Can I use JTAG Programmer Cable of Digilent with MCUs and MPUs?


Recommended Posts


I am developing a eletronic project with one MCU of Texas Instruments, more precisely the TM4C1294KCPDT. I want to use the JTAG protocol to program and debug de circuit.

Can i use one of JTAG Program cable of Digilent in my project, or i need a special JTAG for my MCU?

Best Regards to all,

Hi Leonardo, 

No, you will not be able to use our JTAG cables, our programming circuits were developed for Xilinx FPGA's. 

You may need to have a Debugger/Emulation cable specific for the TI chip. 

http://www.ti.com/product/TM4C1294KCPDT/toolssoftware has a list of them. 

Doing a little bit of research, it looks like TI includes an emulator/debugger on the LaunchPad (if you a connected launchpad). That looks like it would be a low cost option.
