Programming Cplds With Hs1 Or Hs2


I got this question from a customer:


I'd really like to buy a compact USB JTAG programming cable for
configuring Xilinx XC95xx CPLDs, but I don't know which one.
In the docs for the HS3 cable it is explicitely stated that programming
XC95 is not possible. For HS1 or HS2 there are no lists of target
Can HS1 or HS2 be used to programm XC95xx XPLDs?
Can anyone help with this?

I contacted Digilent about the difference between the HS1 and HS2 programming cables.  The reply (velow) showed that the 9500/9500XL CPLDs are NOT supported by either cable.  Personally, I use their parallel port cable to program 9500 CPLDs.  I have a desktop,with a PCI parallel port card, running Win 7 .


JTAG-HS2 is a updated version for JTAG-HS1. We also recommend to buy JTAG-HS2 because this is newer than JTAG-HS1. 

The following features are not supported by the Digilent Cables:
• Xilinx 9500/9500XL CPLD programming or configuration 
• Xilinx 1700 or 18V00 ISP configuration PROM programming or configuration 
• Xilinx FPGA eFUSE programming Remote device configuration , more details:http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/sw_manuals/xilinx13_4/pim_r_supportedcables.htm .
