Blackhawk XDS560v2 System Trace Emulators

Blackhawk XDS560v2 System Trace Emulator is is a development tool for Texas Instruments DSPs that is based on the TI XDS560v2 JTAG emulator reference design. The Blackhawk XDS560v2 emulator includes both high-speed USB 2.0 and 10/100Mbit Ethernet host interfaces, multi-color state and activity LEDs and a flexible ribbonized coax JTAG cable.

The Blackhawk XDS560v2 offers a power over Ethernet option, a power over USB only option, and additional dedicated LEDs for power and USB. Blackhawk also offers the USB560BP XDS560-class emulator that supports the advanced capabilities of the latest TI DSPs.
