ML605 / SP605 / SP601 - Can I obtain the source code for the XC2C256 on this board?


Can I obtain the source code for the XC2C256 that enables configuration through USB JTAG on the SP601, SP605 and ML605 boards?


The XC2C256 enabling USB-based JTAG configuration of FPGA is not to be designed into an end-product. The protected Xilinx IP for USB JTAG interface is not available for emulation or reuse as indicated by the note at the top right that says this circuit is for reference only (see below).

Page 46 of theML605 Schematics.
Page 14 of theSP601 Schematics.

The note is reproduced below:

"The Embedded USB JTAG Download circuit on this page is for reference only!
This circuit should not be designed into an end customer product or solution.
Xilinx will not provide support on this embedded USB JTAG Download circuit."
