Expanded Support for OMAP3 Applications Processors
– February 11, 2009 – Signum Systems Corp., a debug and emulation tool
company, today announced expanded support for the JTAGjet-OMAP3 emulator
for the development and debugging of Texas Instruments OMAP34x, 35x and
36x applications processors.
Signum Systems’ JTAGjet-OMAP3 emulator supports the entire OMAP3 family,
which includes the Cortex-A8 based OMAP3410/3420/3430/3440,
OMAP3610/3620/3630/3640 and OMAP3515/3503 devices as well as the
OMAP3530 and OMAP3525 devices which come with the Cortex-A8 and
TMS320C64x+ DSP cores.
The expanded support allows debuggers other than Code Composer Studio™
to be used for development of OMAP3 applications. The emulator has been
specifically configured to make debugging the OMAP3 family faster and
easier and includes high-speed (480 Mbps) USB 2.0 interface to a Windows
host PC, Chameleon Debugger™ for Cortex-A8, Embedded Trace Buffer (ETB)
support, drivers for the Code Composer Studio™ 3.3 debugger, RDI drivers
for third-party ARM debuggers as well as Flash programmer for rapid NOR
and NAND flash programming.
The JTAGjet-OMAP3 is compatible with TI’s Code Composer Studio™
integrated development environment (IDE) as well as most major ARM
debuggers. The debugger’s ETB support adds extra visibility into the
executing ARM code in real-time and allows tracing of the executing
program and its variables.
For debugging complex applications the JTAGjet emulator may be
optionally equipped with up to 18MBytes of real-time, ARM Embedded Trace
Microcell (ETM) trace buffer memory. The Concurrent Debug option is
available for applications where the ARM and DSP debuggers need to be
The JTAGjet-OMAP3 emulator will start shipping in March 2009. For more
