Last year, I purchased a Stellaris LM3S8962 development kit because it was a tier 1 supported device. I then found that LabView only supports programming this device through a ULINK2 JTAG device that costs about $300. I'm a Grad student, and that's too much for me right now.
I purchased a unit that claimed to be a ULINK JTAG on ebay, but I found that it was just a clone of an earlier device, and is not supported either.
Is their any way that I can configure Labview to work with what I have? I have a Masters project involving PID loop control, and I'd really like to use LabView embedded to generate the code for my Evaluation board. (Without dropping 300 clams on a JTAG)
Thanks in advance,

I also have a project that I am interested in testing without a large upfront investment. Were you able to get your project and the generated code uploaded to your evaluation board? If so, was it a success?

On the project icon, right click New then Targets and Devices... Select "EK-LM3S8962 USB" rather than ""EK-LM3S8962" and you can use just the USB cable for downloading and debugging. By debugging I mean you can have debugging on and see indicators and modify control values.

sorry for my English, if I use ek-LM3S8962. Failure would be too much trouble, could you explain to me in Spanish, because my English is very weak. Thank you very much and greetings from Argentina

Uso de la EK-LM3S8962 sin el cable de ULINK2 JTAG es fácil. Es decir, usted puede usar el cable USB.
En el icono del proyecto, haga clic con nuevos objetivos, a continuación y de los dispositivos ... Seleccione "EK-LM3S8962 USB" en lugar de "EK-LM3S8962" y se puede utilizar sólo el cable USB para la descarga y depuración. Por la depuración quiero decir que puedes tener un depurador y ver los indicadores y modificar los valores de control.
