The CodeWarrior TAP enables target system debugging via a standard debug port (usually JTAG) while connected to a developer’s workstation via Ethernet or USB.
Using the CodeWarrior TAP’s Ethernet connection, you can debug systems remotely or effectively share a single system with multiple developers When a shared system is not needed, CodeWarrior TAP connects directly to a workstation with a single USB cable via which power is supplied The CodeWarrior TAP is designed to work with CodeWarrior development tools and processors It is a critical debug tool in all phases of the project and is necessary for debugging systems prior to running a fully debugged operating system.
The CodeWarrior TAP allows either USB or Ethernet (10/100 ) host connection for the developer workstation
USB powered, even when using Ethernet
Low cost removable probe tips sold separately
Supports debugging via JTAG interface
Automatically supports system voltage levels from 1.2 to 3.3
Supports all available core speeds and voltages for supported NXP processors
As a convenience feature, the CodeWarrior can connect to a target systems serial port allowing telnet access to a remotely located system and control of the U-boot program.
In conjunction with the CodeWarrior development system, the CodeWarrior TAP:
Programs system flash memory during debug and development phases of the project, including most popular flash memories, but specifically all flash memories used with NXP development systems
Controls the target development system even when the system may have crashed during development
Offers complete system visibility and control, including reading/writing of CPU registers, memory mapped registers, block reading/writing of memories, single step debugging, setting software and hardware breakpoints, and monitoring target system status
Gives control over the target system execution, including control of one or all cores, and resets
