My name's Leonardo and I starting with ARM uC. I choose TMS470 and
I have some questions, maybe you can help me. Do you have the JTAG
scheme, between TMS470 and Standard 20 pin JTAG? How Can I do protect
the program code? I didn't see pins for Bootstrap load. Do you have
any scheme or documents about this uC, that different of TI's page?
Are you using any OS? What? Do you have the files?
Obs: Sorry, but my english isn't very well.
