Expanded Support for OMAP3 Applications Processors

Camarillo, Calif. – 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 used simultaneously.

The JTAGjet-OMAP3 emulator will start shipping in March 2009. For more information, please contact Signum Systems Corp. at 805-383-3682 or visit
