Moorpark, CA – October 22, 2002 – Signum Systems Corp. today announced an ultra-fast JTAG interface tool for ARM and OMAP embedded designs. JTAGjet emulator comes with Chameleon Debugger for ARM and gives software developers the choice of using other third party ARM debuggers as well. JTAGjet, is a small, palm-sized unit that connects to the PC’s parallel port and allows downloading applications at speeds greater than 500 Kbytes per second.

The JTAGjet is fully compatible with most of ARM debuggers, including ADS (ARM), Palm Universal Debugger (Palm), Code Composer Studio (TI), GDB (GNU) and Chameleon Debugger (Signum Systems). It is targeted specifically for design teams and software contractors that need the high-speed operation and require one hardware tool for design groups with different software tools, greater portability and remote debugging.

With the new JTAGjet emulation technology from Signum Systems, high-speed downloads between the host PC and target board can reach 1 MBytes per second (MBps), allowing developers to quickly download the entire embedded Operating Systems and applications, inspect variables and refresh the debugger windows in fraction of the time required by conventional JTAG interfaces. An optional ICEServer software allows any JTAGjet connected to a workstation PC to be shared with other users over the Local Area Network.

The JTAGjet technology extends even more debugging power to the developer by providing an optional ETM (Embedded Trace Macrocell) Advanced Trace module capabilities to quickly find and fix difficult real-time software problems. These new key features increase productivity for designers and shorten time to market for new ARM and OMAP based applications.

JTAGjet also features better target control during power and reset cycles and is ideal for bringing-up new hardware as it incorporates core power and reset monitoring, programmable JTAG clock speeds (down to 1kHz), automated test scripts and CPU initialization macros for many target platforms to get the hardware configured and tested before running applications.

The JTAGjet emulator comes with the Chameleon Debugger for ARM and OMAP cores that features smooth interface to many ARM C compilers, powerful and intuitive user interface, Graphical Event Triggering System, software and hardware breakpoints, drag-and-drop variables, C and ASM level fly-over variable pop-ups and hundreds of other debugging shortcuts.

New hardware registers or peripherals, which are common to every ASIC design, may be easily added by using a Register Window template or by using a plain text file and displayed in the Register Window with all relevant information, including bit field names and descriptions.

A complete, integrated debug system consisting of the JTAGjet and Chameleon Debugger for ARM and OMAP is available now starting at $1,500. For further information call Signum Systems at (800) 838-8012, email sales@signum.com or visit www.signum.com.
