Hi, I went to my college laboratory supervisor and asked if they had a JTAG programmer I could check out. He said, "yeah but there's a catch..." and the catch turned out to be twofold: one, sure I can have them if I don't mind please keeping them and two, they're parallel port. It turns out that JTAG hasn't been used for teaching computer engineering at my college for about two years, now. There is a giant pile of parallel-port JTAG programmers from Digilent sitting around, and I was given three of them to take home. I'm sitting here wondering how effective these will be if I patch them through a USB-parallel dongle. I would either need to set up a false parallel port mapped to the USB somehow, or would have to use software that expects me to try something like the dongle. Any solutions out there already existing?
