**Obsolete** JTAG Programmer - Does the JTAG Programmer software support non-Xilinx devices in a JTAG Boundary scan chain?

Description

Keywords: JTAG Programmer, third, 3rd, party, non-Xilinx, non Xilinx, support, program

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
Does the JTAG Programmer software support non-Xilinx devices in a JTAG Boundary scan chain?

Solution

The JTAG Programmer software can recognize and place in bypass any device in the JTAG chain that is JTAG-compliant and contains a BSDL file. If the device does not have a BSDL file, you must either use the Generic BSDL file (available on the Xilinx web site), or input the requested information by hand.

Operations other than bypass for non-Xilinx devices are not supported. The JTAG Programmer software should only be used for configuration-related operations of Xilinx devices.

BSDL files for Xilinx parts or generic BSDL file for all parts are available at:
