KTAG KESS KTM BDM adapter Full Set is an electronic circuit intended for BDM operation on supported ECU. The adapter provides pogo pin based connectors for interfacing the ECU BDM connector. Interfacing the supported tool is made by the use of intermediate circuit board (multiplexer) that connects to the adapter over the MUX connector and to the tool over the desired tool connector (FGTECH, XPROG, BDM100,Dimsport, KTM100, Kess V2 & KTAG, etc.)

So, how to use DM adapters with Ktag Kess KTM100 Dimsport?
Steps outlined below describe a safe procedure when connecting and powering up the setup. Always be sure to provide the ECU power (from either tool or external source) after the adapter has been secured in a desired position - touching the ECU BDM pads. This will prevent you from short circuiting the setup.
all over the ECU PCB in which case you can not use the adapter directly - nevertheless it is
possible to manually route the adapter BDM signals to the ECU BDM pads (only for
this can be checked either visually or using a multimeter tool

adapter and ECU
for interfacing the tool used:
○ use provided 10-pin to 10-pin cable with FGTECH or BDM100 tools
○ use provided 10-pin to 16-pin cable with XPROG tool
○ use manufacturer 10-pin to 25-pin cable with KTAG tool
the 3-pin header (found on the adapter)
○ place jumper over left and central pins when using XPROG and FGTECH tools - this will use +12 V power delivered from the multiplexer board (external power) for powering the ECU
○ place jumper over right and central pins when using BDM100 or KTAG tools - this will use
+12 V power delivered by the tool for powering the ECU

○ multiplexer red LED should be lit up
○ adapter white LEDs should be lit up
○ ECU power (+12 V) should be present

is an electronic circuit board designed for a certain ECU (manufacturer), with pogo pins and a 10-pin
IDC connector for interfacing the multiplexer board.
is an acronym for Background Debug Mode, an interface designed by the Motorola company, widely
used in automotive industry, present on modern ECUs. Not all ECUs are capable of interfacing
through the BDM - see Appendix for the list of ECUs that support the BDM interface.
is an acronym for Engine Control Unit, a piece of hardware containing electronic circuit used to
control and monitor the vehicle engine operation.
ECU BDM CONNECTOR
is a set of pads found on the ECU, used to interconnect adapter with the ECU in non destructive
way - usually by the means of the pogo pins. Most of the ECU BDM connectors have their pads laid
out according to the standard Motorola BDM pin out. Some ECUs may have proprietary BDM pin
outs or BDM pads scattered all over the ECU PCB.
is a mechanical contraption used to fix the adapter for the BDM operation. It usually allows sliding
the adapter up and down to get it into contact with the ECU BDM connector.
is an electronic circuit board for interfacing any adapter through the 10-pin IDC connector (MUX)
with one of the supported BDM tools through the designated 10-pin IDC connector (FGTECH,
