JTAG HS2/Adept and Qt5?

Question

Hello!

  I'm planning to use a JTAG HS2 cable for custom SPI communication. Before I take the plunge and get the cables, I have a few questions:

1) is this cable based on the Digilent chip or the FTDI chip?

2) does the the Adept API work with Qt5 running in Cygwin on Windows7? Has anyone tried this?

3) has anyone tried using libusb to talk to the cable instead of using the Adept SDK?

Thanks!

hello Algea,

1) The HS2 programmer is a Digilent circuit built with an FTDI chip.

2) I haven't heard of it but I will email one of the engineers to confirm.

3) I am only aware of talking to the HS2 through Adept but it might be possible.  I'll tack this on my email to an engineer.

Thanks,

Marshall

Just to follow up on this topic... Qt5 (Windows/cygwin) works just fine with the Adept libraries for SPI communication. Nothing special needed here at all if you use the Qt5 IDE to build your app.

Using cygwin's command-line to build an app with the Adept libs is a different story, though.

Follow-up on the follow-up: if I use the dll's installed in the System32 directory, I can build using the cygwin command-line and g++. Using the .lib files does not work, though.
