USB Cable Support

Hello everybody,


is it possible to programm the FPGA with the Platform Cable USB or is it necessary to use the Platform Cable USB II.

Or is there perhaps another way to programm the FPGA ?


Best regards,

Re: USB Cable Support

Hi Stefan,


I am not sure if it is possible to program this board with the old Platform Cable USB through use of a more recent version of the Xilinx tools.


If you are looking for a cost effective replacement to your old cable, you might want to look into the Digilent JTAG HS2 Programming Cable.


The HS2 cable is supported by more recent versions of the Xilinx tools and you can buy this cable from Avnet as well.
