Can I use the Stand Alone Debug Agent Board (ADZS-DBGAGENT-BRD or ADZS-SADA2-BRD) to connect to VisualDSP++ with my own custom board?





No, unfortunately you will not be able to use the Stand Alone Debug Agent (SADA) boards with your custom design. Our SADA boards can only be used with our new generation of EZ-Boards, which at the moment consist of the BF518F EZ-Board, BF526 EZ-board, 21469 EZ-board, 21479 EZ-Board and the 21489 EZ-Board.


Both the ADZS-SADA2-BRD, and the ADZS-DBGAGENT-BRD which it superseded, offer the same functionality in that they are very similar to the Debug Agent on existing EZ-Kit Lites but have the flexibility to move from one EZ-Board to another.


Please note, although the ADZS-SADA2-BRD is compatible with the same boards as the old ADZS-DBGAGENT-BRD product, support for the ADZS-SADA2-BRD within VisualDSP++ 5.0 was not added until Update 9.1. If you are using VisualDSP++ 5.0 you must have Update 9.1, or later, installed to use the ADZS-SADA2-BRD.
