JTAG in Intel80386EX

Can I use the JTAG while the Intel80386EX microprocessor is running? i.e. to stop the MP clocking on some command and then use JTAG. And after using it, start clocking the MP again so that it executes commands

Hello Treskot,

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.  

To better assist you please provide the following information:

  • Are you a developer?
  • Are you working/testing a custom system?
  • Is this an embedded system project?


I would appreciate if you could provide more information about the environment.

Hello, @Esteban_D_Intel,

Thanks for the answer.

I am developing a bench to study this MP. The MP JTAG is used to read/write its external memory.At the bench, the MP program is implemented by commands.

To debug the program, you need to know the state of the MP registers. Therefore, after executing each command, the MP loads the register states into its external memory and stops at the next command. The memory area with register values is read using JTAG and output to the user, but after that the MP does not execute any further commands.

So I ask if I can use the JTAG to read its memory and then continue executing commands, or JTAG can not be used while the MP is running?
