port jtag cable buffered

Posted on Feb 5, 2014

This type of cable is a bit more complicated than the unbuffered one, although it is also fairly easy to construct. The cable most often used in this category is the so-called Wiggler cable. The Wiggler is a commercial cable sold by Macraigor Systems. With a list price of $150 USD they are not cheap. There is a schematic on the internet that is c

ommonly accepted to be the equivalent of what`s inside a Wiggler cable. This schematic, by Alec, was drawn up for devices that implement a typical EJTAG header in devices based on the ADM5120 System-on-Chip, another design based on the MIPS32 architecture. The ADM5120 has support for EJTAG v2. 6, which does not support DMA transfers. Whereas an unbuffered cable can be constructed for maybe $5 USD or less, the parts for a Wiggler-type cable will cost a little more, perhaps in the $15 to $30 USD range. The advantage of a buffered cable is that it is not as constrained as to length and is more immune to noise and static, thus permitting a higher data transfer rate. This cable is fully compatible with Macraigor OCD Commander. The wire between DATA6 (pin 8 on the LPT DB-25) and ERROR (pin 15) is used to identify a presence of the Wiggler cable and required by some JTAG software (i. e. Macraigor). It may be omitted for Hairydairymaid debrick utility. Another consideration is that a buffered Wiggler-style cable requires a voltage source to operate. Usually +3. 3 volts is needed and is commonly referred to as Vcc (voltage common-collector is the traditional meaning of Vcc). The buffer IC may take a Vcc from the PC LPT also. The DATA7 pin may be used for this purposes, so Wiggler software should provide aclive "1" at this pin. Do not use this pin if your JTAG header provides Vcc. Do not change 74HC244 (High-speed CMOS) series with...
