We have just sent off another batch of gerber files this time it’s for a new product, SplashTag. With our up coming product range we thought it would be helpful of us to offer a Jtag for those of you wanting to write your own code for the board and not use our ethernet bootloader. SplashTag is a programmer & debugging device that will work with Coocox, TI’s Code Composer, Rowley CrossWorks and more. It’s based on the XDS100v2 so should also mean it’s compatible with TI’s free Code Composer license I blogged about previously. We deviated slightly from the standard XDS100v2 and broke out the spare Uart on the FT2232HL giving you a USB serial port, which always comes in handy when debugging.
The SplashTag uses a standard 20pin ARM jtag connector. To make it as flexible as possible we will also sell a couple of adapters allowing the SplashTag to connect to TI’s DSPs via their 14pin jtag connection or to an ARM based microprocessor using a 10way JTag header.
