The JTAG cable comes with a native MIPI 60 connection and the unit ships with three pin converters for connection to target boards with 14-pin TI, 20-pin compact TI, and 20-pin Arm headers. Along with traditional JTAG IEEE 1149.1, the USB560v2 also includes support for IEEE 1149.7 and system trace (STM), an interface on the TI heterogeneous multi-core (ARM + DSP) devices.
Blackhawk provides a comprehensive debug interface utility, Bh560v2Config, that users can use to search for, setup, and test the USBS560v2. The testing capability of the utility includes both host and target interface options. The Bh560v2Config utility works with all Blackhawk XDS560v2 models via USB and Ethernet on Windows and Linux platforms.
The System Trace capability is compliant to MIPI STP. All Blackhawk XDS560v2-class emulators support STM. Access to this capability is provided by TI CTools enabled devices for debug and optimization of multi-core processors. This helps users look at the synchronization and timing between cores and on-chip peripherals in their application.
