DLC10 platform usb cable disable and enable via software

Hi,

 

Description:

I own a DLC10 platform  USB, with it i burn new firmware using JTAG.

one of the steps is to disconnect the JTAG cable in order the firmware to boot up.

 

I wish to do it via software commands because it must be an automated process, as I am writing a script for automation.

basically, i want the Yellow light to be turned off/become orange, as if it is not connected to the board.

I have tried bunch of commands via the api you provided, but with no luck (see attached image)

also, tried to disable the driver in "device manager" - it still detects it.

 

My pc configuration:

Window10

connected via USB2/3

 

Please assist.

 

Danny

Hi @kaminskid

Platform LED cant be turned to Orange by disabling the driver, it can be only done by powering off the board its connected to.

Can you elaborate what exactly you are trying to achieve here?

If your intention is to write to Flash connected to FPGA & Load from the Flash once its programmed by a script, it is doable by making use of the hw_server commands.

Re: DLC10 platform usb cable disable and enable via software

Furthermore, if the reason to "disconnect" the cable is for the PROM to program the FPGA, maybe all you need is to change the polling frequency or close the JTAG target. Take a look at this Answer Record:

Let us know if that helps.

Thanks,
