■ ST Micro Connection Package Description
The ST Micro Connect 2 is the next generation host-target interface from STMicroelectronics. It
can be connected to a local host or LAN using the 10/100 Mbit Ethernet connection or to a local PC host using the USB2.0 connection (USB 1.1 compatible). It connects to a target development board’s JTAG connector and provides host software with the ability to start up the target board, download programs and debug them in the target. It is easy to install and use. For multi-core system-on-chip devices (SoCs) the ST Micro Connect 2 can support multiple concurrent debuggers connecting to the different cores on the chip. The target is connected using a VHDCI LVDS connection. A convertor from LVDS to TTL is included for target boards with a TTL JTAG connector. The ST Micro Connection Package provides software utilities and firmware, including TargetPacks for certain ST evaluation boards. Supported hosts are Windows 2000/XP, Solaris and Red Hat Linux. The ST Micro Connect 2 is the preferred host interface for a wide range of ST development toolsets.
