xc3sprog

JTAG flashing tool for FPGAs, CPLDs and EEPROMs

xc3sprog is a suite of utilities for programming Xilinx FPGAs, CPLDs, and EEPROMs with the Xilinx Parallel Cable and other JTAG adapters under Linux. xc3sprog runs as a command-line application. The main features include: - Reading a .BIT file from Xilinx design tools and programming it into an FPGA. - Reading a JEDEC file and programming it into a CPLD. - Programming a .BIT file into an on-board configuration PROM. - Programming a binary image into on-board SPI flash memory. - Reading the contents of a PROM chip back to a file. - Programming AVR microcontrollers. The functionality of xc3sprog is similar to that of Xilinx IMPACT. There are also similarities with other free JTAG tools, such as UrJTAG. However, xc3sprog has a number of advantages: - xc3sprog is free software. - It is a command-line tool. - It works on Linux without the need to install binary "cable-drivers". (Although some types of JTAG cables need to load firmware.) - It uses an optional configuration file to recognize new JTAG devices. - It contains programming algorithms for the supported devices, enabling the direct use of binary files (.BIT / JEDEC) from design tools (as opposed to intermediate SVF/STAPLE files).
