Question
Are there any guidelines for using PEmicro's BDM Cables?
 
Answer
A: PEmicro advises the following to our customers who have PEmicro BDM Interface Cables:

1) Do not use an un-regulated power supply. BDM Cables receive power from the target board and any fluctuation in the voltage level may damage the microcontroller chip inside the cable.

2) Be careful when connecting the ribbon cable. If the ribbon cable is connected upside down, it might damage the microcontroller chip inside the cable.

3) Do not disconnect the cable from the target board if the board is powered ON. Always turn OFF the power supply of the target board and then remove the ribbon cable from the berg connector.

4) Always, but especially during wintertime, be careful of static charges. The environment in which you are using the BDM Cable should be as static-free as possible.
