Xilinx is now offering its second generation Pb-Free (RoHS compliant) USB compatible cable for in-circuit configuration and programming of all Xilinx devices.
The Platform Cable USB II provides integrated firmware to deliver high-performance, reliable and user-friendly configuration of Xilinx FPGAs and programming of Xilinx PROM and CPLD devices. The Platform Cable USB II cable optimizes direct programming of third-party SPI flash memory devices and indirect programming of SPI or parallel NOR flash memory devices via the FPGA JTAG port. In addition, Platform Cable USB II is a cost effective tool for debugging embedded software and firmware when used with Xilinx applications such as the Embedded Development Kit and ChipScope™ Pro Analyzer.
Platform Cable USB II is an upgrade to and backwards compatible with Platform Cable USB. It has industry-leading performance and is compatible with Full Speed (USB 1.1) and Hi-Speed (USB 2.0) ports.
