Urgency: Standard

General Description:
What are the specs/dimensions for the pins and connectors on the JTAG and XChecker
Cables? This information is needed to include an interface on my PC boards so that I can
connect the cables to the board.

Solution

The flying wire connector (or header) used on Xilinx cables consists of .025" square gold-
plated pins placed on .10" x .10" centers (i.e., the pins are 1/10" apart in both rows and
columns.)
