No command line reference for Impact/Was CableServer protocol ever documented?
I use ISE WebPack 11.1. Can someone point me to the PDF file, which would give me more detailed explanation on scripts used in -batch mode within Impact?
I wonder if there are any efforts to bring Cable server to the moderately acceptable condition so that its protocol could be known and documented? Executing this program also doesn't give you too much information. PDFs also seem silent about this interesting piece of ISE.
Concept of using TCP/IP to access cable programmers is definitely right. I wonder why it's not the default solution for all those JTAG cable problems.
There are open source projects that try to handle CableServer communication way, but I'm a bit tired with trying some random source codes, and I'd like to have rock-solid environment system powered on FreeBSD.
CableServer protocol could let FreeBSD users easily access USB/FTDI JTAG cables easily with Impact, since several drivers already for various cables already exist. Right now using Impact natively on FreeBSD generates a lot of PITA and requires some dirty black magic.
Is someone from the Xilinx team actively working on CableServer?
