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. Supports 2-pin cJTAG mode.
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 2-pin cJTAG mode.
XDS510USB
Mid-class debug-probe for C2000, but replaced by the XDS200, so no longer recommended.
XDS560v2
Preferred advanced debug-probe with increased performance over XDS200. Supports 2-pin cJTAG mode.
Isolation adapters
Provides electrical isolation to any debug probe.

The C2000 real-time control gang programmer connects to a host PC using a standard RS-232 or USB connection and provides flexible programming options that allow the user to fully customize the process.  C2000-GANG can be used in standalone mode as well. Elprotronic
FlashPro 2000 FlashPro2000 is an automated USB Flash procution Programmer for Texas Instruments C2000 real-time control series MCUs.  FlashPro2000 allows serialization - Connect up to 64 programmers to one PC and control simulataneous programming from one software. Elprotronic
C2Prog C2Prog is a secure, scriptable, industrial grade flash programming tool for TI performance MCUs. In addition to supporting the JTAG interface, C2Prog also permits re-flashing over RS-232, RS-485, TCP/IP, USB and CAN (Controller Area Network). Firmware images can be encrypted and password protected. The programmer is, therefore, well suited for deployment in the field, especially when IP protection is important.
