCIe, a compact fanless embedded system. Powered by an Intel Atom D525 dual-core processor, the system is suitable for multiple applications that support PCIe.
Industry is traditionally slow to adopt any new Microsoft operating system. Many industrial Windows users will have no need for the many new features on offer and will be cautious of potential bugs or security flaws. It is rarely worth considering switching to a new operating system unless you are developing a new product. For those who are making the switch, this white paper from Amplicon describes the key benefits of using Windows 7.
Drivven, a provider of automotive control and data acquisition technology, has used CompactRIO hardware and Labview software from National Instruments to prototype an engine control system for a 2004 Yamaha YZF-R6 motorcycle.
As processors become more complex, ensuring proper operation becomes more involved and more is required from supervisory circuits. In this application note, Maxim Integrated Products claims that its supervisor ICs have kept pace with the development of increasingly complex products, providing monitoring and control for multi-voltage systems.
