EDGE Support

High-speed BDM/JTAG Interface for EDGE Debugger

The bdiNDI software allows communication between the EDGE Debugger from Mentor Graphics and the BDM/JTAG interface of the target system via Abatron's BDI2000. With the BDI family, you control and monitor the microcontroller solely through the stable on-chip debugging services. You won't waste time and target resources with a software ROM monitor, and you eliminate the cabling problems typical of ICEs. This combination runs even when the target system crashes and enabling developers to continue investigating the cause of the crash.


  • Source level debugging for CPU32/32+, PowerPC, ColdFire and XScale
  • Assist in bringing up new hardware
  • Ethernet debugging also with target systems without network capability
  • Internal break register supported (allows debugging of code running out of a read only memory)
  • Fast download speed
  • No target communication channel (e.g. serial line) is wasted for debugging purposes
  • Easy to connect on target, eliminate the cabling problems typical of ICEs
  • Host access via RS232 (uo to 115 Kbaud) or Ethernet (10 Mbit/s)
  • 3 years hardware warranty and 1 year software warranty & support
