Description

Keywords: XPLA, PC-ISP, programmer, ISP, ISC, JTAG, CoolRunner, XPLA3, CoolRunner-II, download, cable

What download cable and software should I have to program a CoolRunner CPLD using ISP or JTAG?

Solution

The iMPACT Programmer supports the XPLA3 and CoolRunner-II family of CPLDs. iMPACT recognizes the Xilinx JTAG Parallel Cable 3, 4, and the MultiLINX serial/USB cable. The Parallel Cable 3 can be used for XPLA3 (CoolRunner-II as well, if VccAux is set to 3.3V), and the Parallel Cable 4 can be used for both CoolRunner XPLA3 and CoolRunner-II. For more information on cables, please refer to the Cable Support page on the Xilinx Web site at:
