Xilinx CPLD XC2C64A + JTAG-HS3

Question

Posted (edited)

Hi,

I am trying to program a Xilinx XC2C64A CPLD with the JTAG-HS3 programming cable and Digilent Adept sw but it desn't work. 

The sw detects the right device but it fails to program it.

If I use the Impact sw, the device gets programmed properly!

I did my tests on a  Win7 PC. Soon I have to switch to Win10 and I know Impact will not work anymore... Do you have any suggestion about this issue? Could it be the JED file is not compatible with Adept sw (I would exclude any hw issue as it works with Impact)? 

Thank you in advance

Stefano

Hi @Zosty,

I reached out to another engineer more familiar with Adept and learned that particular CPLD was likely added by mistake to the recognized device list within Adept, but (as you have found out) was never tested to confirm to work correctly like other CPLDs that are also on the list and within the same family (such as the XC2C256 or the XC2C32A).

The solution at this point would be to use ISE to program that CPLD. If you are upgrading your machines/OS's, and still need to program this CPLD, I would recommend setting up a virtual machine on a separate partition to host and support ISE programming.

Thank you,
JColvin

Hi JColvin,

thank you very much for your prompt reply.

I will follow your suggestion to set up a VM and to host ISE; I hope this solution works...

Thanks
