I'm about to design a PCB for a project with a TI DSP (TMS320C6720). What is the best method to use as an interface for getting the program onto the DSP? I haven't done this part myself before. I'll be using CCS v4 and my motherboard has usb 2.0 pots and a parallel port but I'd rather use the USB so that I could keep using whatever cable I need to get in the future. I'd prefer a low cost solution, I saw some JTAG emulators that cost 100's which is more expensive than I thought would be necessary, however it would be helpful to be able to debug when I'm programming. Thanks
Would one of the USB ezdsp sticks work as a replacement for the JTAG? At least you can have a look at the schematics to see how those do the programming interface.
TI's documentation is really dense, especially outside MSP430 realm. The DSP's still seem to be firmly in deep pockets territory having expensive tools and proprietary compilers and hard to get information.
