Can multiple remote developers share a single hardware server, each debugging via separate JTAG chains

Can multiple remote developers share a single hardware server, each debugging via separate JTAG chains? We have four USB programmers connected to a single PC running the Vivado hardware server. Can each developer work on his device in parallel to others?

Hi @levinson,

Yes, you can!

Please take a look at the following post where I tested connecting to and programming two devices at the same time.

You might also want to actually create different instances of the hw_server application, each one listening on a different port (3121, 3122, etc.) and give each of those instances to each developer.

That might be a better idea so you don't overload one instance and make it run slow. Each developer would have their own instance that if they have problems or crash, should not affect the others.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks,
