HW-USB-II-G on XC9500 (5V) series

Jump to solution

Hi.

 

Currenly looking into making performing a read-back of chiptype XC9572-100TQ-15Q. Was recommended earlier this year to try and use a Digilent HS3 JTag cable for this.

https://forums.xilinx.com/t5/General-Technical-Discussion/Reading-and-Writing-Chips-XC9500-series/m-p/867792#M41473

Via the Impact software, the software will recognise the chip upon connection, but readback/programming is not possible. It is also mentioned in the datasheet of the HS3 that these chips are not supported.

 

Came across this forum thread which claims this operation is possible using a HW-USB-II-G programmer.

https://forums.xilinx.com/t5/CPLDs-Archived/Programming-XC9500-5V-CPLD/td-p/473580

My only consern, is that the linked datasheet in response is for an earlier version of the programmer "HW-USB-G".

https://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/data_sheets/ds300.pdf

And in the newer version, there is a line which says "Removed obsolete XC4000, XC9500, XC9500XV, and Spartan devices from Features".

https://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/data_sheets/ds593.pdf

 

Though, the forum post claims the programming was successful using "HW-USB-II-G", I just want a confirmation whether this is possible or not, since this is an expensive programmer to invest money in...

 

Thanks in advance,

Matias

Yes. It should work. Here is the AR https://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/8097.html

From above AR
Platform Cable USB II

1) iMPACT v10.1 software:


Supports JTAG configuration for XC18V00, XCFxxS/xxP, XC4000E/EX/XL/XLA/XV, XC9500/XL/XV, Spartan/-XL/-II/-IIE/-3/-3E/3AN/3A/3A DSP, CoolRunner/-II,and Virtex/-E/-II/-II Pro/-4/-5

I got impatience for a response and already bought the programmer.
Can confirm readback is possible via iMPACT 14.7 :)
