Re: Nexus 5001

Right now I am experimenting with the Nexus debug in the openmsp430 core -- in this implementation the Debugger connects to GDB via Serial/I2C -- I am at the point where I am building a little debug stick from an ICEStick from Lattice to support this effort --  The openmsp430 is presently in a Spartan 6 LX-16 --

JTAG is old, slow, and intrusive.  It isn't the only way to debug embedded processors.  Nexus 5001 (http://www.nexus5001.org/) defines several levels of debug support, including JTAG.  For one implementation, see http://www.ip-extreme.com/IP/nexus_5001.shtml.

Once we even lost every computer in the building due to a lightning strike -- talk about a Jynx hanging over a plant.

@William: "When we were not dealing with scorpions, poisonous centipedes, black widows, or the occasional side-winder that would crawl into our lab..."

If only I had a coconut for every time someone had moaned to me about this sort of thing... :-)
