The target DSP must support XDS560 trace. As of this product
release, there are 17 TI catalog DSPs available that support the
XDS560 Trace System. They are:
TMS320C6454 TMS320C6455 TMS320C6418
TMS320C6416 TMS320C6415T TMS320C6415
TMS320C6410 TMS320DM643 TMS320DM642
Visit the TI Web Site to this list or contact TI for information
on their trace-enabled DSP device roadmap.

high-density target board connector :
In addition to selecting a DSP that support XDS560 Trace you
will need to populate your target board hardware with the
correct connector that supports the high-speed interface. This
is a high-density connector available from SAMTEC and it only
requires about the same PCB area as the standard TI 14-pin JTAG
header. So fitting it into your board layout should not be a
It is STRONGLY recommended that this connector be used in place
of, and not in addition to a 14-pin JTAG connector so that
signal integrity remains high to support the high-speed XDS560
Trace interface. 60 to 14-pin adapters are available to support
debugging from conventional JTAG emulators.

layout considerations for these high-speed signals, please refer
