BDI1000 & BDI2000
The increasing complexity of today's software and hardware designs is
leading to some fresh approaches to debugging. Silicon manufacturers
offer more and more on-chip debugging features for emulation of new
processors. This capability, implemented in various processors under
such names as Background Debug Mode (BDM), JTAG and on-chip emulation,
puts basic debugging functions on the chip itself. With BDM or JTAG
debug port, you control and monitor the microcontroller solely through
the stable on-chip debugging services. This debugging mode runs even
when the target system crashes and enables developers to continue
investigating the cause of the crash. You won't waste time and target
resources with a software ROM monitor, and you eliminate the cabling
problems typical of ICEs.

Description BDI1000 & BDI2000
The BDI1000 allows communication via RS232 or 10 BASE-T Ethernet between the development computer and the BDM or JTAG interface of the target system. BDI1000 communicates with the target system with up to 5.5 Mbit/s (BDM) or 12 Mbit/s (JTAG) and allows fast program download rates of up to 130 Kbytes/s.
The firmware and the programmable logic of the BDI1000 can be updated by the user with a simple Windows based configuration program. Thanks to the built-in DC-DC converter, the BDI1000 can be directly supplied from target system (2.5-5VDC) or with an external line adapter. The BDI1000 is optimally prepared for portable field applications.
As of April 15, 2008 the BDI2000 hardware is no longer available for the following applications:
Abatron will continue to support the BDI2000 for the above applications with software updates and technical support. In addition, any new CPU support or enhancements that are added to the BDI3000 firmware will also be added to the BDI2000 firmware.
