Product Overview

The PL-USB-BLASTER-RCN is a USB-Blaster download cable. This cable interfaces a USB port on a host computer to FPGA mounted on a printed circuit board. The cable sends configuration data from the PC to a standard 10 pin header connected to the FPGA. We can use the USB-Blaster cable to iteratively download configuration data to a system during prototyping or to program data into the system during production. The USB-Blaster download cable supports Stratix, Cyclon, Arria GX, APEX, ACEX 1K, Mercury, FLEX 10K, Excalibur series FPGA's and MAX series CPLDs. The USB-Blaster download cable supports target systems using 5.0V TTL, 3.3V LVTTL/LVCMOS and single ended I/O standards from 1.5V to 3.3V. This download cable is only available for Windows 2000, Windows XP (32bit and 64bit), Windows Vista (32bit and 64bit), UNIX and all Linux platforms such as Red Hat Enterprise 4, Red Hat Enterprise 5, CentOS 4/5 and SUSE Linux Enterprise 9.
  • It can perform ISP of EPC2, EPC4, EPC8, EPC16, EPCS1, EPCS4, EPCS16, EPCS64 and EPCS128 devices
  • Perform SignalTap II logic analysis
  • Supports the joint test action group (JTAG), passive serial programming and active serial modes
  • Requires 5.0V from the USB cable and between 1.5V and 5.0V from the target circuit board


Communications & Networking, Embedded Design & Development


To avoid damaging, first unplug cable from 10 pin header on target board before unplugging cable from the USB port on PC. It is safest to remove power first from the board before unplugging the cable.
