Bus Blaster V3c for MIPS is an economical, yet high-speed debug adapter designed for supporting JTAG debug with various MIPS processors. This version of the Bus Blaster has a 14-pin target connector and interface cable with buffering logic suitable for MIPS EJTAG targets. In other respects it is the same as the standard Bus Blaster V3c.
