BDI1000 & BDI2000

On-chip Debugging

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 a palette of economical and effective development tools for the built-in BDM and JTAG interface of processors with CPU12, CPU16, CPU32/32+, PowerPC, ColdFire, M-CORE, ARM, XScale and MIPS32/64.

Supports Debuggers from leading Vendors

Abatron's tools offer a comprehensive support for debuggers from leading vendors. These tools are based on the BDM/JTAG interfaces BDI1000 and BDI2000.

In most cases, the BDI family and the associated software packages eliminates the need for expensive hardware like an in-circuit emulator. BDI1000 and BDI2000 allow communication via RS232 or 10 BASE-T Ethernet between the development computer and the BDM or JTAG interface of the target system.

Description BDI1000 & BDI2000

BDI1000

High Performance

The BDI1000 allows communication via RS232 or 10 BASE-T Ethernet between the development computer and the BDM or JTAG interface of the target system. BDI1000 communicates with the target system with up to 5.5 Mbit/s (BDM) or 12 Mbit/s (JTAG) and allows fast program download rates of up to 130 Kbytes/s.

Flexible Hardware

The firmware and the programmable logic of the BDI1000 can be updated by the user with a simple Windows based configuration program. Thanks to the built-in DC-DC converter, the BDI1000 can be directly supplied from target system (2.5-5VDC) or with an external line adapter. The BDI1000 is optimally prepared for portable field applications.
