Texas Instruments 14-pin (2.54mm) Converter

Click to expand

 

 

 

Ordering code

IAPIN20ARM14TI

Targets based on Texas Instruments (TI) ARM microcontroller can feature Texas Instruments Arm 14-pin target debug connector with the TI the proprietary pinout. A converter connecting at the end of the 20-pin 2.54mm Arm Debug Adapter is available for Arm 14-pin pinout. Make sure you don’t mix up TI pinout with the standard 14-pin 2.54mm Arm Debug Adapter (Ordering code IC50112).

14-pin TI Arm pinout

 

Signal Direction is described from the BlueBox perspective.

 

Warning_orange

When initially connecting the BlueBox to a target, ensure the debug adapter pinout matches the Target connector to avoid potential hardware failure.

 

If the jumper on the converter is populated, the SYSTEM RESET line is connected to pin 14 on the target side. If SYSTEM RESET is not needed, the jumper should be removed.

The converter connects to the target via a 14-pin 2.54 mm connector, for example Yamaichi FAS-1401-2101-2-0BF. A target should feature a matching part, for example WÜRTH ELEKTRONIK 61201421621.

 

Warning_orange

This converter is used only in conjunction with the 20-pin 2.54mm ARM Debug Adapter  (Ordering code IC50111-1).

 

 

Texas Instruments 60-pin MIPI Converter

Click to expand

 

 

 

Ordering code

IAMIC38MIPI60TMS570

Embedded targets based on Texas Instruments (TI) TMS570 microcontroller can feature Texas Instruments 60-pin MIPI target debug connector with the TI proprietary pinout. A converter connecting at the end of the Mictor 38-pin ARM Parallel 16-bit Debug Adapter is available for Texas Instruments 60-pin MIPI pinout and must be ordered separately.

 

Warning_orange

The iC5000 and the iC5700 can trace up to 16 trace data lines. For this reason the target microcontroller has to be configured for 16-bit trace port operation even if the target features 60-pin MIPI connector with 32 data trace lines connected.

 

Warning_orange

Signal naming in the documentation uses target signal names and not the ones from the MIPI standard. Refer to ‘MIPI Alliance Recommendation for Debug and Trace Connectors’ and ‘ARM Target Interface Connections’ documentation for more information about signal names and their functions.

 

The converter connects to the target via a 60-pin MIPI connector, for example Samtec QTH-030-01-L-D-A. A target should feature a matching part, for example Samtec QSH-030-01-L-D-A.

 

Warning_orange

This converter is used only in conjunction with the 38-pin Mictor ARM Parallel 16-bit Debug Adapter  (Ordering code IC50115).

Blue colored signals are parallel trace signals.

Signal Direction is described from the BlueBox perspective.

 

Only debugging (no trace) is possible through this converter. The converter must be ordered separately.

 

Warning_orange

When initially connecting the BlueBox to a target, ensure the debug adapter pinout matches the Target connector to avoid potential hardware failure.

 

 

i-icon

Make sure this adapter fits on your target connector - check Cross Table.

50-pin ERF8 MPC5xxx Nexus Converter

Click to expand

 

 

 

Ordering code

IAMIC38SAM50MPC

Some targets based on NXP MPC5xxx / ST SPC5 family can feature a 50-pin Samtec ERF8 connector for the Nexus debug interface instead of the popular 38-pin Mictor connector. In this case use and connect the converter to the target first and then connect the 38-pin Mictor MPC5xxx Nexus 16-bit Debug Adapter to the converter.

 

Warning_orange

It has been noticed that the 50-pin Samtec ERF8 target connector may not always provide good mechanical stability in a vertical direction which can in worst case yield an unreliable debug connection. Special care must be taken when connecting this debug adapter to the target to prevent potential connection problems.

 

Warning_orange

When initially connecting the BlueBox to a target, ensure the debug adapter pinout matches the Target connector to avoid potential hardware failure.

 

The converter connects to the target via a 50-pin Samtec ERM8 connector, Samtec ERM8-025-01-L-D-EM2-TR. A target should feature a matching part, for example Samtec ERF8-025-05.0-L-DV.

22-pin ERF8 AURIX target pinout

 

Signal Direction is described from the BlueBox perspective.

 

Warning_orange

When initially connecting the BlueBox to a target, ensure the debug adapter pinout matches the Target connector to avoid potential hardware failure.

 

This debug adapter features resettable fuses on pins 2, 4, 5, 6, 10, 11, 12, 17 and 22. These fuses protect debug signals against overcurrent and cycle back to a conductive state after the excessive current fades away.

 

The debug adapter connects to the target via a 22-pin ERF8 connector, Samtec ASP-137971-02. The target must have populated a matching part, for example Samtec ASP-137969-01, Samtec Series ERF8, Rugged High Speed Socket.
