*Obsolete* 3.1i JTAG Programmer - When will it support programming for CoolRunner CPLDs?

Description

Keywords: JTAG, programmer, CPLD, mixed, chain, 9500, XPLA, support, program

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
If I have a JTAG chain consisting of 9500 CPLDs and CoolRunner CPLDs, can I use a single software tool to program all of these devices? Does the JTAG Programmer support the CoolRunner family?

Solution

The JTAG Programmer does not support the programming of CoolRunner CPLDs. For now, you must use the JTAG Programmer software to program 9500 devices, and the XPLA PC-ISP3 Programmer software to program CoolRunner devices. Within each tool, the device that is not supported may be put in bypass mode.

Latest versions of both the JTAG Programmer and PC-ISP3 Programmer are available for free download at:
