JTAG-HS2 Programming Cable

The Digilent JTAG-HS2 Programming Cable is a must-have for anyone working with Xilinx field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). This high-speed programming solution is fully compatible with all Xilinx tools and can be seamlessly driven from iMPACT, ChipScope, and EDK.

One of the standout features of the HS2 is its versatility when it comes to attaching to target boards. Whether you are using Digilent’s 6-pin, 100-mil spaced programming header or Xilinx’s 2×7, 2mm connector, the HS2 has you covered. The included adaptor ensures a secure and reliable connection.

Another great aspect of the HS2 is its usability. Simply connect it to your PC’s USB port and it will be recognized as a Digilent programming cable, even if it is not attached to the target board. The separate Vdd pin supplies the JTAG signal buffers, ensuring optimal performance.

The HS2’s high-speed 24mA three-state buffers allow target boards to drive the cable with signal voltages ranging from 1.8V to 5V, making it suitable for a variety of applications. With bus speeds of up to 30MBit/sec, you can expect fast and reliable programming.

What sets the HS2 apart from other programming cables is its ability to share the JTAG bus with other devices. The JTAG signals are held at high-impedance when not actively driven during programming, allowing for seamless integration with other components.

With the HS2, you get a complete, mulipurpose JTAG programming solution for Xilinx FPGAs. It is compatible with IEEE 1149.7-2009 Class T0 – Class T4 (including 2-Wire JTAG) and features a high-speed USB2 port that can drive the JTAG/SPI bus at up to 30MBit/sec. The JTAG/SPI frequency is also user-settable, giving you full control over your programming process.

Included with the HS2 is a standard Type-A to Micro-USB cable, ensuring easy connectivity. The system board connector securely holds the small and lightweight HS2 in place, making it ideal for on-the-go programming.

If you’re in need of a reliable and versatile JTAG programming cable for your Xilinx FPGAs, look no further than the Digilent JTAG-HS2. With its high-speed performance, compatibility with Xilinx tools, and seamless integration with other devices, it is a must-have tool for any FPGA enthusiast or professional.
