Programming an FPGA via separate C++ application

Hello all,

I am very new to Xilinx, but I will try to explain my need in as much detail as possible, thank you for any help ahead of time!

I am looking to program FPGAs via a C++ application that will talk to my Platform Cable USB II device and then program the FPGAs. Since the C++ application will get the file and key locations from the user to write to the FPGA, I do not want the Vivado GUI. I was hoping for something like a C++ API to command the USB programmer I have, or worst case, command line calls.

The C++ program will get the locations of all the files needed to program the FPGA and I just need to pass that to some Vivado backend to do the programming.

Are there any options for doing this?

Thanks!

I think Digilent's Adept tools provide an API for programming Xilinx FPGAs. Not sure they work with the Platform Cable USB II, but it's worth a try.

I have downloaded the SDK, but I am not sure which lib to try with the Platform Cable USB II
