  1. Thank you for the reply.  I was referring to port J15 and the PIC firmware.  However, I did miss that IC16 (J13) has an EEPROM so thank you for the information confirming that the programming tool is FTProg.

    Same question for J15.  Is there a method to validate or modify the PIC24 firmware connected to J15?

    Thank you.

  2. Is there a way using Vivado 2019.1 (or other tool) to read/update the firmware of the USB JTAG PIC processor?  Our process requires that we identify all programmable components and confirm that any non-volatile memory is configured as expected.  Using Xilinx iMPACT software the following information is reported after connecting to the Nexys Video A7-200 (410-316) board,

    • INFO:iMPACT - Digilent Plugin: Plugin Version: 2.4.4
    • INFO:iMPACT - Digilent Plugin: found 1 device(s).
    • INFO:iMPACT - Digilent Plugin: opening device: "NexysVideo", SN:xxxxxxxxxxxx

    • INFO:iMPACT - Digilent Plugin: JTAG Port Number: 0
    • INFO:iMPACT - Digilent Plugin: JTAG Clock Frequency: 10000000 Hz

    I assume the that the Firmware Version (010F) is referring to the USB JTAG firmware. 


    1. Is the reported Firmware 010F the USB JTAG firmware version?
    2. What is the recommended method for reading the version \ update the embedded USB JTAG firmware?
    3. I understand this is not a Xilinx forum but is there a known method to read\update the firmware using Vivado or using any of the installed Digilent plug-ins?

    Thank you.
