Product Overview

The HW-USB-IIG is a USB compatible cable for in circuit configuration and programming of all Xilinx devices. Much more than just a simple USB cable, platform cable USB II provides integrated firmware (hardware and software) to deliver high performance, reliable and easy to perform configuration of Xilinx devices. Platform cable USB II attaches to user hardware for the purpose of configuring Xilinx FPGAs, programming Xilinx PROMs and CPLDs and directly programming third party SPI flash devices. In addition, the cable provides a means of indirectly programming platform flash XL, third party SPI flash memory devices, and third party parallel NOR flash memory devices via the FPGA JTAG port. Furthermore, platform cable USB II is a cost effective tool for debugging embedded software and firmware when used with applications such as Xilinx's embedded development kit and Chip Scope pro analyzer.

Embedded Design & Development


Xilinx iMPACT software is required for programming and configuration.


Damage can result if the leads are un intentionally connected to high voltages.
