Debug probes

JTAG debug probes (emulators) allow you to program the memories and communicate with the C2000 Real-time MCU during development. While almost all C2000 Tools include JTAG emulation on the controlCARD, LaunchPad, baseboard, or application board, once you build your own board you will need external debug probe.  These debug probes are offered at different price points so include different features, comparative performance, and CCS IDE compatibility.

Part number Description
XDS110 Preferred low-cost debug-probe.  Performance is roughly equivalent to the XDS100V2. Supported only by CCS version 7 and greater.
XDS100V2 Low-cost debug-probe, specifically recommended for older device series or older versions of CCS.  The design is open and may be copied to create your own debug-probe.
XDS200 Preferred mid-class external debug probe for C2000 users. Supports new 2-pin cJTAG mode for use with Piccolo F28004x series.
XDS510USB Mid-class debug-probe for C2000, but replaced by the XDS200, so no longer recommended.
XDS560 Preferred advanced debug-probe with increased performance over XDS200.
Isolation adapters Provides electrical isolation to any debug probe.
