looks like USB-1149.1/1E is for boundary scan tests, however it is suggested to contact the vendor directly and check for their complete usage.

HW-USB-II-G is mainly used for jtag configuration of xilinx fpga's and programming the Xilinx proms & supported third party flash interfaced to xilinx fpga which are listed in ug908. Xilinx programming cable is also for the logic debug with vivado programmer/debug tool

I agree with @kkn. With the USB-1149.1/1E cable, you'll be able to use the Corelis software and functionalities.

On the other hand, the Xilinx HW-USB-II will be natively recognized by Xilinx software (Vivado, iMPACT, Chipscope...) It will have limited functionalities with devices from other manufacturers and probably won't work with 3rd party software.

What are you planning to use the cable for? Maybe that will help forum users provide more input.

Thanks,

Andres
