Time is fly so fast when you are on vacation 😉 It’s Friday again and time for our next Quiz ISSUE#4

Today the quiz prize is ARM-USB-TINY-H (USB HIGH Speed) OpenOCD JTAG debugger. With it you can program and debug almost any ARM device and with the recent development made by Sergey Vakulenko EJTAGPROXY http://code.google.com/p/ejtagproxy/ you can also program and debug MIPS cores like PIC32 but you have to make special cross-cable.

You can win this board if you answer correctly to our question today.

The conditions are still same: At 17.00 o’clock our local Bulgarian time (UTC/GMT+3) we will post question on Twitter, you have to reply to our Tweet with the correct answer.
At 18.00 o’clock we will count the correct answers and ask at random.org for random number in this range, then anounce the winner.

Good Luck to everyone!

EJTAGproxy is open source project just released by Sergey Vakulenko at http://code.google.com/p/ejtagproxy/

It’s a command-line utility, which connects GDB to ICSP port of pic32 via pickit2 or pickit3 scripting edition. A standard GDB remote serial protocol is implemented. It also can be used with Eclipse, DDD, Insight or other compatible debuggers. All families of pic32 are supported, including mx1/mx2. The utility works on Linux, Windows and Mac OS X. Sources are available under BSD license.

PIC-KIT3 (ICSP) and ARM-USB-TINY (JTAG) interfaces are supported.
