usb to parallel converter wiggler openocd

I do a lot of my ARM development using GNU tools with cygwin, debugging with gdb and multiice.

I've been trying to use multiice using a USB to parallel cable (just so that I can use a notebook with no parallel port for debugging) , but the two different cables I've tried so far haven't worked. Has anyone done this, and of so could you recommend a USB/parallel adapter?

Hello dainis, in theory it should work, given that multiice is a windows application and the USB to parallel driver provides a virtual parallel port. I think the cheap cables I tried don't provide true didirectional port operation, although they're supposed to.


You're probably correct though. I'm quite impressed with the crossworks environment, so may just use that with their USB to jtag adapter.

Dainis, thanks for the pointers. I didn't know about openocd and it's exactly what I need. I'm off to have a good read of these pages to try and see if the Amontec cable will work with te Rowlet tools as well, which would be a nice bonus.
