Quartus, JTAG, Programming Hardware

Started by Christian Kramer October 9, 2003
Hi!

I am using three CPLDs in my design. Each one has its own JTAG 
connector, an I have three Byteblasters connected to LPT1-LPT3 on my PC.
Is there any way to save the configuration, which hardware is to be used 
for programming in the .cdf-file for each design?

When I reopen the .cdf-files the programming-hardware is always the last 
one used - even if it was used in an different project.

Thanks,
Christian


Hi Christian,

    The Hardware information is stored separately from the cdf, as it is a
function of the programmer not the chain. However your suggestion to have
multiple HW profiles is a good one, and I will pass it on.

Hi Christian, If using the command line (DOS prompt) is possible you can try using the command line quartus programmer as follows: quartus_pgm --cable=ByteBlasterMV[LPT1] lpt1.cdf quartus_pgm --cable=ByteBlasterMV[LPT2] lpt2.cdf quartus_pgm --cable=ByteBlasterMV[LPT3] lpt3.cdf Hope this helps. - Subroto Datta Altera Corp.
