In-Circuit Emulators

The Spectrum Digital JTAG emulators (ext. Link) provide the interface between the development software (Code Composer Studio or SDFlash), running on the host computer, and the DSP target. The JTAG emulators provide a choice of interfaces to the host processor (USB, Ethernet) and offer various emulation capabilities.

Please check the Emulator - Code Composer - Operating System Compatibility (ext. Link)
These are the most popular emulators:

Starter Kits

The Spectrum Digital eZdsp™ and DSK (ext. Link) are stand alone modules that allow users examine and evaluate certain characteristics of Texas Instruments digital signal processors (DSP) to determine if this DSP meets their application requirements. This eZdsp™ and DSK modules have on-board JTAG emulation scan controllers. The board is interfaced with the host computer via USB or parallel port. Therefore, the module may be operated without additional development tools such as a JTAG emulator. Furthermore, the module is an excellent platform to develop, demonstrate, and run software on TI's DSPs. The eZdsp™ and DSK modules allows full speed verification of DSP code. Expansion connectors are provided for any necessary evaluation circuitry or peripherals not provided on the shipped configuration.

The following table lists the most popular Starter Kits

Evaluation Modules

Spectrum Digital EVMs (ext. Link) are circuit boards containing a DSP, peripherals, expansion connectors, and a JTAG emulation interface. They allow the user to benchmark software, prototype applications, and debug algorithms. EVMs allow the user to move forward with their designs and do a proof of concept before designing their own custom hardware.
