The increasing complexity of today's software and hardware designs is leading to some fresh approaches to debugging. Silicon manufacturers offer more and more on-chip debugging features for emulation of new processors.
This capability, implemented in various processors under such names as Background Debug Mode (BDM), JTAG and on-chip emulation, puts basic debugging functions on the chip itself. With BDM or JTAG debug port, you control and monitor the microcontroller solely through the stable on-chip debugging services. This debugging mode runs even when the target system crashes and enables developers to continue investigating the cause of the crash. You won't waste time and target resources with a software ROM monitor, and you eliminate the cabling problems typical of ICEs.
Capitalizing on this technology, Abatron offers the high-speed BDI2000 BDM/JTAG interface with a comprehensive support for debuggers from leading vendors. BDI2000 allows communication via RS232 or 10 BASE-T Ethernet between the development computer and the BDM/JTAG interface of the target system.
The BDI2000 communicates with the target system with up to 16 Mbit/s and allows very fast program download rates of up to 340 Kbytes/s.
In most cases, the BDI2000 and the associated software packages eliminate the need for expensive hardware such as an incircuit emulator. Even better, the BDI2000 accesses the on-chip emulation capabilities of today's newest processors which aren't supported by traditional ICEs.
As a result of consistent implementation of latest technology, the BDI2000 is optimally prepared for further enhancements.
The firmware and the programmable logic of the BDI2000 can be updated by the user with a simple Windows based configuration program. The BDI2000 supports target systems from 1.8 Volts to 5.0 Volts.
The following example shows BDM/ JTAG debugging via 10 BASE-T Ethernet connection.
