Bus Blaster v2 back in stock

Posted on Friday, October 7th, 2011 in Bus Blaster by DP

Bus Blaster v2 JTAG debugger is back in stock at Seeed Studio.The cool thing about the Bus Blaster is that it uses a programmable logic chip as a buffer. It can imitate different types of programming hardware with a simple USB update.

This batch is a new revision (v2.5). It includes a button and LED connected to the CPLD breakout pins. The local power selection header (JP4) was also moved to the edge of the PCB.

You can get a Bus Blaster v2 for $34.95.

    How’s v3 coming? My understanding is that it can support SWD and trace?

      v2 supports SWD with the kt-link buffer, but v3 will also support the SWO (?) feature. The problem is we use the secondary JTAG interface to program the buffer in update mode. ktlink uses the serial UART pin (shard with JTAG pins) to receive the SWO channel data (or, as I recall….). We had to make a selector so it can be used for IO in normal mode, or switched to update the buffer.

      V3 is in the queue, but not yet started. Maybe next spring/summer.
